You ever notice how people who subscribe to "moral relativism" are the first to give you crap about not following debate "rules"
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

And your point would be?
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.

What does a violation of moral relativism have to do with the established rules of a debate?

I'm a 'relativist' but I insist on how I would have things..
(and don't you even suggest this is inconsistent b/c it's not and if you'd suggest it is you're just proving yourself a dummy :P)

also... I'm a relativist... and I hate "rules" of many stripes... and wouldn't care much at all for "debate rules"

what a useless thread.

How is it a violation of moral relativism?
