I keep detailed notes throughout the round

Note: if you wish for your pronouns to appear the debaters you judge on text/email blasts, log into Tabroom, click Profile at top, and add them in the Pronouns field.

I prefer arguments to be well structured, articulated clearly (please no spreading but I can understand a considerably faster than conversational pace) and supported by convincing evidence. I don't mind listening to a unique or interesting argument but somehow you MUST tie it back to the resolution if you are going to get my ballot.
