Check it out. Not yet under way... hoping DAT actually accepts.

Come on, the guy has no chance. He doesn't have full cognitive functionality, he can't reason or use logic. It's like kicking somebody who already is down.
So prove me wrong, then.

Yea... this is just exploitation.
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.

There's nothing cowardly about declining a challenge: that's what the DECLINE option is for.
You are a troll. I owe you nothing apart from an increase in showing you to be the pretender you are.
AND..I would never accept a challenge with the words 'on balance' in it!

Lol - why not? It just means "compared to X, Y..." There's nothing subversive or anything about it. You're simply ill-equipped or too cowardly to defend your own position.

I prefer the cut and thrust of the forums. All of you guys just do exactly the same thing every debate: loads of links to ever obscurer garbage.
I want truth, not victory.

The fact that you cannot understand something does not make it obscure OR garbage.

The fact that ANYONE can find a link to information that SOMEONE is not conversant with, is in no way proof of superiority in ANY given subject.
Hence my natural aversion to this method of debate: It's dishonest, not to say cowardly.

This is unfortunate, I always enjoy JCMT's debates. Hopefully Skeptic or another user takes this one up.

Since JCMT is advertising, I shall too.

Debates in which a round was forfeited do not pop up on the front page. Comments? Advice?

Sure, NEVER debate that which you do not personally believe in: You already have dishonesty issues and this can only help to re-enforce them.

Now open to all since DAT has become overcome with cowardice on two occasions...

I'll make a duplicate if more than 1 person wants to accept.

Overcome with cowardice? You are funny.

I received 7 points extra on the debate that I advertised, but there was no RFD. I thank whoever voted for the votes, but I'd also greatly appreciate input on how to better argue this topic, or even advice for my opponent :)

Here is the debate again.
