Don't advertise your debates. You need to use url links and sources in your debate...

I think y'all should've hashed out rules before you started the debate. He shouldn't have given a long list of rules in the first round because it wasn't his debate. He should've made sure you agreed to them before accepting.

And you shouldn't have added the rule that arguments must be in syllogisms in your opening. If that was going to be a rule, you should've put that in round 1 so your opponent could know it before accepting.
