I think it's absolutely disgusting that some people would like to post joking, or "trolling", debate topics simply to get to their 3 completed debates requirement to vote. I mean sure, anyone could walk up and make a 1 round, 500 character debate with a 1 week voting period, but that completely ruins the integrity of the site! Because this is an absolutely wrong style, please vote pro in this debate.
Pro has expressed disgust with trolling debates. A trolling debate topic is a 1 round, 500 character debate with a short voting period. By Pro's definition, this is a troll debate. The resolution is that people shouldn’t engage in such debates, that includes him. To vote Pro is to legitimize his behavior and undermine the resolution. Pro is responsible for creating a ‘fun’ atmosphere and not a ‘disgusting’ one (1). Vote CON.
Reasons for voting decision: Con did not argue against the resolution, but against Pro himself for making this debate. The resolution was that people shouldn't, it said nothing about Pro initiating one, etc. I vote Pro.
Conduct for the win.
Args. because it was funny.
Reasons for voting decision: The definition included using it to get to the quota sooner, which Pro did not do. Actually, hypocrisy is not a criteria for judging in any case. Pro's case was pure assertion, but Con didn't counter the argument. A weak counter like "anything that fully obeys the rules is not contrary to the site" would have won the debate, since there is no rebuttal in a one round debate.
