This shouldn't have happened until 12/21/2012...

There is just WAY to much to read. Just let me know who gets fired or leaves when it's all over.

BTW, does this mean that 2010 Average will go up some if someone gets kicked out??? Hmmmmmm

Also, is it possible to tell the truth if your lying in bed??? You ponder that for a bit and get back to me.

What are you - 12?


What is your problem? I'm NOT HAPPY! I have a right to move on if I'm not happy with what is going on! I think the comment was uncalled for!


then why are you still here? this is a classic example of why people create goodbye threads, its like wishing you could see who was at your own funeral

I'm deeply offended that anyone would think my arrogance and tyranny is the result of success. Hmph!

Well, before this thread is locked I would like to say I've been reading it from the start & I'm very impressed with the passion, dedidcation, interest, & time people are willing to put into this. Some of you are so verbally adept, you are a pleasure to read. I hope this works out well for everyone & we can return to our regular programming soon.

That's an interesting comment right there... but I guess, merits according to whom?

Wow, I agree that's a telling statement.

According to the voters, probably. It did sound a bit harsh the first time I read it, but when I realized he was talking about the voters, I understood.

When 31_F.gif silverfoxx first started I gave her 10, 10, 8, 9, 10, 8, 10, 9 and then 31_F.gif grigrigirl had a run of 9, 10, 10, 10, 9, 10, 10, 10. These people are artists, and they were exploring a particular avenue, and I was right there with them.

This is totally expected and generally not the only thing we look for. Almost everyone involved in this had evidence beyond just their voting patterns (login behavior, site behavior, password hashes, etc). We don't just scrutinize voting patterns to determine who may be violating rules.

Anyway... emails and a follow-up is forthcoming. This thread will likely be locked afterwards and then we can move on with league play.

Nice. Now who wants to be on my team? I suck!

SC you just want to be in control so again I say: When great success brings with it arrogance and tyranny instead of humility and consideration the dawn of fall and self-destructions becomes imminent.

HighNooner, you've now said it three times in this thread, if people were going to agree with you, they would have done it by now. Unless you're talking about Scalvert, of course, then we agree. :-P KIDDING!!!

Boy, 21.gif pointandshoot could keep you busy with that for a while ;)

I'm in no hurry to do anything. I wasn't going to cancel my account anyway (all those pretty pictures!), but I must caution you that I will always be vulnerable to this sort of accusation. When 31_F.gif silverfoxx first started I gave her 10, 10, 8, 9, 10, 8, 10, 9 and then 31_F.gif grigrigirl had a run of 9, 10, 10, 10, 9, 10, 10, 10. These people are artists, and they were exploring a particular avenue, and I was right there with them. I require a certain amount of trust. I've been a bit dismayed myself at how often I pick 21.gif pointandshoot for ribbons, and amazed at how long his streak is, but I have reasons for the way I vote, and I will gladly bore any skeptic for pages about those reasons if they're interested. Pick any of my 10s and I'll write you an essay on why I gave it a 10. The reasons are about the images, not the people.

I'm not storming off or holding grudges. I'm waiting to hear what the SC comes back with.

That people can believe the results of some sums over the clear and obvious evidence of their own eyes beggars belief. Just read a few of Don's posts anywhere here, or look at his images, or even simply COUNT the number of his comments ...

F**k it, and you all.

Hey we are serving drinks at the Staying/leaving party if you want to come and have some fun before you head out!!!!


When I was a newb here I did the same thing. I read and kept up with a semi yearly drama around here that got pretty heated. As soon as I was worked up enough to chime in a say something like 'dudes, stop fighting, this is so not cool' there was another thread where everybody was hugging and drinking a lot. It was pretty confusing at the time, but very endearing now that I know you guys. Now where's the other thread, I need another rum and coke.

My apologies for, ummm, interjecting.. But if you might read a bit more thouroughly before throwing up yoru hands in (very vocal) disgust, you might see that the SC has already publicly stated that a reconsideration is (and perhaps, always was) likely.

I do apologize for saying so, but I feel this is a pretty shameful show of rashness (both upon yourself, and several others who have reacted hysterically..)

What this challenge was all about
Signature style
Was that a part of the plot? Read the description carefully (let's have some fun you say), and what this challenge was all about. Or was this a trick so you would collect more of your data and call people cheaters.
SC you just want to be in control so again I say: When great success brings with it arrogance and tyranny instead of humility and consideration the dawn of fall and self-destructions becomes imminent.

Bring ye votin record in with ye. We shall bind ye in it and throw ye in the pond. If ye float and live, then thy voting record marks thee as a nefarious 10-giver, and ye shall be put out. If ye sink and drown, ye are okay, and shall be marked as a "safe-voter" with a scarlet S, and no punishment shall be meted to thee.....

Hey would you all cut it out over here already. My score is dropping like a rock over in the Free Study because all my friends are running scared. I even doubled the usual payment and they still won't play.

Are we hugging now? Is it safe to come back to the thread?
