    Comments: Strong opening, but I feel as the debate went on you began to lose the effectiveness of the emotional appeal of the case from the suicide harm, as well as being a bit behind on the question of Supreme Court passing it Very strong opening, some of the better points got lost/watered down in the last speech but still had enough going, although it would e better to highlight the impacts a little clearer.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Megan Durkin

    Reason for Decision:

    Ultimately, I end up voting Neg. I think there are two major problems that become clear, that 1) Even if the Proposition wins that there is the funds and enforcement to do it, if the Supreme Court won't pass it than it won't get anywhere and 2) The question of owners being targeted when it isn't their fault isn't answered well enough. The major neg point is the owners don't upload these and yet would wind up bearing responsibility, and the propositions only answer is that because they direct traffic they should be responsible, which seems to lead to the opposition's impact.
    I think a stronger emphasis on the suicide harm would have been helpful, as there were only ten seconds spent on it in the closing, which made it difficult to figure out why to vote for the proposition.

    It was a great debate from both debaters, good luck in future rounds!
