[eDebate] DEBATERS CHOICE AWARDS 2007 -- RESULTS

But that's kind of Neil's (and Danielle's and Doug's) point. This is an
opt-in survey that demonstrates the prevailing mood of the cross-section of
our community who actively cares about student selected, largely national
circuit awards. Given that these voters, if not a majority, are at least
the "squeaky wheels" of the community, the fact that these trends develop is
unsettling and worth noting.
And the answer is no. The DCAs turn into a controversy every year for a
very good reason, because the lack of formality to the discussion
unwittingly provides insight into the unconscious problems of the community.
I agree with Neil on a lot of stuff but this is kind of silly. This is a
poor model taken by an opt-in survey of debaters. It gives little accurate
information about gender preference in judges. If we want to talk about elim
judging etc, fine, but this is just a couple of debaters.
Can we just have one year where DCAs don't turn into a controversy.
