Debate.org is a wonderful place where men and women of all ages can join a one-to-one debate sharing wonderful ideas and anyone can say whatever they want. I think that this is not arguable, if you know just how awesome this site is.

This site is utter garbage. Debates like "who can act more boring"(http://tinyurl.com...) and "Is putin drunk on vodka?" (http://tinyurl.com...) are rampant. Forums are constantly flooded with spam threads on a daily basis, even to the point where subforums like the economics forum are dominated by it. And don't even get me started on the opinions and polls section...

Voting on the site is also poor. The voting is so bad that it's pushed prominent and highly skilled debaters such as bluesteel and thett3 to declare that they won't debate on this site again.

If the site fails to actually uphold to the ideas that it was created for, then it wasn't a good idea to make it.

And you're prefering my analysis of the site over my opponent's because he lacks the experience required to understand the inner workings of the site. He literally created his account yesterday, so he hasn't been around long enough to see the worst this site has to offer.
