In this paper, we give an overview of several recent proposals for non-admissible non-naive semantics for abstract argumentation frameworks. We highlight the similarities and differences between weak admissibility-based approaches and undecidedness-blocking approaches using examples and principles as well as a study of their computational complexity. We introduce a kind of strengthened undecidedness-blocking semantics combining some of the distinctive behaviours of weak admissibility-based semantics with the lower complexity of undecidedness-blocking approaches. We call it loop semantics, because in our new semantics, an argument can only be undecided if it is part of a loop of undecided arguments. Our paper shows how a principle-based approach and a complexity-based approach can be used in tandem to further develop the foundations of formal argumentation.
