I did four years of LD debate in high school, on both the local and national circuit, so I'm well-versed in both progressive and traditional arguments.
However, while I won't punish a debater for doing so, I would prefer that they only run progressive arguments if their opponent also understands them; otherwise there's no real engagement.
If you spread, I just ask that you flash or send your case to your opponent if they request it. I'm fine with flex-prep, but let me know you want it before your opponent starts their prep.
I find that many debaters don't adequately engage with their opponent's framework - remember to directly attack them on the line-by-line if that's strategically right (and it is, more often than people think it is)
I will disclose at the end of a round if both debaters agree to it.
Weighing is important - for substance, for K's, and for theory.
