Pro

Henderson's boys books are WAY better than Cherub
ResponsiblyIrresponsible

Con

PRO offers nothing more than an assertion--he basically restates the resolution without providing any substantive argument or reason he believes that to be true, nor an objective criteria by which we can gauge whether one is better. He was affirming that one was better than the other, while in order to win I only needed to negate--I did not need to defend the counter that Cherub books are better, but if that option remained on the table, or if the option that they are equal in worth remains, you vote CON by default.

Therefore, you vote to negate because PRO has given us no reason to think that one is objectively better than the other, or that there's any objective means by which to weigh that.

Reasons for voting decision: Forfeiture, so Con gains Conduct there. Arguments to Con due to Pro barely putting up a case and Con refuted everything Pro said and a little more.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro makes no arguments and fails to uphold the BOP, so Con wins by default. Pro also forfeited a round, so Con wins conduct.
