First of all no we will NOT use that definition

Zombie- A reanimated corpse that is infected by a blood transmission and is killed and reanimated by a VIRUS.

Okay, I really, really, really, really, REALLY hate how people think that if they post the definition first, their definition is automatically correct. Absolute bullsh1t. You CAN challenge definitions, offer counter definitions, as well as reasons why your definition is to be preferred or is more indicitave of the truth.

Reasons for voting decision: Zaradi has the right idea, either side has every right to challenge a definition, to make a debate fair. I don't consider Pro to be a troll in this instance because he is technically instigating a definitions debate.

Reasons for voting decision: There isn't a way to vote. Neither side explains why their definition is better or should be preferred, and since con's C1 is hingent on his definition being the better one, I can't weigh it since I don't have a clear definition to use. I literally cannot judge the round without arbitrarily choosing one definition over the other, which is too judge interventionist for me.
