The "Start Three Debates" requirement for voting is too much verification.
Debate Rounds (1)
How will they lose potential debaters? They are making it so debating is required before full access to all of the site's features, certainly not discouraging debating. Also, it gives all voters debate experience, so they know how annoying spamming and cheating is. Although it does lead some people to make one round debates in an effort to cheat the system, but that's nearly unavoidable.
"This requirement is likely to spawn stupid debate topics from people like me who just want to be able to vote before they forget about a debate, or to turn them away from this site. I am interested to hear someone else's take on this, so please only respond if you are serious."
Yes, people do start small debates in order to verify faster, but if they're about dumb topics they are reported. While this is also most likely one of these, it's about an interesting topic.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made a whole case... And Con refuted everything. Because it only had one round, Pro couldn't refute Con's arguments... Single round debates are almost impossible to win.
