The whole point of starring your opponent's post is resolved by simply using the purpose of stars. You give one out to a post you like.
You may be in a debate, but sportsmanship dictates that if you like your opponent's response, you give a star to it, period.
Personally, since it is a debate, and I like how my opponents do respond, I always give one star to each post. It's a trivial matter, but heck, if
they took all that time to research, think their post through, and then decide to stick it with no chance of editing, it deserves a star. For me, I
star before I even read. Because it is a debate, and I may not like what I read, I give the star out first, then settle in to my opponent's reply.
I can't take a star back, so it's a gesture that means you get at least three stars for agreeing to a debate with myself.
That's just me.
