LD Outrounds:

I got put into the LD outround pool. I do not normally judge LD -- please be nice to me. I will probably not understand any jargon, but I do debate a lot in other formats so make it clear to me what you're referring to. Don't be too fast. Thanks :)

I'm currently a sophomore at Harvard College debating in APDA and British Parliamentary. I did not do PF in high school – jargon is blegh to me.

Harvard HST 2021 (Public Forum / Zoomrum):

TL;DR: Generally tab, focus on weighing and warranting. Frontline in 2R. Don't be a dick.

Quick Rules:

1. Be nice, and please don't argue. If you are a male speaker who keeps interrupting female competitors in cross-ex, I will probably tank you.

2. Speak clearly. The best way to get something onto the flow is if I can understand what you're saying, and I vote off of my flow. Even though I'm used to people speaking fast, I cannot guarantee I will flow everything if you spread.

3. Auto 30s for a round of interpretive dances.

Paradigm:

1. I'm tab unless there's something truly uncomfortable for me to listen to, at which point I will stop flowing. If this happens, you have most likely lost the round.

2. Please weigh, and weigh as much as possible. If weighing goes uncontested, I will pick it up even if it doesn't have fully fleshed-out warranting. If I'm not given weighing by either side, I will have to evaluate that through my own intuition. Similarly, if an impact is muddled, I will resolve it through my intuition. My own intuition is almost exclusively bad (I chose of my own accord, for example, to be a philosophy major). My bad intuition makes it very hard to win the round.

3. Please frontline in 2R. If you don't, I'll discount future responses significantly. If it's not in final focus, it probably means you didn't think it was important enough to bring up. That means it's not important enough for me to vote off of. No new warrants in Summary / FF.

4. I don't really care what some old white economist from MIT has to say on an issue; bring me the warranting and logic that makes it relevant to the debate.

5. I don't judge often, so I have no idea what a kay is. I also didn't prep this topic ahead of time. But I do like cities.

6. If you are one of the debaters trying to argue that increased rates of cholera or higher death rates are good, just please don't. I will be embarrassed on your behalf, not as a debater, but as a human.

Have fun!
