Arghh...what a tough decision.
I am abhorrent to have a disqualification in the quarterfinals for the following reasons:
-It's the quarterfinals.
-An effort was made to make the situation known and a request for a working solution was made well ahead of time. This is exactly the type of
concession for real life that semper and I are talking about, everytime someone just bails on a tournament.
-This is an online tournament that will effect the world in absolutely no way shape or form if it starts on the 6th or a week and a half later.
So my solution is one of the following:
Postpone one debate or all of them. I know this may not be a popular decision as I am anxious to get the tournament going (namely so I can feel
comfortable challenging some folks...
) but I see no reason not to accomadate an earnest effort.
