Lol, why is Zaratte banned from voting on this debate?

XD I apologize but I can't help but laugh at the situation. This is probably the one debate you have where you didn't put that acceptance without permission is an auto forfeit Hahah.....don't worry, I'll make this a good round, I won't disappoint.
