Con

I think graffiti is bad but what do you think
Koopin

Pro

I would like to thank my opponent.

Graffiti is not bad, people do it professionally. It is a forum of art.

I believe you are getting confused with vandalism.

Thank you, and I look forward to your response.
Debate Round No. 1
lukepa

Con

But what if someone did graffiti on your wall without your permission
Koopin

Pro

Yes, but that is an act of vandalism. You would be mad if someone threw tomatoes on your house, does this mean tomatoes are bad? No.

I look forward to your response.
Debate Round No. 2
lukepa

Con

Vandalism what ever, the point is you would not like in if you found graffiti on your wall.No.
Koopin

Pro

I would like to thank my opponent for posting his last argument. I wold also like to thank the audience for reading.

Sadly, my opponent has failed to properly attempt to refute my arguments. From what he is saying, everything could be bad including tomatoes. I would like to extend all arguments.

Remember, people use graffiti all the time as a form of art. It can be used for many different decorations, not just vandalism.

I urge the audience to vote PRO.

Thank you.

Reasons for voting decision: Con should perhaps have made the resolution "you would not like in if you found graffiti on your wall without your permission" if that was his only argument. Love the tomatoes rebuttal from Koopin. imo there is of course good grafitti and bad graffiti, whether or not it is vandalism seems a seperate issue to its artistic merit.

Reasons for voting decision: Koopin obviously won. But I give the spelling point to his opponent since Koopin misspelled form as forum in his first round.

Reasons for voting decision: Koopin has a point; graffiti is not necessarily the same thing as vandalism. I know professional graffiti artists who make their living painting graffiti murals for people who want them. Graffiti is an artform; when it is applied to someone's property without their permission, it's vandalism. Lukepa either didn't understand or didn't care about the distinction Koopin made, and so lost this debate.
