Reasons for voting decision: Pro is the only one with arguments, arguments to Pro by default. CON FF'S all rounds. (P.S., I certainly think your first round is right. Some people eat paper, and some people trade cheese for other snacks at snack time in my school, so it is definetely money.)

Reasons for voting decision: Pro was the only side to provide a case - arguments to Pro. Since Pro used google docs and Con forfeited, these are both acts of poor conduct and they cancel eachother out. Therefore, I only award pro the arguments points.
