Cool, thanks.

Say, what are the rules to semantics in Debate arguments? I know you said in the Rules that there pratically is none, but...?

At the discretion of the chief judge I'd say. In general both sides should be arguing the spirit of the topic.

As long as it's not beyond the pale, semantics are generally fine. However, I will not limit judge opinions on this matter. If those voting on these debates find some major fault with pursuing a semantic argument, then it's within their discretion to vote with that in mind.

You should let The Redneck and JuniorVarsity redo their debate. In the intrest of time make it a quick debate. It is disappointing that nothing was actually said worthwhile in that debate anyways.

I have a feeling the redneck would just troll that debate as well.

Unfortunately, for many reasons, I can't break the round structure. Debaters should be able to debate within the parameters given if they intend to do well in the tournament.

Maybe not. I think I know him pretty well though. It's my little brother. I told him to stay off DDO, because he's an idiot and I didn't want him to embarrass me. I guess he'll likely end up having to start an account for the WODC, though.
