Thank you, juverina, for instigating what I am sure will be an enthralling debate.


My duty, as Pro, is to affirm that fans are indeed acting negatively because of Zayn Malik leaving One Direction (1D). I will open with a brief argument, and I will elaborate and construct additional arguments where necessary, in later rounds.


A1: Clear evidence of fans acting negatively because of Zayn leaving 1D

From Popcrush.com, there is clear evidence which affirms the resolution [1]. From the source, there are a couple of Tiwtter comments that are negative and a result of Zayn Malik leaving ID; see for yourself:




For example, the first tweet is:

1) Directed at Zayn

2) Negative (calls him heartless)
3) Is a result of Zayn leaving 1D

Therefore, we have a fan acting negatively because Zayn left 1D


Now, as you may note, the resolution pertains to "fans" (as opposed to a fan), so the second tweet should suffice for the resolution affirmation. However, just to be sure, I will provide another source. According to Hollywoodlife.com, there are plenty more tweets that are "acting negatively" in regards to Zayn. Have a look [2]:




For example, have a look at the last tweet.

1) She is "angry" (i.e. being negative)
2) She is reacting to Zayn because he left 1D


So, I have affirmed the resolution by providing multiple examples which show "fans acting negatively because of zayn malik leaving 1d".

Thank you, juverina.


I do not accept the resolution change. The resolution is:


fans acting negatively because of zayn malik leaving 1d

NOT

fans acting negatively because of zayn malik leaving 1d is fine


My opponent has, unfairly, changed the resolution mid-debate. This is known as moving the goalposts, which is a logical fallacy [1]. It is a fallacy in this context because Con's counter-argument only has merit under this changed resolution, not with the one we are arguing under. Hence, assuming that Con's counter-argument works for both resolutions assumes alignment where none exists -- the "is fine" clause makes the two resolutions unequal. To put it simply, my opponent has changed the resolution.

Since my opponent's counter-argument is a fallacy, my arguments are to be extended.

Funny, I'm sure of the exact opposite.

Reasons for voting decision: FF, sources were only used by Pro. And Pro was the only one who made any arguments, which were not refuted by Con, who tried to change the resolution halfway through the debate, but both sides have to agree for this to happen.

Reasons for voting decision: (1). Conduct: FF. => Pro's win. (2). S&G: major spelling errors from Con, such as "zayn malik"! => Pro's win. (3). Arguments: there has been a disagreement about the content of the resolution between Con & Po, on whether it's a factual or moral statement. Since Con has failed to contest Pro's stance on the content of the resolution, it shall thus be considered a factual statement. That been said, Pro has demonstrated that some fans were acting negatively towards the departure of Zayn Malik from 1D, which Con has not refuted. => Pro's win. (4). Sources: Con provided none. => Pro's win.
