little to no argumentative preference; fine for the k; would much rather you go for the thing you practice than listen to an attempt at adaptation
conditionality is good; default judge kick
better for presumption than most
tech over truth
voting for the plan aff vs. the k a little bit more recently, bout 50/50 on framework vs. the no plan aff
2. framework/k affs:
been on both sides, so i default to tech. fairness pls. better for limits bad than state evil. need a role for the negative.
k affs are fine. good for identity, bad for high theory. examples are very important in these debates to conceptualize what you are trying to produce or things the aff (or the permutation) might agree with. extremely bad for repeating "normative." yes perms in a methods debate.
neg: former structural inherency proponent. these arguments suck tho. just say something else, but of course will judge these debates more closely to tech than others.
aff: condo: good; pic's: lawful good; process cp's: chaotic neutral; negative: fiat; states cp: core negative generic; floating pik's: prolly bad; vague alts: ...lmfao.
go for it. not a big fan of politics. very easily persuaded by a nuanced turns the case argument. disads that are specific to the aff are sweet.
5. the k:
admittedly bad for high theory. the best link explanations use the language of the aff against them. i care more about form than content. things i don't care for: antonio, critiques of communication, non-black ppl reading arguments abt black ppl, psycho sans identity, theory of power as the only link. framework debate often decides the debate for the links you are gonna go for, esp in ld.
not much to say here. not a big fan of framing contentions, but am a big fan of getting to vote neg on presumption.
competing interpretations. not the best at adjudicating these debates tbh. predictable limits matter more than precision.
8. other things
prolly should start slower in front of me than others.
very emotive during debates.
generally gives higher points.
