I think mine from a competition three months ago would be a decent contender for it: http://www.debate.org...
(and yes, it is pretty much a walk-through on how not to vote)

Actual vote, 0/7 in favor of the guy who FFed.
See comments... Later, much much later. Getting this level of mouth diarrhea prepared, will take time, and almost certainly the inhalation of bath-salts through my nose.

And in the comments, posted several days later, and well after the voting period ended.
VOTE RFD 1 of (infinity/0)^0
First of all, I shall use my well documented admin powers (every member of the VRB, is secretly a slave account to the site admin) to delete every vote in favor of con, and permanently strip them of voting privileges; since any opinion not in direct agreement with my own is an obvious votebomb. I'll also edit the code (since despite all signs of the contrary, the admin and president have access to that any time they want) to award 7 points for each of the following reasons...

1. In simple terms pro was clearly right, so the content of the debate (to include forfeits) doesn't matter when voting. Only a cheater would award points based on quality of arguments presented, or withhold any for the strength of their personal bias.
2. "pro was foolish in this debate and kinda sexist" All good things!
3. "This tidbit destroys your scholarly attempts on fact giving. Rabbinical scholars date Moses' birth 1391 BCE; Ussher dates it at 1620 or 1619 BCE." That this information never came up in the debate is irrelevant.
4. 'no fair, first round is supposed to be for acceptance [imabench]!' con clearly posted in the first round, in violation of this opinion which was not set as a rule.
5. "Sources to [pro] because [con] did not cite his sources in MLA format."
6. 'This is just the way I am.'
7. "[Pro] impressed me the most."
8. "Con was offensive." Better yet, offensive for not just agreeing with pro! (Actually used in many deleted RFDs)
9. "This is an interesting debate. Though if only Con can come up with valid and relevant arguments..." Free speech for slave accounts is a constitutionally protected right (even on a private website)!
10. "cvb" now to randomly vote this way on 50 or so other debates, against anyone who has ever so much as not voted strongly enough in my favor... Oh and add them to a magic list of people who are not allowed to vote on my debates!

Number 1 on Ragnar's list is my favorite
I've seen votes reminiscent of that, far more often than I'd like. The first time I remember seeing it, was not in a RFD itself, but in requests for votebombs by a certain user (I wonder if anyone still remembers him?) who was obsessed with "cheaters;" the same user in question introduced me to magic lists.

Seems ok to me. After all, in the end, isn't that what you are saying, the other guys argument was better. Knowing why you lost doesn't make you win. And the guy who won could care less why he won, a win is a win. But I understand the need for the intellectualism of explaining yourself.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
