Let's test it out.
Zhonginator

Con

Obviously, Con doesn't always win the debate. Pro's case could be stronger and more convincing. However, in a lot of instances, con does win. Always means every time. This isn't true. Take Subutai's debate with Kryptic.

Subutai, who was pro won. Therefore Con doesn't always win a debate.
Although in this case, I might win.

Actually, my real point lies in my first comment. I have designed this debate as a paradox. Whatever the result, I win.

Your semantics doesn't work because you said thr con always wins the debates.

This means every single debate in ddo was won by the con

You are now caught in my word web! Yes! You accepted this debate without seeing the consequences.
Now, since you are con, you say that pro always wins debate but if you win in this debate, my argument becomes correct and I am the winner. However if I win, that's all I want.

Reasons for voting decision: Con references a debate where a Pro won, which to me makes both the more convincing argument as well as provides a reliable source. Con may not always win the debate but he certainly won my vote on this debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Con shows that "Con" has lost before; citing Subutai's debate, this negates the resolution because in order for "always" to hold true it needs to be true every time. It wasn't true that one time; thus resolution negated. Con wins

Reasons for voting decision: Do Cons ALWAYS win? Pro had to show that Cons ALWAYS win to win this debate. However, for Con to win this debate, it was enough to show that at least in one debate Con has lost or tied a debate which would eventually prove that Cons don't ALWAYS win. Pro didn't provide any argument to prove his claim. Con showed a debate where Pro won the debate i.e., Con lost the debate which automatically refutes the claim that Cons ALWAYS win. =>A goes to Con!
