As a general rule, when I offer a pithy, ostensibly biased RFD on a joke-debate it's because I thought it merciful not to outrightly chastise or make fun of the guy who I gave the loss to for his being, more or less, awful. So, if you report my vote, realize that "nice YYW" will probably be replaced with "honest YYW."

I agree. They expect serious votes on troll debates.

Which is complete bullsh!t. If you want me to give you a serious RFD, then write a serious goddamn debate.

I would think that people would assume, based on my reputation, that if I'm casting a pithy RFD on a joke debate... it's because I don't want to make fun of people in an RFD... but I guess some people lack the foresight to see that.

I have the opinion a RFD need be no better than the debate it is grading. Which is not to say it can skip spelling out a RFD related to areas voted on (if not wanting to write a reason for those areas, just don't vote on them).
