@The_Master_Riddler - he said, 3 pointer makes 50 '3 point' shots, then makes 100 '2 point' shots which altogether equals 350. [(3x50)=150 + 200=(100x2)] = 350

con's math is wrong. he said it equals 350 but that is not true, it equals 150.

> "You can't objectively claim: "You're argumentation sucks balls." if you don't even know what it says."

It's worth considering your audience and whether you could've stated your primary case in fewer and/or simpler words. Consider if Obama had filled his presidential debates with complex legal terms he learned at Harvard. He may have been right, but also lost the debates.

I have considered your vote bomb complaint. A vote bomb is a vote w/o a stated reason for the vote.

For arguments, I can't agree. He gave a clear rationale--'Some of Beginner's arguments were unclear and not really clear... That's why I gave the "convincing arguments" category to ati.'

For conduct, I agree. He said this--"Also, Ati had better conduct throughout the whole debate." This does not explain how ati's conduct was better than Beginner's conduct.

So you're saying vote bombs are justified. True, voting is their choice, but I have a right to a counter vote if the vote is obviously bad, unfair and biased (such as vote bombs, which are usually countered when cast). The person didn't even lift a finger to try understanding my premises. You can't objectively claim: "You're argumentation sucks balls." if you don't even know what it says.
That's basically what this DebaterAgent is doing.
I'm not asking for DebaterAgent should be punished, I'm simply asking for a counter vote.
There are simply not enough people who use DDO. The few debaters who are able to vote are largely apathetic.
I only ask for more voters to read the round and give a relatively objective verdict. :(

To Beginner: You can say anything about me, but you shouldn't say anything bad about a voter. Vote is their choice.

I urge for a counter-vote to this relatively obvious bad vote to this relatively obvious win. I admit, my conduct isn't exactly good, but I feel my spelling/grammar and argumentation far exceeds that of my opponent.

WHat in the world.. I'm going to take my first loss to some horrible unreasoning voter. :'( Nooo! Someone do something!! It's an obvious win by yours truly who is panicking!! AAAAGHH!!! HELP!!!
I admit, it takes some time to sift through the long and thought-out examples, but that is no reason to renounce the debater's (in this case me) reasoning based on simple inability or refusal to attempt an understanding of the respective debater's mathematical/logical premises.
BRO! Mr. DebaterAgent! I put a lot of time and effort in to constructing this argument and I expect you, as voter to spend only a fraction of that time to understand it.
You can't condemn my reasoning to be deficient if you don't even know what it is.
I suspect a a vote-bomb in disguise, balanced to hide its nevertheless obvious voting based on factors outside of the debate rounds.

Patrick, it's not obvious at all to me, that a person's worth is determined by his skill at basketball. I would make Hitler the 2-point shooter and Gandhi the 3-point shooter, and leave it up to Pro to meet the burden of proof that Hitler is better than Gandhi. Con has even made a comeplling argument that the 3-point shooter may be the better asset to a basketball team. ;)

To Patrick: I've proven you wrong with simple mathematics. :D

To bladerunner: noob-sniping is too fun :)
