Approach: Communication skills and resolution of substantive issues are of equal importance

I don't have a preconcieved notion of what the debaters should argue. I will accept any argument but will give more weight to plausible arguments. I don't have an objection to rapid speech, but fast speaking debaters risk losing me on the flow.
