Your statement would be a little more compelling if you didn't make so many votebombs yourself.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

I hate sin.

I beg to differ. I'll go through each one of them with you.

1. Your RFD: " I basically found everything to be rather equal between the debaters, however I thought Con's arguments to be more convincing."

It's called an RFD (reasons for decision) for a reason. You gave no reasons for your vote; you simply restated the points you balloted. This was a very good debate, and any reasonable RFD should be much more detailed.

2. "I continued to agree with Pro and everything else just went by my thoughts on who did better in said category."

Back in the antediluvian days where people countered vote bombs instead of reporting them, your RFD was countered, and rightfully so. Again, there's still no reason for your voting decision.

3. Your RFD: "Con's arguments were more agreeable."

Well, that is a reason, but not a valid reason. You still don't go into any detail whatsoever.

4. Your RFD: "a"

I'm going to let you answer why this isn't a very good reason.

5. Your RFD: "fxgfxdffuhfyuvh"

Well, I see you've expanded your gibberish, but yet again, you should be able to answer this one too.

6. Your RFD: "a"

What is it with you and the letter "a" for your RFDs?

All aren't very good reasons.

Dude facepalm. I apologize for my RFDs on 4, 5, and 6. That was nooby.

But the kind of votebomb I meant was when they give ALL 7 votes to one person and have a horrible RFD.

Technically, it's still a votebomb whether 3 or 7 points are given without a valid RFD, but you should have specified that. Nevertheless, those first three are still votebombs because they don't have valid RFDs, regardless of whether or not they are complete sentences.

Okay, okay, whatever. At least you know what kind of votebomb I mean now.
