The debate is just a way to express the problem. Why is that even an issue?

Because 1) you're advertising your debate, and 2) if you wanted to discuss the problem then you type out the actual problem for people to give their opinion on it. Posting a link to an actual debate about it isn't expressing the problem, it's advertising.

Since when can't 'advertising' express vital information? I'd be 'advertising' an idea if I just wrote it out. Are you going to get pissy because I didn't copy and paste? I didn't want to do that so you could comment on the debate, read the arguments against, and vote if you want to. I don't see the way I advertised it as some how biased towards me in terms of voting, so that's an invalid point. Sorry, but I don't feel bad at all.

Not what I'm arguing.... Advertising is just really bad conduct, especially for noobs, to use to bring attention to their debates

You technically did copy paste, you were just so lazy that you only pasted a link to the debte you were having about it.

Exactly, that's advertising.

No dumbass that's not what I'm saying here. If your debating about something then chances are you've already made up your mind about it, meaning that if you ask a question about an issue and only give a link to a debate you're having where you've already made up your mind about the issue, then you're not trying to start a discussion, you're just trying to fish for votes on your half assed debate

Do you have any evidence to suggest I was trying to fish for votes as opposed to trying to advertise an idea that I want implemented? I am using the debate because it's a good place to start if people want to hear the sides of the issue. I also posted the issue under opinions.

The evidence that your trying to fish for votes is that youre advertising the living sh*t out of your own debate about it where your arguments arent even that good to begin with.

Yeah, as "Should DDO change the 'man made global warming exists' big issue prompt to 'man-made global warming exists'"

Are you really going to talk about grammar?

Good etiquette would have you put the subject in the title of the thread.

Really bad etiquette would have not explain what the thread is about in the title, and then continue not explaining in the opening post.

I'm personally more bugged by the fact that this flaw is far from obvious, and in fact requires not only a lot of stinginess, but you have to look for it very specifically.

What I said there is actually comprehensible and sounds like something that would be said by someone who can read above a first grade level, unlike what you normally post.....

Also I dont try to discredit people smarter then me by pointing out they are a theist. There must be hundreds of theists on this site who can think more rationally then you can.

Getting a bit off topic, but what do you guys think of this debate? (it's done by Dylan, seeking for a cheap win).

http://www.debate.org...

Especially the comments. Like omfg... Can't see the obvious of what I am trying to say, and probably deliberately misinterpreting my words.

It was actually just a joke debate, not a debate to get a win. I have no way of proving that, but then again, I don't care :)
