First round is for acceptance.

I accept this debate challenge and I will argue that net neutrality is not a horrible idea.
Sorry for bad english in advance.

Net Neutrality is simply an ideal.
The internet is a different creature, even a house of cards would be a decent description.
Talking about the internet like it actually exists or is run by anyone is ignorant.
Computers themselves will become the internet in the future and will feel more like a retail experience.

I think what he means is that which side is holding the BOP to the proposition.

Ah.
"BOP" means the Burden of Proof.
The person claiming that the resolution is true has the BOP for the resolution.

I was asking if Con would have to carry the BOP for the *negation* of the resolution. I.e., does Con have to demonstrate that "Net Neutrality *isn't* a horrible idea", or would he simply have to refute your proposed arguments?

I'm sure the answer is yes to my original question; I'm just slightly pedantic when it comes to the BOP and claims. Sorry for any trouble.

Xantog
could you explain the BOP resolution?

You should specify whether or not you're going to force Con to carry the BOP for the negation of the resolution.
