The topic is silence is golden. 3 rounds, I will let my opponent start.
knick-knack

Con

Silence is golden

I will assume that this means "being quiet is great" like the classic saying usually means.

I am against the resolution for the reason of-

If there is no human communication, speaking to one another, there is no progression of society.

Tied?

What are you talking about?
Posted by CoronerPerry 8 years ago
CoronerPerry
no, I simply wanted to take a different approach of a debate. I have this same topic in a different form, it is debate number 5476.

anyway, the only rules to debate.org is that you need to be proper. including, no profanity, being polite, etc...

acting out a debate just sounded like a good thing to try.

in all technicalities, we should be tied, because I debated by saying very little, and he debated by saying a lot.

I debate the side that silence IS golden.

he debates the side that silence ISN'T golden.

we both exhibited it correctly.

but yes, it was a dumb idea. I admit it.

You guys are uptight. I do crap like this because I'm constantly debating world topics n my classes. I get bored, and do stuff to give me a break from all that. You people need to chill. It's a free site. You DON'T need to read it. If you want a serious debate, then somebody challenge me to whatever. I will give you a debate!

yea, we shouldn't use a test just to use a debate site. I think the fact that no one has voted for him is enough for him to learn from.

We need to have a debate training camp. Or a mandatory test to enter the site. To get rid of some of these stupid debates.
