Pro

This is a word battle where each person will post one word and the voters may decide who posted a better word.

There will be restrictions on the type of word you can use though.

Rules

1. The word must be appropriate and must not contain any extra meaning.

2. If the word has multiple meanings, then all of the meanings must be appropriate.

3. The characters of the word must be over 4.

4. The word must also be a word that the person already knows and not a word that he will learn later on.

5. Any Word that defies one of the rules shall be considered as a forfeited round. This is to prevent any unnecessary arguing over the opponents word.

6. If the word meets the rules then there may not any negative comments toward whatsoever.

7. The limit of characters shall be 15 to prevent overly large words that either me or my opponent may use.

8. To provide voters with their own chance to cast votes of their own opinions, no comments may be posted in the comments section that may influence the voters decision in any way.

This debate has two rounds because we will each post our one word in the second round.

Once again, I thank my opponent for accepting this debate and hope that she will enjoy this debate ^_^

I think pros opening arguments were very strong as he dished out the rules like a boss, however, he didnt have many sources but thats fine since Con failed to refute him adequatly. I think the final round was a bit reliant on sources due to the fact that there was more source than there was argument. Other than that, the quality of the arguments and their structure could use a little work. Statistics usually help...

"6. If the word meets the rules then there may not any negative comments toward whatsoever."

Bull.

"8. To provide voters with their own chance to cast votes of their own opinions, no comments may be posted in the comments section that may influence the voters decision in any way."

Horseradish.

I have a few negative comments about this stupid exercise in missing the point. These "post the oddest word" contests are pointless enough, but when circle and hexagon are the only words you two could come up with? That's just sad; no it's past sad, it's into "how-do-you-live-with-yourself" territory.

I'd vote, but I cannot give you two negative points

I'm pretty sure 'hexagon' isn't a non-existing word...
