My opponent put a YouTube video over 1h:50m long. does this count as an argument?
Am I supposed to watch it?
It certainly is way over the character limit.

3 words you should put in your debate... NO VIDEO LINKS

Putting a long youtube video as an argument is like telling your opponent to go read a book on the subject. Its evasive and kinda lazy. If I were voting, I would not count it.
By the way, can I see the debate?

It would not be deemed acceptable to supply a link that would take that long to read, so I'd say not. I reckon the voters would agree with that?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

It was a terrible debate I had no formal debating experience. so it's kind of unorganized, messy, and poorly worded.

I agree with illegalcombatant and plan to use that phrase in the future. Honestly, I got a debate right now where the other guy posted a bunch. Sorry but I'm not going to watch your video or accept it as evidence. I didn't think it would be possible for a generation to be lazier than the MTV generation, but I digress.

Just write 'NO VIDEO LINKS' as one of the rules in your future debates. But otherwise, the voters will either give you points for conduct or arguments if your opponent choses to do so, which is ridiculous (making you invest your time in another, tangent of the debate)...
