You voting doesn't fix the core problem but thank you.

Yes I would prefer that actually, if you can't see the flaw and correct the writing then I'd prefer you apply it with common sense.

For enforcing the policy as it is written, which explicitly spells out how is it to be interpreted for this debate type? Would you prefer vote moderators that just do whatever they feel like day to day, instead of looking at the policy?

In any case, you are always welcome to appeal to another moderator. They might read those lines of the policy different than I.

>Reason for Mod Action:

This being a choose winner debate, the repeated forfeitures do allow a conduct only award to be the determinant without further consideration. Further consideration is of course allowed (encouraged even), but is not strictly required.

The vote was found to be sufficient per the site voting policy standards.

Any unexcused forfeited round merits an automatic conduct loss, but arguments must still be voted on or justified as a tie. Repeated forfeitures waives the need to consider arguments (you still may, but by the choice of one side to miss at least 40% of the debate, the requirement ceases. And yes, this does apply to Choose Winner, which otherwise would not allow conduct to be the sole determinant).
Should either side forfeit every round or every round after their initial arguments (waiving is not an argument), the debate is considered a Full Forfeiture, and any majority votes against the absent side are not moderated (a vote may still be cast in their favor of the absentee, but is eligible for moderation to verify that it is justified via the normal voting standards).

take a look at his username and other debates and tell me it isn't a severe assumption on his sexist agenda.

Because the trend dictates that women in comparison to men are overwhelmingly the stay-at-home parent. It's a presumption that leaves out stay-at-home fathers, but isn't a bad presumption.

Why does it only include females?
