Judging Philosophy

CX

Rounds judged:
Judging approach: stock issues
Policy priority: Equal
Evidence philosophy: quality
Paradigm: I don't find speed of delivery persuasive in any way—if I can’t understand you, you will not get credit for an argument. I'm not a fan of counter-plans or canned responses by the Negative (e.g. DAs that end in nuclear fallout don't usually have merit). I appreciate clear/concise roadmaps and organized delivery. I am primarily a stock issues judge.
