Reasons for voting decision: Con played semantics losing conduct. Con assumed "somebody" or Somebody means somebody, which it does not, giving Pro grammar. And somebody definitely accepted the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Abusive resolutions open the door wide open for semantics, and Con took full advantage. Pro got caught off guard and never rebounded.

Reasons for voting decision: Con's point that somebody didn't fit when qualified as a proper noun could have been refuted had Pro actually verbalized the difference. However, when Con pointed out the difference between the meanings Pro merely responded by calling Con pedantic. However, starting a debate where you intend to win by default is abusive to say the least so his point seems moot.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had an easy defense, but failed to implement it. When BB diferentiated between "somebody" and "Somebody" (arguing that the "Somebody" was a proper noun), Pro could have (and should have) stated that the "S" was capitalized because it was the start of a sentence, and it was clarified in their R1 when they wrote it as "somebody" in the middle of the sentence.
