Post debates that need votes here!

To make members aware that your debate has concluded, and that it needs votes, please post a link to your debate in this thread.

For an additional method of gaining votes, please refer to post #2 of this thread [content to be added].

-----

Please read the following notes on voting:

Vote Moderation Policy Guide: https://www.debate.org...

Most debates on DDO require an "RFD," which stands for "reason for decision." The reason needs to be a sufficient explanation for *why* you thought one side had better arguments, higher quality sources, superior spelling and/or grammar, or superior conduct. Be careful because your vote will be removed if you (1) fail to explain one of the point categories you award, (2) don't do a good enough job explaining *why* you awarded the point, or (3) do something called "strategic voting" (i.e. award points for small technicalities or for bogus reasons so your vote counts for more points).

Here is a more in-depth guide on how to meet the voting requirements: http://www.debate.org...

It is strongly recommended that new users read both the Vote Moderation Policy Guide, and the in-depth guide before voting. Many new users often don't understand how to explain exactly *why* they awarded the points or what will be considered strategic voting. For example, saying "Con had better rebuttals" is not going to be considered a good enough explanation. If you want to understand why, please read the guides. Be aware that if you choose to vote without reading the guides and issue bad RFDs, you risk having your voting privileges removed.

The individuals responsible for vote moderation are as follows:


Airmax1227 - Head Moderator - http://www.debate.org...
Whiteflame - Voting Issues Moderator - http://www.debate.org...

Obligatory front page post.
"Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe." - Frederick Douglass

0 Votes for "Objective morality is an incoherent concept".

Your opinion will be greatly appreciated.

http://www.debate.org...
Believing in "objective reality" is just like believing in heaven.

Please adhere to obvious epistemological limits.

Can someone explain this whole "Airmax=Bladerunner" thing?

I am the rare black conservative Republican. A species so rare, the Discovery Channel has a documentary on it. Or is it National Geographic?

It's an old joke that was never funny, but people think if they repeat something stupid enough times they'll get pity laughs.

One round debate about doctor assisted death.

As you can see, the Fuzzy Cat-Potato (Quamquam Felis-tuberosum) is far too evolutionarily disadvantageous to ever evolve. Thus, a God must exist, and he is drunk.
