It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

'Nuff said.

Check out the rest of my losses, as well. Many of them are similar.

Seems you got vote bombed up just as much as draxxt - no arguments were made by either, best you should hope for is conduct votes.

Actually, I provided an argument in Round 4. Techincally, though, as I showed up, and my opponent did not, I am the default winner.

I was winning all four of those debates until theLwerd got banned and I was bombed with guilt by association.

Under what rules? Granted this is the usual case for most people, there is no set rules that say we must vote for you if your opponent failed to provide an argument for a couple rounds.

And if you believe you must get 7 points automatically for it, then you have another thing coming.

Really? Genes fat rolls as supporting info, and I'm winning by 1 point. Seriously.

And I would appreciate some people looking it over, not saying its votebombing at all, I would just appreciate some criticism/reasons for decision before the time runs out. There have only been 2 votes

However, there is much less justification in voting for my opponent.

And if you believe you must get 7 points automatically for it, then you have another thing coming.
I gave myself three points for arguments (I had one, he had none), two points for sources (I sourced the provided SC cases in my argument, while my opponent did not), and one point for conduct (my opponent forfeited). I would not be surprised if someone only gave me the conduct vote. However, I would be surprised by a 7-point vote for PRO, had I not ever been vote-bombed before.

People really need to get over this "votebombing" sh-t. As long as you think you did a better job, then why do you need to be validated by the people who vote? It's almost as if everyone's perception of their own skills at arguing is contingent on how people vote. This "votebombing" is utter nonsense.
