disbelief is not non belief
Masterful

Con

"disbelief is not non belief"

This is a double negative, he is saying disbelief is belief.
To say that is just stupid.

Masterful, I don't report votes. I receive reports and address them. Votes on your debates have been reported a lot recently, but that doesn't mean that I personally am out to get you.

>Reported vote: ca2005// Mod action: Removed<

1 points to Con (S&G). Reasons for voting decision: Con used actual logic and open-mindedness.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter awards S&G, but does not explain that point allocation. Using logic and being open-minded have nothing to do with the spelling and grammar of either debater.
