I noticed that there was a side of a debate called Pro.

I was very concerned about this because I didn't understand why me, being a noob, was offered to be a Pro already. I also noticed that the other side was named 'Con' and that 'Con' means to trick.

Then I sat and thought, If I were a pro, I wouldn't go on the Pro side because I would con my opponent! :)

On the other hand, if you choose 'Pro' as a noob, you are actually the con and the opponent is the conned!

What is the meaning of it?

Pro means "for," and Con means "against."

Pro is for the topic, Con argues against the topic.

Are you a Pro trying to Con me?

I caught that after the first post. I mean, I gave him the benefit of the doubt, but that last response is a yes.

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

Yeah, I guessed that too. But, DDO does have a few non-native or poor English speakers, so I wanted to afford him the benefit of the doubt.
