I have this strange feeling that 10 new members are going to jump up from underneath the Earth, happen to be zionists, and vote bomb me. So I'm just looking around for anyone who wants to judge HONESTLY (no, I don't want anyone to vote-bomb me or my opponent). There has only been half a round of arguing, the entirety of round 1 is only definitions and rules. Any one who judges, I appreciate your time and effort and will return the favor if asked.

I promise to vote honestly and fairly, based on the strength and coherency of the arguments presented rather than on any personal opinions.

I promise to return the favor if asked. By the way, you win the "most innocent" award, for the structure of that sentence.

Okay sounds good. For me, I'd rather read each round individually so I don't have to go 20 straight minutes, but I'll message you after it's all done.

Your mind is sharper than mine, i wouldn't remember the arguments well enough to see the flow.

I wouldn't put my money on that.

I am well-known for my support of the campaign to free Palestine from the illegal Israeli occupation and the right of Palestinian refugees to return to the property and land in Israel they were driven off shortly after the state was created.

However, I can't vote so I can't counter any pro-Israeli vote bombing, sorry!

I will examine it; probably tonight. I've taken a quick look at it just now, and it's not going to be easy to call.

Good work, both of you.

What about Pro-Palestine vote bombing? There's a possibility of that too. This debate has alot of potential to be vote bombed by both sides.

Just to clarify, I never expected it to be. I just don't have time this afternoon to thresh it all out.

You have a whole month, there is no rush. I appreciate your time regardless of how long it takes.

Not when you have to be American to vote, but you did an awesome job and you deserve credit for that anyway.

Is "you" referring to me? If so, I truly appreciate it.

That is true, though I will say, if I suspect vote bombing on a noticable scale, I will alter my vote to counter it. Both sides can already see how I voted, though it would be nice if you could simply give a grade to each side, since I felt that both sides did really well (on some points and not so well on others). I think that would be a better indicator of a debate like this one, then our current voting system.

I'm also prepared to alter my vote if vote-bombing does occur. This is a touchy subject for alot of people.

Although we need to make sure that if vote bombing occurs that 1 side doesn't counter that vote bombing with vote bombing, and then the other side see that as vote bombing, and then they vote bomb back to counter it, and a vicious cycle repeats for generations until it is nothing but one side countering the other side and no one really remembering how it all started.

That sounds somewhat familiar... lol

I am a Zionist and will absolutely vote fairly. I dislike vote bombing.

Go ahead then. We need more votes as long there's no vote-bombing going on.
