All of my debates have basically been forfeits, be it an actual "forfeit" or someone saying "gee, I guess you're better than me, good debate but I don't have anything to say" or that sort of thing.

It's really quite annoying, I work fairly hard on my arguments only to have someone forfeit the debate without even trying to refute me.

Did you really just revive a thread that was 4 years old to get votes on a debate that you already got votes on and won? Really?

How did you accidentally find a 4 year old thread?

That's some bs right there. It is 4 years old. Were you simply looking through the old threads and became so far removed from the present time that you lost any sense of what necroposting was?

I haven't been in the ddo forum in ages, but I recall there being threads in there. Any way, the last place you should look is the 4 year old threads in the Misc forum. Especially when you already got votes on your debate and won. If it was unvoted, then i KNOW there's a stickied thread for that in the DDO forum.

Yes, a majority of my opponents have forfeited rounds. It is getting pretty annoying, although only when I'm really into it and then they fail to provide a challenge.

Idk if I have time for a debate right now (kinda trying to get a second job, not fail college, find somewhere to live bc I'm probably getting kicked out in a month, and possibly even plan a move to a city an hour away atm) but that sounds so fun! Pleasepleaseplease get someone to debate that so i can read it?
