As a judge, my philosophy is quite simple. I like policy oriented debates but theory is fine. K's, if ran well, and given a clear alternative are great. I will only vote on topicality or conditionality if the debators can show apporiate standards, violations, and prove clear voting issue. 

Spreading is preferred for constructed speeches and 1 NR/AR. For final rebuttals, spreading is acceptable, but taking time to outline voting issues, impact calculation and clear lines of argumentation are more likely to earn higher speaker points.

With that being said, the team who can prove that they have won the debate and why, usually has done a better job of arguing their position against their opponents arguments,
