Pro

-- In this debate, the cards will be stacked against Con. If Con accepts, it means that he also accepts the rules by default; no contesting a rule after accepting the debate --

Rule 1: If a rule is broken (directly or indirectly), then an automatic 7 point forfeit results for whoever broke the rule, assuming that rule applies to them.

Rule 2: Rules with a * directly beside them only apply to my opponent

*Rule 3: First round is just for acceptance

*Rule 4: With regards to the entire debate, every other letter must be a capital letter, with the remaining letters being lower case letters (For example, "aBcDeF..." but obviously they don't have to be in alphabetical order). Every line must start with a lower case letter, and my opponent can chose as many lines as he/ she wishes.

Rule 5: No contesting a rule after the debate has been accepted

Have fun, it should be entertaining ha
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Con didn't start his line with a lower case letter. Ergo, as per rule 4, my opponent will lose this debate, with 7 points awarded to Pro.

Thank you.
JacobAnderson

Con

Actually I will only lose if voters actually care to vote that way.

Well, if someone clearly loses a debate, then reasonable people are not going to vote for him/ her. Usually there are a couple of trolls in the bunch, but that is expected.

Con

Well this isn't even a legitimate debate I did this to waste an already wasted debate because the idea wasn't interesting

A trap is something that nobody expects, like an ambush. However, when you willingly put yourself in that position, you are trapping yourself.

Rational_Argument--I notice that you do not seem to care about ethics or morality. Or dignity. May I ask why you enjoy setting up traps for persons new to this site?

The topic is exactly what the resolution says. I will argue that you will lose the debate, and I can win by having better arguments, however, I can also win if you break a rule. This is how the game is. It is a debate/ game. The rules must be followed.
