yes it is. There were no sources. So giving reliable sources to anyone wouldn't be fair. Spelling and grammar was equal. Convincing arguments, well neither person argued so that is tied. What on earth makes it not a vote bomb?

Voting seven points because one side forfeited the entire debate is not a vote-bomb.

Sorry, I will have to decline. I know nothing about the topic and it does not interest me. Try making it an open challenge.

Reasons for voting decision: Con acknowledged folly and forfeited the debate. Pro did not make an argument, he made a spectacle of something that could have been done with more tact and grace.

Reasons for voting decision: Plagerism costs the conduct, but no arguements were actually made by either side, so only the conduct point is issued.

Reasons for voting decision: While Pro never argued, he does however receive points for conduct (due to wierdman's plagiarism of a website for his opening post). This was an unfortunate end for a debate that could have been potentially interesting, especially in regards to the use of animals as 'objects of sport and entertainment'. I anticipated a discussion on animal rights and so forth by Con and so on, though none of that occurred due to Con's decision to plagiarize.

Reasons for voting decision: It's a shame, really. This debate could've been interesting, had Con not plagiarized. That makes conduct go to Pro. However, Pro should've still presented some form of argument, just to be polite. So, since there were (looking at this debate after Con's argument was removed) no arguments from either side, arguments are tied. Same for S/G. And Pro DID use a source, even it was to call out plagiarism, so that point goes to him.

Reasons for voting decision: I don't believe that Con should have plagiarized, obviously, so conduct went to Pro. However, pro did not argue or present a case, furthermore, the way he went about pointing out and publicizing his opponent's folly was somewhat obnoxious and childish. He should have done so in a more respectable way, it had an air of "I'm telling on you!" and that was annoying to me.
