I like to be on the email chain if that is a thing that's happening.

tl;dr

You do you, I'll flow. I like policy args more than K args. I cannot type fast and flow on paper as a result. Please give pen time on T, Theory, and long o/v's etc. Don't be a jerk. Debaters work hard, and I try to work as hard as I can while judging.

Disads

I like politics debates. Reasons, why the Disad outweighs and turns the aff, are cool.

Counter Plans

Judge kicking the cp seems intuitive to me, and I have yet to have been convinced otherwise. Pics generally good, but can be persuaded otherwise. I really enjoy smart techy adv cp's. I generally think negatives should be more abusive. Personally, infinite condo seems good, real world etc. I imagine that there is a set of negative strategies that I could be convinced is unacceptable, but have yet to see it happen. I still expect that the 2AC make theory args and that the neg answer them sufficiently. It is possible for the aff to win these arguments, given negative mess-ups.

Kritiks

I like policy debate personally, but that should 0% stop you from doing your thing. I think I like K debates much better than my brain will let me type here. More often than not, I end up telling teams they should have gone for the K or voted for it. I think this is typically because of affirmative teams inability to effectively answer critical arguments

Links of omission are not links. Reject the aff is not an alternative, that's what I do when I agree to endorse the alternative. Explain to me what actually happens to change the world when I endorse your alternative. The aff should probably be allowed to weigh the aff against the K. Floating pics are probably bad. I think life has value and preserving more of it is probably good.

Kritical Affirmatives vs Framework

I think you should be in the direction of the resolution. I don't think framework/T is violent. Reading f/w and cap against these affs is a good place to be as a policy team. I think topic literacy is important. I think there are more often than not ways to read a topical USfg action and read similar offensive positions. I am increasingly convinced that debate is a game that ultimately inoculates advocacy skills for post-debate use. I generally think that having a procedurally fair and somewhat bounded discussion about a pre-announced topic helps facilitate that discussion. All of that said, I don't believe a plan text is the only way of achieving these debates goals.

Case Debates

Debates in which the negative engages all parts of the affirmative are significantly more fun to judge than those that do not.

Topicality/procedurals

Short blippy procedurals are almost always only a reason to reject the arg and not the team. T (along with all procedurals) is never an RVI. I am super uninterested in adjudicating a disclosure theory debate. Especially if the Coaching staff of one team has purposefully instructed debaters to not disclose and/or disclosure happened when I was not present. I am interested in telling teams they should disclose because it is clearly good. I may rectify this in speaker points if I do think something expressly bad has happened, however, I have yet to do so. I am also super uninterested in making objective assessments about events that took place outside of/before the debate round.

Things that are bad but people continually do:

Saying something sexist/homophobic/racist/ableist/transphobic - it will probably make you lose the debate at the worst or tank your speaks at the least.

Steal prep.

Send docs without the analytics you already typed. This doesn't actually help you. I sometimes like to read along. Some non-neurotypical individuals benefit dramatically by this practice. It wastes your prep, no matter how cool the macro you have programmed is.

Use the wiki for your benefit and not post your own stuff.

Refusing to disclose.

Reading the 1AC off of paper, when computers are accessible to you. Please just send the doc in the chain.

Doing/saying mean things to your partner or your opponents.

Unnecessarily cursing to be cool.
