What kind of person starts a debate and makes it impossible to accept? I believe it is only an arrogant, but cowardly sort.

Con

Is merely being selective proof of arrogance or cowardice? Doesn't a person have the right to prefer one debater over another for personal reasons?

According to Merriam-Webster, preference is "the act, fact, or principle of giving advantages to some over others".
Also in M-W, arrogance is "an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions".

Therefore, preference only becomes arrogant when it is based on assumption.

Also, aren't you being a little arrogant in generalizing selective debaters, with no evidence to back it up? The burden of proof is on you.

I am arrogant on the keypad, but willing to listen, eye to eye. Who here does that? Only the leaders.

Con

Whatever you say. Just don't insult any members of the community.

i think what is meant or at least the way I took it.......there is an abundance of debate topics such is
"People can't see Genius" that come off as pretentious, patronizing, moralizing, image crafting, my butthole doesn't stink narcissistic debate topic. You don't need proof and evidence and an outline of what the meaning of arrogant means to figure that one out.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro makes assertions but offers no premises. Both argued so poorly that I can't award points to either. On another note, people typically make debates impossible to accept to insure they get the best opponent possible.
