Independent Voter Spam

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any published articles or written theory blocks about this phenomena? It might be more of a problem in LD, not sure. I feel like I've seen blocks on this in framework files in the past, but can't find any at the moment.

Relatedly, when I'm writing K blocks I keep having this urge to throw an independent voter claim on every other sub-argument. I'm pretty sure that's abusive and am looking for an argument to help me restrain my cheating urges. How will/do people punish this? It's sort of a no-risk move, sans theory.

These are called NIBs (necessary hut insufficient burdens) in LD and a number of articles have been written about this on LD websites


I would say in policy this is a no risk move
