Con

The video site known as You Tube can not be helpful. My opponent has sited no sources and examples so I will be taking it that he made his points up. If he had not though, his teachers blocking it only makes more sense. If a website is not helpful and distracts students then it is evident it can do no good. Videos like Nyan Cat 10 hours and Side of salt videos are only distracting and do no help. Even something informative is only doing it with opinions and that can lead to misjudgment and harm.

For the reasons that my opponent lacks sources, contradicts himself, and the evidence stated above, I respectfully ask for a vote in the negative ballet. Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Obviously YouTube can be helpful so I agree with Pro before and after this debate. However, his/her inability to add sources or capitalize correctly/and use punctuation gives 3 points to Con. Conduct is tied. Argument for Eyelessjack1 is good, if only he had explained it further. However disagreeable Con's is, he brings up distracting videos that can have a negative effect. Victory for Con, even if he/she is wrong
