NOTE THAT THESE SHELLS ARE ALL JOKES AND ARE NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY!
Interpretation and violation: Debaters except for Curtis Chang must flash all characters in at least font size 14 – they don’t. Standards: 1. Accessibility – small font sizes are harder to read for debaters with visual impediments (e.g. bad eyesight). Having a smaller font makes it harder for those debaters to keep track of what’s going on in round, which is a structural disadvantage. Serves an independent voter because people would quit debate. 2. Evidence ethics – small font sizes means debaters can make their uncut evidence super tiny and impossible to read. This allows debaters to miscut cards since they know the judge/opponent won’t be able to read into it carefully. Zooming in and setting the font size bigger doesn’t solve because the relative font size of the uncut card is the problem – zooming in and setting the font size to be uniform means you have to scroll way too fast to keep up, which is key to education.
