Dennis Sorensen Paradigm

Last changed 1/31 3:27P CDT

I have been a debate judge for approximately 7-8 years, but only in Illinois.

Speed is okay as long as the debater has a clear intelligible voice. I have difficulty following what I call whispery voices especially at speed because I tend to not hear everything being said properly. I have been recently been diagnosed with hearing "not at normal levels".

Also, I am all for robust intelligent debates, but keep it above boards. Please no sniping or snickering at your opponents expense. This behavior is a big no-no for me.
