Most of the time I vote I vote not with arguments but with one of the other options to give a 1 or a 2 to arguments.

The reason being is that some debates are a complete lop sided beating and to give both that debate and another where you have just a slight edge to arguments both a three seems wrong.

It would seem sensible to allow arguments to grade from 1-3 and similar for gammar to be 1-2 as sometimes again that is just horrible and sometimes it is minor.

For example :

"iz be best if abortions were stopps"

and then a well thought out reply can not be given a simple yes/no on grammar/arguments.

I do not think that is a 3-0 on arguments for PCP, it is more like 3:1

PCP and UnidedAndy was much closer, 3:2 on arguments to UnitedAndy as it was very close.

And then you have as a clear 3:0 (sorry badger but you were curb stomped)

Anyway, just an idea but it would be appreciated if I could selected like strong/medium/weak on the wins in the categories or at least some of them.
