MY OPPONENT OFFERS NO PROOF OF THE FACEBOOK TOURNAMENT'S EXISTENCE, SO I WIN BY DEFAULT. AND 'THE' MEANS SOMETHING WHICH THERE IS ONLY ONE OF, BUT THERE ARE MANY FACEBOOK TOURNAMENTS ON FACEBOOK. BOTTOMLINE, I WIN NO MATTER WHAT.

*sigh... this wasn't meant to be a debate BUT if you want to make a debate out of it so be it....... Debate.org is involved with a tournament being run off of facebook. Round 2 is out. Therefore "Round 2 for the facebook tournament is out." If you don't believe me check the "system updates" on the front page of the sight. It's the very top one. You said that facebook holds a lot of tournaments but there is only one DEBATE tournament.

NOTE TO DEBATERS INVOLVED: April 15th is the challenge deadline for Pro (10:00pm Central Time)

MY OPPONENT IS WRONG. THE RESOLUTION SAYS FACEBOOK TOURNAMENT. IT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT A DEBATE TOURNAMENT. THERE IS MORE THAN ONE FACEBOOK TOURNAMENT. NOT ONLY IS THERE A DEBATE TOURNAMENT, BUT THERE ARE ALSO THESE TWO TOURNAMENTS:

HANGMEN: http://www.facebook.com...
CHESS (SEE INSIDE FOR TOURNAMENTS HELD IN THE GROUP): http://www.facebook.com...

THESE TOURNAMENTS HAVE HAD MORE THAN TWO ROUNDS. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT MORE THAN ONE TOURNAMENT PROVES THE RESOLUTION FALSE. VOTE CON.

there is only one facebook tournament that has ANYTHING to do with this site and that is the one on facebook. AND even if there are other tournaments, what's wrong with the schedule for round 2 being out. Our tournament is A tournament and round 2 is out... plain and simple...
THEmanlyDEBATER2

Con

MY OPPONENT DID NOT REFUTE ANY OF WHAT I SAID IN THE LAST ROUND. AND HE PRESENTS NO PROOF THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE FACEBOOK TOURNAMENT THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS SITE. THIS IS A COMPLETE ASSUMPTION.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE SCHEDULE BEING OUT, BUT AS I'VE EXPLAINED, "THE" WOULD MEAN THAT THERE WAS ONLY ONE TOURNAMENT. I'VE PROVEN THAT THERE IS MORE THAN ONE FACEBOOK TOURNAMENT; I'VE WON ACCORDING TO THE RESOLUTION.

BY SAYING THAT OUR TOURNAMENT IS "A" TOURNAMENT, JOHNICLE CONCEDES TO MY CASE AS HE CONCEDES THAT OUR TOURNAMENT ISN'T "THE" TOURNAMENT. SO YEAH, I WIN ..... PLAIN AND SIMPLE .... VOTE CON BECAUSE I TOLD YOU SO.

it's funny that he has 2 votes: 1 from himself, and 1 from himself after he started up a new account.

hmmm... it seems that my "opponent" has been banned........ again........ and has made another account......... again... I think we need to begin making bets (not actual ones b/c I think that's illegal right now) about how many times one person can get banned

Didn't this guy get banned already? Why accept a debate not meant to be one?

I think any posts like this have the blessing of the site, actually, considering they are giving away a cash prize, etc. And, like Pluto said, does it really matter? Don't read it, don't take it, don't worry about it. Thanks!

its not really an 'ad', its to inform remind the people. Plus, does it really matter?
