everyone, check this out.
http://www.debate.org...
This is my first political debate, and my opponent 16kadams said that he would allow "some" fooling around, so read the last contention of my second round argument. Then, in the comments for this debate, he said that this would cause me to lose. Can someone explain where I faulted? :/

I lol'd at the fact that our possible future president has not passed Grade 4 grammar school.

Fooling around doesn't mean go head on semantics. Especially after you read his second round. But no real harm done. He can just remake it.

I'm not even going to point out the irony in that statement.

Also, debates should retain the highest possible amount of S & G to make the readers be able to read them without wanting to bang their heads against a wall.

That is the only thing I am doing that is fooling around. The rest will be as serious as I can be.

I have no problem with you fooling around.

However, when the likes of 16k and Imabench are running for top positions and the majority of their debates are a sorry sight, then we must be worried.

Not to mention that one of them will likely be in the top position. However, you never know. A sky-pirate might appear out of somewhere and take the election by boat :). Hopefully.

It doesn't.

It just seems to me, and probably a lot of other people, that it would not be advisable to have members that either constantly troll debates or cannot put together a correct sentence to be having relations with Juggle.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."
