Con

For this debate, the Pro endorces "Metallica" drummer Lars Ulrich's stance in the US lawsuit against Hank Berry, Shawn Fanning and the Napster community.

I, as Con, do not. I am free to endorse the status quo (at the time) or a counter-plan (in this case, counter-law-suit) against Lars Ulrich, who the Pro represents.

At the time of this debate, we are to assume that all results of said lawsuit are nonexistant, as are any other relevant items that branched from Napster or the suit today. Limewire does not exist. BitTorrent does not exist. Et cetera.

I don't want to bind this debate up with stupid rules or definitions, just PLEASE be logical and avoid the semantical argumentation. NOTE THIS NOW: IF YOU PLAN ON MAKING SEMANTICAL EXTRA-TOPICAL ARGUMENTS, DO NOT ACCEPT THIS DEBATE, OR YOU WILL TO FORFEIT IN-ROUND.
Basically, use common sense. I want to have fun as well as give the DDO community a good show.

Though this might not be an LD debate, I allow the Affirmative to create and present its constructive arguments, where I will therein follow with my NC and attack the AC.

I'm only accepting this because I know I will be banned soon, and I only have a couple of arguments.

I assume this round is just for accepting the debate and I await your response.

I greatly thank my opponent for accepting my debate, and I sincerely hope he doesn't get banned, or at least until the debate is over.

But, actually, that round WAS supposed to be used as your affirmative constructive, but I will sacrific my current entry so that you can start off.

Good luck. :)

Napster sucks. So does iTunes. And the entire Apple company, for that matter. If you're really hat desperate for music, buy a CD. It has the cool cover art, you can actually lend it to your friends, and send it on the internet.

Ah, why the hell that? It's your own fault if someone makes it semantical.

By forfeit in round, I mean that DDO voters will look back at the first post and say, "Hey, you knew the rules" making them loose, officially, before the debate is over.

St. Anger failed, and so does Lars Ulrich :|

Metallica rocks!!!!

But even I wont defend Lars's actions on Napster.

He did illegally download his latest album.

Metallica annoys me -- mainly Kirk Hammett. Maybe if he could play without his wah pedal, I'd be impressed, but he doesn't, so I'm not.

There is no reason at all for you to be Con, other than shift the BoP. Lame...
