Con

Here is how this will go. Each person will say ONE WORD, and the voters will decide which is better. Kind of random but this is just for fun. Here is my word...

Chocolate.
CAPLlock

Pro

I typed it in my RFD. It's not hard to spell at all. It is a conglomerate of common prefixes and other words that, when separated, are incredibly simple to spell.

CAPLlock, how did you misspell the word? Did you really sit there and type it?

S&G goes to Con because Pro misspelled the word. Pro gets sources because he provided sources. Arguments goes to Pro because his word was more "random" and complex. Besides, it taught me something new and was quite interesting :D

@Wierdman: Well, yeah. But there is such a thing as copying and pasting for accuracy. Like when spelling naïveté or façade. You need to copy and paste to get it completely right.

Reasons for voting decision: RFD in comments. I know this should be short reasoning and an RFD isn't really needed, but it always cuts them off :P

Reasons for voting decision: I have to say. Pro had a very big word with a good definition and that definetly beats chocolate. He also had a source but con didnt. Pro mispelled so con gets spelling and grannar.

Reasons for voting decision: Usually they say size doesn't matter, but the ridiculous length of Pro's word really did it for me.

Reasons for voting decision: This debate was about who could provide a "better" word. The word "Chocolate" has no basis to be considered better. Meanwhile Pros word is the longest recognized word in the English language, so on that note he clearly defeats Con. Misspelling the word just means Pro loses spelling and grammar.

Reasons for voting decision: Hmm.PRO misspelled... ANd chocolate is much more common and supported by a lot more people. Just using long, complex words doesn't get you the vote, PRO... XD

Reasons for voting decision: While Pro had debatable spelling, kyro didn't have the best grammar and punctuation either. I agree that Pro used sources, so OBVIOUSLY the source point goes to Pro.
