RESOLVED: All debate resolutions should not be one sided
Debate Rounds (3)
You are forced to post bizarre, off the wall arguments, but then they get mad and remove your argument; they were expecting a free win.
Debates such as
are prime examples.
Please stop making one sided resolutions. If you agree vote Affirmation.
"Farming their win ratio... speaks so much of their character."
Not necessarily. They may simply be trying to prove dissenters wrong or seeking a challenge, as in this debate:
"Forced to post... they get mad and remove your argument"
No one forces you to post anything. An ordinary user can only have your argument removed if it is spam or otherwise breaks the TOS.
"Debates such as X and Y..."
As long as someone is willing to argue against it, there is nothing wrong with it. Even if no one takes it, the debate simply expires, so there is no reason to restrict these types of resolutions.
People should continue making whatever resolutions they want.
RESOLVED: All debate resolutions SHOULD not be one sided.
I am questioning the ethics of one sided debates.
Of course avoiding one sided debates would solve there useless existence, but why even make them? Why would someone do such a thing? To show off a better a win-loss ratio perhaps?
One sided debates are for selfish, vain people that have nothing better to do. And not only is the existence of these topics bad, but also this.
They do not allow you to attack from original angles.
So now not only did they rig the debate, but they also don't allow you to stretch the parameters, or even question the idea of what they propose.
In conclusion, only a controversial topic leads to prope
"They do not allow you to attack from original angles." This is completely false. How could they stop you? As I said last round, they can only have your argument removed if it violates the TOS. Attacking a debate from an original angle is not a breach of the TOS, so they can do nothing about it. One-sided debates allow for a greater challenge. Also, both sides must agree to debate, so no one is hurt by these.
There is no problem with one-sided resolutions.
funnybrad333 forfeited this round.
My opponent has failed to defend his arguments against my refutations, so they fall, and my arguments stand unrefuted. Thus, voting for CON seems wisest.
Thank ye for reading.
