This is a term I've been encountering lately, and I've just accepted a debate with someone who said his opponent must not "kritik" his arguments. What on earth does this word mean?

Decently accurate (and humerus) start to understanding what a K is. Knowing you, you're not going to have any problems violating that rule.

For something a little more detailed and in depth, you can always look to Wikipedia:

Simply put, though, a Kritik is a non-unique disadvantage. In case you don't know what non-unique means, it means that it applies to both cases presented by Pro and Con, and commonly applies to status quo as well. It follows along these lines: Pro/Con furthers some harm through their case, doing so causes X, Y, and Z impacts, we should instead pursue some alternative that doesn't bite the Kritik, and judges should vote on this before determining if Pro/Con's case is actually net beneficial.

Okay, thanks. This was the only site I've seen it on, so I didn't think it'd be on a site like Wikipedia or Urban Dictionary.
