Is this debate really that pointless? That word is really subjective you know, certainly there are better things I could be doing with my time but that doesn't mean this debate has no benefits.

For one it is increasing internet traffic on this website, thus making the advertisers like it more, becasue me and my opponent are both devoting time to this, thus making this website more vaulble to the owners and perhaps it will help bring about more features to this website.

Secondly I am able to practice my grammar, debating, wording, spelling, and typing skills while engaging in this debate, for in this age of the computer and free speech can be nothing but an asset.

All in all isn't it evident that there is purpose and reason to engage in this activity? I have actually spent little time or electricity on this and yet am yielding a variety of benefits both for debate.org and my own person. Resolved, this debate is not pointless.

Pro

of course this debate is pointless that is the main reason a person like me would accept the challenge i believe in arguing for absolutely no reason at all

I voted against batman because frankly, he didn't have an argument. He never proved anything, and sounded really dumb when arguing.

Besides that, I'm pretty sure he's a spammer, and so would vote against him on principle.
