Binghamton University's 1st Annual Online Debate Tournament


*Does not count opponents in bye or forfeit rounds.

About Me: I have debated on the Arizona Lincoln-Douglas debate circuit as well as the Public Forum Debate circuit. Since I have debate experience, you should find that you can run intricate policy debate-style arguments with me and I should be able to follow. I hope to be able to judge for you in a manner that you find fair, even as the losing side.
Judge Philosophy: My judging paradigms are generally tabulorasa, meaning that I'll accept someone's bad argument as true until it's proven wrong. As the judge, I don't think that I should have to make the arguments for you. If you want the vote, then you have to show me just how wrong your opponent is.

Since this resolution implies a foreign policy, a plantext would be nice, however I have no expectations from either side, seeing as how not all competitors here have academic debate experience.

I like impacts. Without them, I don't care about what you're saying.

I'm fine with speed if you wanna go for it, but I'll vote you down if I can't understand you (obviously).

If your cases aren't explicitly structured, then I may or may not follow along. Any argument that I don't write down is an argument you didn't make. Similarly, I expect structured speeches within a round. That being said, I'd like to see every argument responded to within the subsequent speech. On the grounds of theory for fairness and education, I accept the idea that a dropped argument is a conceded argument.
