DDO Win/Loss Record is Detrimental

Chaosism
Zaradi

Firstly, some participants will accept a debate challenge because they spot a technicality in the wording of the instigator, and then exploit that in order to add another victory to their record, thus, defeatin...

WillYouMarryMe

Just going to note, this is my first argument over the web. I will stand as pro. Con can choose the topic. Rules: It cannot be a topic that is impossible to argue. No trolls. That's not gonna fly here. Cannot be anything that is gender biased, since arguments like that never seem to end. You have 8000 characters to make your argument. There are 4 rounds. (Please don't take offense to this, it's my catchphrase...) May the best douchebag win....
