The current winner of the above debate is winning because of vote abuse. There is a vote bomber and the current winner purposefully changed his original vote to put himself ahead.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown

I dunno about that.

Poetry is pretty subjective. In different ways, both are superior, at least through my interpretation.

From my view their spelling and grammar are equal in mistakes, and neither exhibited poor conduct. Yet there is a default 7.

Different could interpret this differently. To different people, different mistakes are more egregious errors than others.

and neither exhibited poor conduct. Yet there is a default 7.

I don't see the purpose of making an entire over one vote. It would appear (through profile comments and a debate) that the 7-voter is a friend.

Don't get me wrong. Such voting behavior is bad. Still, I can still she how the debate could go either way.

I don't have any objective way of confirming this but when the debate was over both participants gave themselves points for arguments and a tie in everything else. A few days later Con is winning by 1 point. The next day Pro is ahead because he changed his vote.

Then take it up with the debaters. Presently, only one point is the difference between how each of the debaters voted for themselves.

Hardly evil enough to warrant a thread.

This isn't the only time he's done this. He votebombed almost all of his debates, the fact that this usually didn't effect the outcomes of those debates really doesn't matter and he did the exact same thing he's doing to Con to me.

Please don't let the votebomber win because of vote abuse and votebombing.

I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.
