Anyone who could possibly deny this would be crazy. One can simply look at the URL on their address bar and see none other than "debate.org" itself. In fact, you ought to be able to realize it just by looking at your screen or the logo at the very corner of it.

If there is anyone out there who disagrees with this, speak now. Enlighten me on how this could even possibly not be so.

I thank my opponent for instigating this debate and wish him the best of luck.

This is not debate.org.

"Anyone who could possibly deny this would be crazy. One can simply look at the URL on their address bar and see none other than "debate.org" itself. In fact, you ought to be able to realize it just by looking at your screen or the logo at the very corner of it."

Yes I agree in the top left hand corner it says explicitly "Debate.org". However, the fact of the matter is, the URL begs to differ. The URL is essentially the portal in which to travel to a website. Heres the thing, the informal name of this website is Debate.org. The formal name is "http://www.debate.org...;

As we can see, we are using "http://www.debate.org...; and not just debate.org.

I thank you for your time. Please vote CON as we are not using debate.org but rather "http://www.debate.org...;

It's pretty common to refer to websites by what comes after the "http://www." part. I'm not sure why this comes as a surprise to you.

Even still, the site you are using right now is called "Debate.org." Is it not?

I can't think of any reason why you would deny this.

Also, I'm not sure if you realized. But, the hyperlinks you provided all go to 404 page.

I apologize for the faulty links. I guess that's just protecting my privacy.

The fact of the matter is, you simply say when you refer to websites you leave out the "http://www." part and just call it the antecedent. Not only does this contradict your argument, bu also proves me right.

1) Leaving out the "http;//www." part makes it debate.org.

Wrong. By leaving that out, you get "debate.org/" the slash is present yet still. The fact of the matter is, even if you leave it out, you still don't have debate.org.

2) Referring to a website and using (as the resolution states) a website are two different things

You say that when referring to this website, one calls it, debate.org. The fact of the matter is, your resolution says not what we refer to it as but merely what website we are using, and the website we are using is http://www.debate.org...

Thank you for your time, Please vote CON

Con, you're not using the URL of this particular page but rather using debate.org's host server. Plus, if Pro is referring to the NAME of the site (which is Debate.org) then you lose. But let's see what he has to say :p
