This is something else I have received questions about, and one I will address. This goes back into an older thread I posted about easy ways to win debates.

This is probably the best and most convenient way to snipe down a debate, even from some experienced members who are not paying attention.

Check the resolutions and exploit them

(1)

(x) is the hardest (z)
(x) is the best (z)
(x) is harder than (y)

All you have to do to win this is show that (y) is just as hard as (x). (y) can be any infinite number of applicable topics. If you are able to show that (y) or any topic relevant to the debate is just as hard as (x) you win. You do not even have to show it is harder, but just that it requires the same amount of effort.

(2)

(x) exists

This often comes into play with God or aliens. You will see these debates pop up from time to time. To win just simply tell them they have to prove this beyond doubt. This is not an argument of possibilities and probability, but of certainty. If they can provide no empirical evidence to support their claim, they lose.

(3)

(x) is immoral

Appeal to relative morality and dance in circles the entire debate.

(4)

Troll the balls off them if you find yourself in a sticky situation

You will win debates that you have no reason winning, if you can provide logic to support your arguments. Leave your opponent flabergasted and half the time they will not know how to refute it.

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

(5)

Post sexy pictures of yourself as a contention

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

NOT REALLY DO NOT DO THIS. IMABENCH WILL STALK YOU

These are just some examples but you can find loopholes in resolutions all the time, even from some more experienced members. Exploit them for an easy shot to the dome.

Or so what Stalin does:

Accept every single debate that was created by a noob and assume they'll forfeit every round so you can win by concession.

The alternative verb: To kill 60 million people. Know the difference. It change the entire meaning of the sentence, "I just STALINed."

This is obviously an offshoot of Crypto's disdain for RoyLatham having been unseated from top of the Leaderboard.

Crypto is so obviously of that delusional, Christian conservative mindset, that it would be a crime not to point him out to the intellectual community.

....and it's also hilarious how uptight he is over Mikal's taking top of HoF, lol.

Yes, but his anguish as regards Mikal taking HoF has been evident across a few threads now. His reproaching STALIN here is clearly but an attempt to mitigate some of that stress he's feeling, equating Mikal with STALIN in terms of debating skills, not taking on Mikal himself because of Mikal's high standing. Crypto's been known to bash on "noobs" too. Programming, comfortable place, etc.

There was one particularly hilarious post, a simple but oh so emotional "Okay" in response to Bullish' thread, I nearly died laughing.

The End is Nigh! RoyLatham has been usurped, that noble man who was Con on such things as gay marriage, and politically conservative in general. Now comes the Thousand Years Darkness, the Reign of Mikal!

Or so what Stalin does:

Accept every single debate that was created by a noob and assume they'll forfeit every round so you can win by concession.

I laughed because this is the truth, but we love STALIN <3

no we don't

Awww, why not? Isn't his spamming hilarious?

No. he is a blotch on the integrity of this site.

This is obviously an offshoot of Crypto's disdain for RoyLatham having been unseated from top of the Leaderboard.

Crypto thinks you're a blotch on the integrity of the site, Mikal. It's okay though, he's stupid as f*ck. "Mikal took HoF, it's the apocalypse!!" lmao

Isn't Crypto talking about STALIN?

Yes, but his anguish as regards Mikal taking HoF has been evident across a few threads now. His reproaching STALIN here is clearly but an attempt to mitigate some of that stress he's feeling, equating Mikal with STALIN in terms of debating skills, not taking on Mikal himself because of Mikal's high standing. Crypto's been known to bash on "noobs" too. Programming, comfortable place, etc.

There was one particularly hilarious post, a simple but oh so emotional "Okay" in response to Bullish' thread, I nearly died laughing.
