Basically I thought it would be fun to debate this :)
This is kind of a fun debate. Don't take it to seriously

You cannot prove it. The only way you could possibly prove this is through a picture. The only pictures of me that people could access would be the ones I put as my profile picture. However, this picture is only 14.27 KB in size and it is 200x150 pixels in dimensions. This is not enough to be sure that the person depicted is gorgeous. You also can't know that the person you are debating is the same as the one in the picture.

Assuming you are the same person in the picture, I take the same stand as I did before.
Can we try to tie this? Possibly...

Okay okay lol

By the way, I gotta give it to ya, with that assumption your argument is irrefutable lmao

Voters out there, please try to keep this a tie. If it's already tied, don't vote.

Somehow the word "method" escaped my last comment and ran off into the wild.

There are a limitless number of reasons as to why individuals would use pictures that don't accurately depict themselves. One of the most common reasons is simply insecurity. An individual may be insecure about their appearance in real life and may see an online forum as a means of dispelling this insecurity as people will generally (as is the case here) assume that the individual in the user's avatar is an accurate depiction of the individual.

In fact, inaccurate avatar portraits are commonly used on online dating websites by individuals with some kind of deceptive agenda.

Nevertheless, this is all besides the point. The fact of the matter is that the pro insinuated that the con was a ridiculously gorgeous person. Her resoluton makes no mention of this merely being the case for the con's avatar, thus the con's arguments are valid.

Was this some elaborate (or not-so-elaborate) of hitting on dalzuga?

however we can assume that the pros argument can be correct because why would someone put a pic of someone else on their profile. wouldnt u think that most people would put a pic of themselves up unless for some reason they were trying to embarass someone which if that is the case. then they must not have a life of their own to live.

Actually, the con's argument is correct. The pro has no way of proving that the con is actually the person in the picture. By the way, the resolution doesn't specifically warrant an assumption, so the con wins (only because the pro didn't present an actual argument).
