Additional remarks:

I keep a rigorous flow

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.

If you don't provide a Value in the round then i'll default to the other team. Analytics are fine when talking about how we ought to think. If you are trying to prove a fact, then I will want to see evidence/empirics. I 1st decide who won the framework portion of the debate (Value W/ VC) and then I decide which position best upholds that framework.
