My opponent forfeited the final two rounds. They only had one sentence in the entire debate. Why do I need to wait 90 freaking days for this to have closure?

Unfortunately, yes. When accepting to participate in a debate it will usually bring you to a screen which tells you the time allotted for each round and the length of time that it will be open to voting. That is the screen that you truly accept the debate on with the options being either: Yes, I will debate this or No, I will not debate this. By clicking yes, the site is assuming that you are aware of the time allotted for voting since it was listed on the screen that you accepted the debate on.

I had to learn this the hard way too and now will only accept debates or challenges that have the 10 days voting period. If you won, then you won. It'll just take a little longer to have that win solidified instead of being up in the air. I wouldn't worry about it too much, just keep this unfortunate event in mind when accepting debates from this point on.
