Criterion Pro Tie Con Points
Better arguments 3 points
Better sources 2 points
Better spelling and grammar 1 point
Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
Full Forfeit, Con is only one to present arguments in-debate (not in debate description) and to use sources. 'Ethical' has a normal definition here unlike some traps Pro set in other similar debates of this kind. Thus, Con truly wins.
