The "Spec List"

Recommended Posts

Since there's always been such a demand for this, I'll post a list of all the spec arguments I know. Feel free to post any additions.

 

This by no means should indicate any endorsement of specification arguments. I think they're timesucks, and have no place in a decent debate round. This thread is simply intended to end the constant demands for a complete list of the specifications.

 

Specifications:

Agent

Author

Ballot

Budget

Bush

Death

Discourse

Enforcement

Evidence

Exact Significance

Fiat

Funding

Ground

Harms

Impact

Implementation

Individual Microagents

Inherent Barrier/Inherency

Jurisdiction

Justification

Kritikal

Location

Objective

Over-

Paradigm

Parameter

Passage

Politics

Plan

Qualification

Resolution

Solvency Advocate

Specification

Support

Time

Topicality

Under

Vagueness

Veto

congressman specification, the aff does not specify which congressmen vote for the plan, thus destroying the negs ability to counterplan to have different ones do it.

How has everyone forgotten the oh-so-deadly Highlighter Specification. If they have multiple colors of highlighter, they should be required to specify which ones they read. And OF COURSE cross-x doesn't check.

I think my friend recorded Greenstein's "Winning on Nothing" lecture from SDI this year, and I beleive that he (my friend, that is) mentioned highlighter spec. I'll see if I can get the recording...
