I was at a debate tournament this weekend, and I was spectating a round on the topic "The benefits of post 9/11 security measures outweigh the harms to personal freedoms", and to my surprise when the Affirmative reads their speech it is, almost word for word, this: http://www.debate.org...

The only thing different is that they added a few cards about homeland security and agricultural terrorism, and excluded my example from the Justice Department.

Not that I mind, because that case was terrible (I wouldn't have put it online if I was considering actually debating that one) but it was still very strange!

I can't imagine how many people secretly pilfer information and arguments off of DDO without citation. Yet, if you improperly cite a famous author, people would go on some asinine uproar, even though you still gave the guy credit, just improperly....The Modern Language Association is full of retards.

I'm sure this happens fairly often. Did you call them out on it?

I would've considered it if they won, but they got slammed (and rightfully so, I'll be the first to admit that that's a weak case) so I decided to just let them keep losing with it :)

It may have been your opponent in that debate. Not only did the forfeit very round after you posted your case, but the format also had it to where she didn't have to post a case. Seems obvious that the plan was to copy your case from the start.

Thett,

Did you write the case yourself, or did you grab cards/arguments from a camp file or from someone's backfiles?

Wow! Isn't that grounds for disqualification? Did you say anything?

I'm not sure if it would be grounds for disqualification. It probably would be. I didn't say anything because I didn't want anyone to know I was a member of this site, and I didn't really care either. I literally put that case together in 10 minutes, lol.

But it was certainly interesting...I mean, what are the odds right? I remember that vividly. Wish I had my flow (notes) from the round. I probably wrote some interesting stuff.

Still, shouldn't necro-post...but w/e. If he was linked here I can understand it.
