*Greenhill 2016.

I accept truth-testing arguments.

Give me a way to evaluate the debate.

I try to follow all of your arguments. I will yell "clear" or "slower", but if you just fall right back into the same unintelligible speech pattern two sentences later (after saying clear a couple of times) then I guess I won't get some of your arguments on my flow. If you are going to read a string of analytics quietly and/ or at top-speed then expect me to miss a lot of your arguments. If it is not on my flow then I will not vote for it. I think more judges should stick to that standard and not clear things up by calling for arguments/cards after the round. You choose how many arguments to include in your speeches.This goes for every argument in the round including theory, blocks, underviews and anywhere else you expect me to flow every sentence because its not gonna happen.

Please be respectful of everyone in the round. Rudeness and snarkiness are unwelcome.

Email chains are good.
Flashing is less good but fine.
Please reciprocally disclose.
