It is too bad what happened, but "one bad moment" has ruined many a lives
and not only in debate. We are responsible for our actions and any
consequences that follow. Sure, the penalty may be harsh, but in the end
this is a lesson for the rest of the community on what is acceptable and
unacceptable behavior in general. I have always put debate folks on higher
ground in terms of their intellect, communication skills and critical
thinking. Acts like this do nothing to prove my regard for debaters.
