see, THAT is the conundrum. what if EVERY judge gave that sample a six? do you really need a comment card, really? my comment would be "take a class". or read and learn more here.
but i don't know what the other judges scored, and it doesn't matter.
OR if only one did score a 6, and the rest were nines, would YOU change anything because of what one judge thought? i think not.
