i have delated my debate because i went to HARVARD UNIVERSITY for a tournament and some kid from another school (several actually) had stolen my cases directly from this sight.... thanks alot.
Koopin

Con

Thank you for starting this debate.

My opponent has the burden of proof. He must prove that he went to Harvard University for a tournament. He must also prove that several kids from another school stole his case directly from this "sight" not site.

Thank you.

Ok I am sorry for adressing you as idiotic. But it is not a topic. I deleted the argument that I origionally had on this site so that no one else could use my case. If i knew how to delete all together this would not be on here. i will not debate you about this, so sorry for your inconvinence.

I am seriously thinking of uploading a total sh## case now and see what happens to the poor souls that can not write their OWN cases. Thanks for the advice, I will start running old topics or completely new to the curcuit topics.

And that's going to happen anytime you post your cases on a site subject to google searches (so, yeah...basically all of them). All an idiot has to do is search for the resolution and DDO is usually on the first page, so it's an obvious danger. This is why I've learned to run past topics for skill building only or to write a totally sh*t case just for DDO so I can block or whatever.

Thats my problem with this site.... I've have my case stolen several times.

Obviously I voted CON. PRO never made an argument. (Sorry, PRO, that you're case was stolen. I've had that happen to me.)

To clarify, though, PRO only has the burden to prove the resolution true. CON doesn't win the debate by arguing that PRO's trip to Harvard is unverifiable, because it has nothing to do with the resolution.
