Any racist / homophobic / sexist, etc etc argument will earn you a loss and the lowest speaks I can possibly give at the tournament. This should go without saying.
I have a very high threshold for arguments with sketchy link chains / internal warranting, but will buy the argument if it is dropped by the opponents and extended well.
Implicate your defense and weighing well. Use ballot directive language to tell me where to vote and why.
Please weigh. I love evidenced weighing and prereqs.
You can feel free to run theory / Ks in a round, but do not trust me to evaluate them correctly. I have the experience level of a lay judge when it comes to theory / Ks. Also, PF is (in my opinion) a bad space to run Ks due to the short speech times. There’s no way to fully evaluate the nuanced literature in a 45 min round.
Run what you are comfortable with. Don't try too hard to adapt to my paradigm, I am comfortable with voting on any argument.
Overall, have fun and don't take debate too seriously! You're still going to be the same person with or without a bid, 30 speaks, or an undefeated prelim record.
