My opponent has somehow accepted this debate without my permission and forfeits the debate. Even if that portion is overlooked, he posted an argument in Round 1 which breaks teh structure of the debate resulting in his forfeiture.

Con

No- you issued this challenge to me, and that was only my opening statement. Please give real argument.

My opponent is blatantly lying here. I reopened this in the challenges after the person I initially challenged this to declined to accept the debate.

Con

REALLY- because, the challene was open for me, if you opened it up to whoever wants to accept that's your fault, your problem.

My opponent has broken the rules, simple as that. This results in an automatic forfeiture by my opponent. It's quite sad really as I was wanting the TPP debate to be a good one.

Hey lanaan, I;m really too uninformed to accept this debate. I just posted the other comment to say that I'd like to read the debate when it's over then form an opinion.

I don't know much about it, and have little time to do enough research. Hopefully I can learn something from this.
