This website is rather pointless. Anyone can accept this, any style of argumenting, and i don't really care about trolls because my last argument is rather hypocritical about that.
Edmeister

Con

You clearly don't believe the site is pointless since you have not only proceeded to build an argument but actually created a debate forum. Since any subject is debatable it is in fact NOT pointless. Your initial argument is null.

The concept of the website itself is rather pointless. You can argue in real life, and you would have a better experience, and it would show your true knowledge about facts and subjects, rather than having a new tab ready for Google.
Also, the initial argument was an introduction to the Debate, as i didn't state any clear facts other than the title, making your rebuttal pointless.

Con

Although a debate in real life is more dynamic, a debate on this site allows for clear rules of debate with the added benefit that there is ample time and resources to research your material and present your case. Besides, debaters have the chance to present their rebuttal clearheaded and as close to real-time as possible. Unlike scientific papers or online essays (or articles) which can take a long time between debaters, this site lets you debate anyone who challenges anyone else in fast-mode if you will.

The initial statement seemed to be your entire argument. But if you have more to add, please, I am curious.

It provides ample time, but that's the problem. Debates are meant to show one's knowledge about a certain subject or many subjects. If you're given the extra time, as a result you'll collect information that is not of your own thoughts. For example with this debate. I would have had time to research many articles about the cons of Debate.org and articulate many rebuttals in the 72 hours that i gave.
That wouldn't have been of my own knowledge and knowing and would have been destroying the whole point of the website, which can be exploited easily making it pointless.

The initial statement was a base statement that consisted of the title, making your assumption of it being a base argument rather ridiculous.

Duh, it's pointless, but so are websites just like Facebook or Instagram. It doesn't have a real purpose it's just for fun.
