Adolescents are getting hurt from trying to imitate stunt videos from youtube.

I believe YouTube should not ban stunt videos. This is because of many reasons:
1. Why SHOULD YouTube ban stunt videos?
2. Why not ban other videos then?
3. There's no need of banning stunt videos.

About Pro's first argument, yes, I totally agree that adolescents are getting hurt from trying to imitate stunt videos. But then again, let's face it. It's clearly their fault they're trying out the videos. Okay, maybe there can be an age limit to videos. But banning them? No way. Nobody is forcing them to try out the videos. They're doing it with their own will.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's case is that youtube stunt videos are being imitated and causing harm in adolescents. Pro forfeits the next 4 rounds, so that's it. Con responds by pointing out the blame lies with the adolescents themselves who choose to attempt these stunts. Con suggests that maybe an age limit to videos might be better than an entire ban, because no one is forcing these kids to try these stunts. Both points by Con negate the need for a ban and even offer a solution that requires no ban. Pro can't respond b/c of the forfeits. Hence I vote arguments to Con. S&G was tied. There were no sources. Conduct to Con since Pro forfeited 4/5 rounds.
