I can judge - I'll TheTrashDebater's template:
I’ll throw my name in the pool- TLDR: I'm to voting for anything, ASPEC, OSPEC, Rights Malthus (BUT NOT baudrillard), HOWEVER, you have to win that these are capital T Truth in order to win my ballot Basic: Truth>Tech - Fair warning, I'm going to spend the next few days reading every single word in your evidence and if for a moment I suspect that you are mischaracterizing your evidence, I shall report you to Tabroom immediately!!
Clipping - If you are exposed, please read clipping good, it really makes my day. I think that because this is a really aff-biased activity, the neg should get some leeway when it comes to clipping, so I usually give them 3 extra lives before I'll get made at them for clipping. Neg gets as many condo as they want. I really don't give a crap to be honest. The aff needs to stop whining about condo sometimes
50 state fiat - NEVER a voting issue, (NEG, add as many planks to that CP as you want, in fact, add another 10 condo planks in the 2nc and I'll give you an extra WHOLE speaker point)
T, I default to competing interps - I think reasonability is an excuse for sloppy debating. My favorite T on this topic was T-Ikonen, so I'm really excited to see what kind of abusive T you will run in this debate! HOWEVER, I will be persuaded that T is whiteness, so Aff, you know what to do.
On high theory K’s: I don't know what this is, why you read this, and how it does anything. They're a NOPE for me. CP/DA’s: I think there's always a risk of the DA no matter what, so if the neg runs a DA, the aff may as well concede. CPs are ok, I love Process CP like GBNs, they're just so great for education and learning. I really love abusive CPs too, like PICs are my favorite. If you run the most abusive PIC you can get away with, I'll boost your speaks extremely high. K aff’s: Not a fan, you may as well read the IDEA aff if you want to be "tricky" (i know its the immigration topic but just providing a similar situation to this years topic) FW: You know what they say, Framework makes the game work
I usually err neg on theory because I just like it that way. If you can prove why the plan text is abusive, I'll happily vote you up
I love it when you post memes in the speech docs! Make sure they're not racist, homophobic, islamaphobic, transphobic etc. That kind of behavior will NOT be tolerated.
So when can I start judging?
