updated 3/26/20 tl;dr:
- I've been away from debate for a bit, so please assume I know nothing about the topic and err on the side of clarity. If you have any questions, please ask!

- I'm most familiar with policy args and Ks, fine with T/theory, less familiar with complex phil, least familiar with tricks. But read what you want and just explain it well.

policy stuff:

- 2NRs that just extend evidence on DAs are much less effective than 2NRs that explain the link story and weigh
- evidence quality is important and debaters should compare evidence



Ks:
- Most important thing to do is explain what the alt does/ world of the alt looks like/ alt solvency
- Specific links are good. It's not enough to just tell me that something is bad, you have to explain how the aff makes things worse or how the alt resolves this thing better

- There needs to be more answers to the perm than "links are DAs"
- I have less experience with "high theory" (Baudrillard, Deleuze, etc) so I'll need more explanation on these Ks.

- The the 2NR story cannot be drastically different from the 1NC/cx.



T/ Theory:
- slow down when reading these, especially on the interp and please weigh
- I'd prefer that you not read theory just for the sake of reading theory. More frivolous interps = lower threshold for responses
- Not super persuaded by RVIs most of the time but am persuaded by reasonability
- You don't have to defend the resolution, but you should do something, or else presumption is pretty persuasive. I will also vote on presumption if you don't explain your solvency mechanism

- disclosure is good, cites plus first and last 5 words are fine



Cheating Allegations:

If a cheating allegation is made, the round is staked on that question. There is a difference between reading theory and making an accusation about someone's academic integrity, and I take these allegations very seriously. If the allegation is proven true, I will give a loss and the lowest speaker points possible. But if the person making the allegation is incorrect, they will get a loss and the lowest speaker points possible.
