The Game: A mind game where thinking about the game constitutes a loss.

You are always playing the game, and my opponent does not need to provide his awareness or consent.

My opponent has just lost the game.

Thank you.

I would like to remind about 1 rule. When voting on a debate, one should only consider what is said within the debate and nothing that is said outside of the debate. Thank you

So I saw that Brainmaster had created another debate, though I'll have to admit, I didn't even both reading the title or his argument. I just had so much fun on the last one, that I figured that I would do another with him. I'm assuming that the first rounds are for introductions and so no need for an argument. Hopefully I'll have time to read his arguments for the next round.

Thanks,

Thanks OreEle.

Argument 1.

It is not possible to not play the the game. The game is always being played without your consent. In fact, my opponent is playing the game right now (and so is everyone else.) Thus she can always lose the game.

Argument 2.

By rebutting this statement, she agrees she has read this statement. If she does not rebut this statement, she concedes this point.

Sorry, I'm a little short on time, so I just read your last argument. "By rebutting this statement, she agrees she has read this statement. If she does not rebut this statement, she concedes this point."

I'f read that statement, but I cannot rebut the fact that I read it, because I did read your round 2 argument. Sorry, my lack of time means I still haven't read the title, nor the opening round. Was this argument 2 related to the resolution? If it was, then I probably lost, but if it wasn't, I don't see any issues with my response.

Sorry for the rush, not sure what you mean by conceding to point 1 (still haven't read it, these darn time restrictions on my life).

However, when concidering how to vote, I fully accept that by me not reading my opponent's arguements (though I read 1/2 of the round 2 and all of round 3), I showed poor conduct, and should be penalized, however, my opponent has called me a "she" at least 3 times (and that's only in the sections I read), which is also poor conduct, as seeing as I'm a man.

When considering who won the arguments, we only need to ask the voters to read the resolution (which I still haven't) and see if Pro met the burden of proof of proving that resolution beyond doubt.

I also remind people of what I pointed out in my first round, which my opponent (to the best of my knowledge) never objected to. To only vote on things said in this debate, and not consider anything said outside of it.

Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Con was extremely creative in terms of how he countered Pro's arguments. But it came down to whether or not Pro satisfied the burden of proof. And he didn't. Therefore, Con wins. But for not reading the arguments (since I was told to judge only based on what was said in the debate), conduct does go to Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: The resolution was odd and the arguments very interesting since oreEle didn't read any arguments nor the title of the argument he could not have known what was going on and so was not aware that he lost which Brainmaster did not prove

Reasons for voting decision: In R1 Pro asserts that thinking about the game constitutes a loss. He then states that you are always playing the game. This however does not mean that playing the game constitutes a loss, but only that thinking about it does. Since Con "never" read the opening statement he never thought about it, and therefore did not loose according to the resolution. For conduct, Pro gets that one. Calling your opponent a she is bad, but not as bad as (uh hum) not reading the opening statement.

Reasons for voting decision: CON's win was clever and wicked funny. PRO gets points for conduct. CON states that PRO should lose conduct points for calling CON a she, but CON is a she.
