Unfortunately, I couldn't post my constructive in another debate over this topic.
[ http://www.debate.org...;]
I've restarted the topic, if The_Debate_Czar is willing to accept it.

---

Rounds:
1st: Acceptance only.

2nd: Opening arguments only.
3rd: Both rebuttals and new arguments.
4th: Rebuttals only.
5th: Summaries only.

---

Furthermore, I ask that the Con not just attack Utilitarianism but provide another ethical theory that would be superior to Utilitarianism.

I accept the terms and look forward to finally starting this debate. It should be quite an interesting one...

Reasons for voting decision: Even though Pro should lose the conduct point for posting his argument outside of DDO, Con's full forfeit is just as bad and sort of negates it.
