I like getting requests to vote on debates, and I use that word inclusively because it includes music battles, rap battles, etc. I really do. Voting is indispensable to this site's continuity and I've written a lot about how it it's done, how it ought to be done and why. But right now, I'm going to list for you all the topics I'm most and least likely to vote on, with a brief explanation:

Most Likely:

(1) Politically related anything. Political science or theory/philosophy, contemporary events, national, international politics, etc.

(2) Philosophy, generally, other than debates about God's existence or nonexistence.

(3) Rap battles where I know people who participate in them.

(4) Debates over past LD/PF topics.

Debates I may or may not vote on:

(1) Dead or moot issues like (pun intended) abortion, evolution, global warming, contraception, and the like.

(2) Debates about historical events.

(3) Debates whose resolutions dispute positive scientific claims.

(4) Debates whose resolutions entail basic questions of indisputable fact.

Debates I am least likely to vote on:

(1) Debates about God's existence (ex: The KCM is sound.)

(2) Debates about subjects which I think are deleterious to the site (ex: "YYW should be banned because he is mean to people.")

I won't vote on rap battles or anything political or anything I won't understand. So I understand. But I don't mind viewing them either.
Better than deserved, as ALWAYS.

I'm willing to vote on anything, as long as I can vote on it. And it ain't over 50,000 characters in total. At that point my brain explodes.
