Sorry that your style is only 6 abecrombi, but having the long lines made the screen expanded and made it a little annoying to scroll sideways with every line! And a lot of your text seemed to look like maths homework! (No offence meant, just explaining your Style points.)

Look forward to read other debates from you both!

Great debate from the both of you. I do agree with those long unnecessary lines that messed up the screen from abecrombi. Other then that it was a well researched debate and you guys seem to know what you're talking about. original.gif

I'm afraid my morals will not allow me to be as kind as the previous two judges. Style suffered on both sides I'm afraid, I found abecrombis' posts somewhat muddled with it being difficult to establish what was being quoted, what was written and what was a source.

Frogfishs' general style was absolutely fine but I felt it unecessary to quote such large passages from abecrombie which were pointless the first time around let alone posting them again. Also it would have been better if some of the information was summarised in your own words rather than quoting large passages from sources.

Frogfish stayed relevant throughout but a significant portion of abecrombies' debate seemed to be about photosythesis which was odd.

I felt that abecrombi could have done a better job countering frogfishs' posts, some of the counters even went so far as to support the wrong side. Also seahorses are not a-sexual, they are unusual because it is the males who get pregnant rather than the females.

All of the above is relevant to the persuasiveness scores, which speak for themselves.

Apologies for seeming unkind, but I feel being a judge is more about being fair rather than being nice.
