The people in this debate http://www.debate.org... voted me down simple becuase they don't like my views on controversial issues.
Certain members of this site left comments such as:

"I hope that when this gets to a vote people will ignore the fact that the burden of proof falls on Pro due to your pathetic contribution."

tell these people the point of voting on debate.org is to vote on the debate, this isn't a popularity contest

I wouldn't agree with PRO's position, but he did have a much better, a well-thought out, and overall effective argument compared to your one to two sentence responses, ReganFan. I don't see any real evidence of vote-bombing either. Before my vote, PRO had 12 votes (with mine, it jumps to 17), and usually pure vote-bombing goes +7, +7, etc.

Maybe your argument was just that bad.

First off, "the people" is 2 people, and glancing at the comments, I instantly saw more than 2 people, so there are still voters who have read your debate. Besides that, in my opinion, you did lose the debate. After posting this, I'll go vote and leave an RFD. But in a nutshell (at least what I think I'm going to say) you lost because you never provide offense, only defense. You never make a case, and feebly attempt to attack his.

It wasn't my job to provide a defense, all his points were invalid because he just expected us to take his word for it. All he said he did better on a standardized test after is marijuana use then he did before but he provided no evidence to back this claim up.

You lost the debate because you failed to debate. You wasted a debate that could have been taken up by someone worthwhile, you wasted your opponents time and the time of anyone unlucky to have read the debate.

Your R1 was a single sentence.
R2 was two sentences.

In R3 you really excelled yourself, throwing yourself with wild abandon into the matter... and posted three sentences.

I stand by the quote!
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.

ROFL

Looking through your debates, you provide little to no real reasoning on any position, and only mock other debaters calling them "liberals" as if it were some synonym for "heathen"

If anyone has to, YOU should grow up.
