Seriously, in a 1 round debate the instigator can't even post their rebuttal. 2 rounds are too short as well.

The best debate is an assertion with the absence of conflicting opinions.

"The best debate is an assertion with the absence of conflicting opinions."
debate- a formal discussion on a particular matter in a public meeting or legislative assembly, in which opposing arguments are put forward and which usually ends with a vote.
Without conflicting opinions, it won't be a debate.
Most 1 round debates will be like " Megatron is real" "Megatron isn't real because...." The one accepting the debate gets an unfair advantage due to rebuttal points.
2 round debates too don't have much scope, especially if the argument of the instigator doesn't start in the first round. There is often a rule of 1 round for acceptance, which is not possible in a one round debate.

Con

The best debate is when the opponent is swiftly terminated, in one round or less.

"The best debate is when the opponent is swiftly terminated, in one round or less."
According to my opinion, the best debate is the one where both sides can present all points of their argument and possible rebuttals. The more enriching a debate about its topic, the better. Anyways, con hasn't rebutted many of my arguments, so vote for pro.

I do research to pass the next grade. Due to school I have lost the inclination to learn anything new. It is sad, I actually used to like doing work before, but now...

But you do research to learn, not win the debate. Once you make the goal of the debate to LEARN rather than to WIN, you grow.

Reasons for voting decision: The brief analysis of the problem, utterly rules out single-round debates from deserving to exist here, and con tried to troll with an assertion that "one round or less" is best as their entire case to refuture pro's logic. Going by pro's logic, the frequency of acceptance rounds confirms that to rule out the single round debates (which he showed to be a negative) three should be the minimum.
