No matter what the topic, I will not win this debate. I challenge any great debater to prove me wrong. The only source my opponent and I can use for this debate is http://thisissand.com... I will wait for Con to start it off. Let the games begin, literally.

Con

My opponent will indeed win this debate. After I submit my argument for Round 3 of this debate, I shall give the three Convincing Argument points to my opponent. Therefore, his profile would call this debate a victory for him. I shall then change my vote to fit the proper categories based on how this debate actually went. However, my opponent will have briefly won this debate, and therefore, the resolution would be affirmed, allowing me to win the debate.

In conclusion, my opponent will win this debate, so the resolution is negated.

And I shall give three Convincing Argument points to my opponent as well, making it a tie. Therefore the debate will not have been won but tied. I wil knot winn thiz debate becauze my oponent'z'z grammer nd spellin is butta then myne. Point goes to Con for grammar.

Source:
http://www.google.com...

I have broken my own rule of only using http://thisissand.com... as a source. Therefore, point goes to Con for reliable sources.

My opponent is a dipstick and a retard.

Because my conduct is derogatory toward my opponent, he will gain a point in the conduct category, thus putting him closer to winning the debate.

Resolution affirmed.
mongeese

Con

My opponent's counter-plan is to give himself three points to make the debate a tie. However, I shall make sure that he is not online when I post my final argument, so that when I do, I shall immediately be able to give him the three points for Convincing Arguments, as up until that point, he would not have won this debate, and therefore, he would deserve the points. However, once he receives the points, he suddenly no longer deserves them, as the resolution would be negated, and I would instead give the points to myself.

After this, I would consider conduct, spelling, grammar, and sources, and allot myself those four points, which means that my opponent really has no chance of a permanent victory, as even the most generous person would have to give me four points and my opponent only three.

In conclusion, my opponent shall win this debate immediately after this debate concludes, and therefore, the resolution will be negated, and I shall win this debate at any point beyond that.

In fact, my opponent has no hope of permanent victory. Whenever he is winning, the resolution would be negated, and I would deserve the votes, while whenever I am winning, he was already winning, so the votes would stay with me. It's a Catch-22, in which my opponent can't succeed, as temporary victory in this sense would not even be a real success.

Well, I've rambled on long enough. With that, I give the floor to my opponent.

Ah, but here comes the screwball. DDO will not allow me to confirm my identity no matter which cell phone I use. If I cannot confirm my identity, I cannot vote. The voting system is flawed, because I am not the only one who is encountering this problem. Multiple users with this problem could tip the balance of whether or not I win this debate.

My opponents reasoning is flawed as well, because I could give $100 to 13,258 users to vote for my opponent the split second the debate ends, thus he would win the debate immediately and permanently.

Con

My opponent cannot vote. That only helps me.

Now my opponent has an evil plot to make me win permanently. For one thing, this would take a whole lot of money, which I doubt my opponent would be willing to pay for a thing as trivial as a debate. For another, why would having a bunch of voters making me win immediately and permanently make me lose? As long as I am winning voting-wise, I am winning, and once my opponent is winning voting-wise, the resolution becomes negated forevermore, and I win.

In conclusion, I'm going to vote PRO, then CON, so you guys follow suit by voting CON!

PRO is winning. Therefore, PRO must permanently lose.

And here I was, hoping for a dissertation on the justice of actively giving the more-deserving debater the loss (voting Con) versus actively giving the less-deserving debater the win (voting Pro)...

Ah, I see what you did. Still, I wouldn't switch my vote back if I were you. Best to keep it PRO for about two days or three so that the lay voters aren't inclined to make a mistake.

lol. You did it wrong. You were supposed to vote PRO immediately (and post your final round why he was offline).
