Arguments I am a bad judge for:

1. Counterplans that say we should not do something. Like, “Congress should declare that it will never escalate conflict over Syria.” Both theoretically and in terms of solvency, this is not persuasive.

2. When planks of a counterplan are kicked, even though it was initially one counterplan.

3. When answering T, saying that “we are in the direction of the topic.”

The following are what I thought about real situations I've judged in recent memory:

1. Let’s say the 2ac says “perm do both” on the counterplan. The 2nc says “it links to midterms because of x warrant.” The 1ar says the phrase “extend perm do both” and nothing else. The 2nr drops the perm and then the 2ar makes a big deal about it not being answered. In this situation the 1ar did not develop the argument any further and only repeated the 2ac. If the 2nc warrant for why it links to midterms is uncontested, then I don’t care that the meaningless standalone phrase “perm do both” was not directly addressed a second time. In another context, a lot of rfd’s on topicality start off by mentioning that the 2ar did not extend their counter-interpretation. If the 2ac and the 1ar are clear about it, then it does not really need to be repeated a third time.

2. If the neg block has 2 separate counterplans, and the 2nr combines them into one advocacy, this is pretty clearly introducing a new world. The 2ar would be allowed to make new theoretical arguments and would also be able to introduce new disadvantages based on how the two previously separate counterplans might interact.

3. Say the aff says “speed bad,” and the neg adapts and slows down. In the 2ar, the aff goes fast again, knowing that the neg can’t bring it back up. I vote neg.

Little annoyances:

1. Excessive use of body language during opponents’ speeches

2. When people crouch down and read incomprehensibly off of their partner’s laptop

3. Not seeing someone’s face because the stand is too high

4. The 2ar phrase that goes something like “to vote for them, you have to be able to look me in the eye after the debate and tell me that ...”

5. The whole angle of “x is inevitable, it’s only a question of its effectiveness.” It's not conceptually wrong, but is overplayed and often not true.

6. A 2ac "perm do the cp" in situations that obviously don't make sense.
