Reason:

Full forfeit, so conduct and arguments to Con. Since sources applicable here; they will go to Con as well. Spelling and Grammar cannot be compared and therefore will be tied. Still, I kinda wanna see what this debate could’ve been. If I have time, I might actually judge a fully fledged debate.
