Pro

Youtube is a website that lets us watch free videos like cartoons, news, etc.
Youtube helps the common working woman (ladies first) and/or man see what he has missed with out having to pay. We could also see music videos.

Con

First, as I always do, will thank my opponent for this debate.

Judging by the argument presented by my PRO and the debate title, I am going to assume that I am charged with the burden of proving Youtube is harmful to society.

-->Youtube is not free. Internet service is required. (cost money)

-->Youtube can allow young children to watch inappropriate contented.

-->Youtube harms the economy by making it near impossible for artist to protect copyright.

500 character limit is horrid.

Con definitely did a much better job. That said Youtube gives it's users the right to flag inappropriate Videos, The site itself is free to users (if you go to the site you're already paying for internet, it's not the site that costs money), in my opinion "Youtube harms the economy by making it near impossible for artist to protect copyright." Is an incorrect statement, Youtube has popularized many artists and gives publicity to many more, someone who hears a song is much more likely to buy that song than if he had never heard it. Also Youtube gives copyright holders the right to take down videos that violate copyright laws. Also anyone who wants to get rid of youtube should probably have his brain checked (not saying con should I doubt he actually believes his position) Con gets my vote simply because he laid out his points more clearly and had better points than his opponent.

Horsey blew this out of the water. I bet pro thought he was going to have it easy on this one, it was a done deal. But wait! Out of the blue rides the itallion on his stallion and surges his metal rod into the back of pros cerebellum and gorges out his eyeballs from the inside out, so for a brief second he can see a corrupted vision of horsey riding into the sunset with a victorious day behind him!
Always talk to the water boy, have regard for the things that you dont understand, and most importantly, fear the underdog. Otherwise you will not survive.

A 500 character limit is horrible; when I accepted the debate, I misread it as 5,000. What a stupid mistake.

Actually, I take that back. I'm not gonna do this until you present a better R1 than that. Wouldn't want to be accused of "playing semantics" now would I? I'll accept the debate when it's clarified more on what the purpose is.
