Pro

I would prefer if someone else that is new to DBO participates. My main purpose to get to being allowed to vote.... This was set up to be as fast as possible.

By making users go through 3 debates, they make it so voting is allowed only for those that have participate in debates. What if I don't want to debate? Its unfair to say everyone here is to debate, those like me might just be here to read others views and see others debate.

The phone requirement is a good enough limit.

Con

I accept and wish to argue that requiring users to debate 3 times before voting is a benefit to the website.

First, Pro has created a short, limited 500 character debate (most likely to satisfy is debate requirements to vote on further debates.

I will indulge you.

The biggest, and most likely only reason this requirement is in place, is to prevent users from creating multiple accounts and voting on their own debates. Ina way to 'boost' your Win %. This is a reasonable request to verify users

Based on my character limit, I could not refute the point you had made. "Its unfair to say everyone here is to debate, those like me might just be here to read others views and see others debate."

you are allowed to see and view others debates without debating. You have not earned the right to vote on them by not debating yourself.

Thanks for joining in.

I really just wanted to make this fast. I am more interested in participating in others debates than creating new ones. Also the restrictions others make debates for new people like me tougher.

I get why they did it, I just think the cellphone confirmation is enough.
