I recently accepted a debate that I realized I probably won't have time to participate in after all (I overestimated my free time). In the past, forfeiting the first round cancelled the entire debate. I'm not sure if that's still the case. If not, is there a way I can forfeit the debate without penalty?

Which "debate" are you referring to?

Pretty sure that still works, but if it doesn't I don't think there's any other way.

I don't see any active debates on her profile other than the one with me.

That still does it, I did that just last week.

If you click on someone's debate total, you see debates that they have accepted but have yet to argue in.

He doesn't need or deserve an explanation. It's absolutely none of his business which debate I'm referring to. If he can figure it out on his own, good for him. If not, oh well. Why he cares is beyond me...

Ok, I've seen this same question three times all of a sudden.

All you need to do is report the debate and have the mod delete it.

Both of the debaters have to agree to it, otherwise it won't be deleted.

No, it just needs to be a spam debate.

I reported one of my own spam debates awhile back(it wasn't one I lost) and it was removed.
