Con

I accept.

The burden of proof is on PRO, who is making a positive claim to the effect that bananas are "funnier looking" than apples. This means that he must prove that bananas look funnier than apples, or X > Y, whereas I must only prevent him from doing this. In other words, if it is possible by the end of this debate that apples are funnier looking than bananas, or that they're equally funny looking, or that we don't know which are funnier looking, you vote CON by default.

PRO doesn't offer a single positive argument, other than the point out his opinion that bananas look funnier. He needed to defend an objective statement to the effect that one looks funnier than the other, but doesn't explain to us how we can evaluate objectively which looks funnier, so this boils down to nothing more than a subjective judgment.

Therefore, vote CON.

>Reported Vote: SeventhProfessor // Moderator action taken: removed<

4 points to Pro (conduct, S&G, sources). RFD: "Reasons for voting decision: Pro provided an admittedly weak argument, but Con simply referred to it as an opinion without explaining why. Args are tied. Con referred to Pro as "he", even though Pro's gender is unspecified. This assumption leads to me giving conduct to Pro. Con's statement "other than the point out his opinion that bananas look funnier" makes no sense. Since he dropped the "ab" in "about", s/g to pro. Pro was able to provide a source for his argument, while Con provided none. Sources to Pro."

*Reason for removal.* All the point justifications in this RFD blow things way out of proportion. Con made a *single* spelling error, which is not a sufficient reason to award S&G to Pro. Pro posted a picture of banana, which is the "source" Pro used; posting a picture of a banana is hardly a sufficient reason to award someone "more reliable sources." And while debaters should endeavor to call their opponent by the correct gender, mistakenly doing so one time seems like a made up reason for awarding conduct. Particularly when SeventhProfessor also doesn't know Pro's gender, so he has no way of knowing whether Pro would be offended.
