"It remains a disgrace to this site that CON can win a debate like this."

Just look at these debates. My opponent conceded at least one round in the last four. In the second, third, and fifth debates, my opponent did not even understand the resolution. In the fourth debate, my opponent conceded to be wrong. In the first debate, my opponent didn't even refute an argument that he was wrong. My grammar consistently outdid my opponents' in every debate.

And yet, I lost two, I'm decently winning another, and the other two I'm losing, and probably doing to lose.

This is most definitely a disgrace to this site.

Opinions?

On 3-5 I agree. But 1 and 2 are pretty fair to me. I do not even know how you could possibly complain about 1 and 2. Also, I wouldn't call 3-5 a disgrace to the site, but more like a flaw.

Also, you said "My opponent conceded at least one round in the last four."
-I was debate #2 on your list. I never conceded a round. Nice try though.

Oh. Sorry. I meant the last three.
It is a disgrace if a debater can epicly fail and still win.

Anyways, on 1, there is no possible way that PRO can win the grammar vote, and on 2, PRO did not even meet his own burden of proof.

Disgrace.

No, those are great. AS LONG AS PEOPLE REALIZE THAT HE IS NOT IN IRAQ!!!!!
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Those debates are designed for fun, and the voting is still serious.

On the other debates, much of the voting is a disgrace.

I do agree that 1 and 2 could have gone either way and that 2 through 5 should have all been blowouts for mongeese.

Life isn't fair. There are plenty of debates that I am bitter about as well.

Yeah, and they completely ruin the leaderboard.

I should have something around a 70% win ratio right now.

I don't even have that. It ain't gonna happen.
