Full Forfeit debates are not moderated.
Fear of people doing that, is part of why debating stressed me out so much. ... Oh, just had a good idea!
I thought the 4-3 favoured him and was worried he'd spam with alts as the voting period ends. Anyway, I thank you for revoting. What I strategized to do in this debate is argue that he's morally good for intentionally losing debates.
In one of the extended documents there's some specification added to full forfeitures still allowing some points in favor, but only moderated if the weight of the points does not favor the non-forfeited side. ... Which is an extra reason I want to refine the voting policies, as I believe things should be in one place.
I meant it largely as a joke without potential for harm while still giving you the majority of points... but fixed.
the coc make it so that even if the other side literally concedes, the FF overpowers it. You gave more points to the side that didn't FF, it can't possibly match the CoC's demand to always award the win to the side that didn't FF.
Not by my observation in my debate with EricT in https://www.debateart.com/debates/2075/resolved-law-enforcement-caused-death-and-injury-to-u-s-citizens-are-not-by-epidemic-proportion
I may have to abstain voting on your debate.
Based on his skill level, the only way you'll win is if he doesn't try.
Also, if I win this debate, then it is good for me because I won. If I lose, it is still good for me because you think I'm a good debater. Thanks for the win-win situation.
I love how everyone wants to bash me. Are you going to publish an argument or is this going to be my first win?
Made me think of my "Con will win the debate" debate while I am Pro. The first actual debate that I have won.
I mean, he asked for it in a PM. So, I think it's not a callout debate. If it is, I'll gladly delete it immediately, ofc
At first glance this looks like a callout debate, but the instigator is the pro side complimenting the skill. If it was issued as a direct challenge (I have no way to view that), then there was no chance for anyone other than EricT to engage on the anti-EricT side.
forfeited by con
Full forfeit and no argument, source, S&GH, and poor conduct by forfeiture
Full forfeiture for the majority of points... That said, the case con offered of not being a good debater (and by merit of missing the debate, K'd the notion of being a debater at all), was very persuasive against the resolution.
Arguments & Sources: Neither side had offered any valuable reasons nor evidence.
S & G: Tie, duh
