This debate is reserved for Tough. If anyone else accepts, they lose.

I'm for the idea that trolls should be temporarily banned from this site. I will be setting up my own criteria for "temporarily banning" them.

Temporary ban for trolling: 5 days.

Since "troll" is a slang term, we will be using the Urban Dictionary for terms like this.

Troll-"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument."

Rules: No kritiks
No trolling
Round 1 is Acceptance
Do not get upset

Sorry, didn't mean to accept this. I may as well do it now that I have though because there is no going back and I can't reverse the past.
I believe that you need to lighten up. Fun never hurt anyone. If you don't like trollers then don't accept their debates. The world doesn't have to be so serious all the time. I myself agree that they can be annoying sometimes but I mean if you don't like it stop using the website. If you don't like it don't read the debate. If you don't lien it just ignore it. I also agree that it is sad however let people, do what they want, if they get banned then that's their problem let them suffer the consequences. It's good to have a little fun here and there. Lighten up.

Don't tell me to lighten up. This is my personal opinion. You are the one who should, as you can't tell me I should tolerate people getting angry with me. No need to be defensive here, it's my opinion.

Trollers can accept our debates too, and it gets annoying.

You have conceded, because you were never supposed to accep.t

Meh, I don't feel I have the energy to debate this pointless topic 😂

"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument."

I disagree with that definition. That fits the seed metaphor to divide and conquer, not necessarily a trolling tactic. Dissent and internal conflict are psychological tactics used to create a rift inside one party. Trolling is just for the sake of personal amusement but lately the art's been besmirched and blocking is far easier than taking the bait.

1. You *can* challenge someone to debate. 2. Trolls *do* get banned by Airmax1227 for a week or more dependent on the damage. Just ask Airmax to ban them and ask Imabench cause his been banned alot 3. You should've chosen Imabench cause he will officially stop debating after a few more debates.

You should've just challenged Tough if that's the only person you want to debate.

I love the hall monitor types who try to control everything on a dime-a-dozen forum. They are often the same neighbors and citizens who rat you out for petty civil code violations.
