BETTERS, Due to manipulation by deleting approximately 36 posts between 22:16 and 22:46 03/15/01, Misc. will probably never pass B&R. At 18:33 Misc. was behind B&R by 2 posts and again behind by 4 posts at 22:16. I wish to apologize to all betters for any inconvenience and anticipation regarding their bet. I should have realized this could have happened right from the beginning. Any future overtaking if it occurs is flawed for the above reasons and unfair to all betters. There can be no legitimate "winner". I consider the contest over. JD

Right. The PRM is disbanded anyway, which makes the whole issue moot.

Nice try though. It was an interesting and generous thing you tried. While I didn't enter a guess I'll be happy to help keelhaul who ever deleted stuff.

I was hoping to be there for the event, but bedtime came. When I gave up and went to bed it was down to 3 or so and I expected Misc to overtake B & R overnight.

It was a fun diversion while it lasted and let me also add my thanks, Jack, for the generous offer.

Interesting curiosity: My wager was also my birthday (I'm not saying what year) and time.

Great minds must think alike. http://media5.hypernet.com/~dick/ubb/smile.gif

I finally looked at this thread. I thought JD was suffering from an inferiority complex

Can anybody tell if this tampering came from Florida?

I still think misc will pass up B&R at some point. Some many questions have already been answered it's hard to come up with a new topic that can't be answered with "check the forum search feature".

Don't feel badly, Jack. It was fun.

Sir Stephen, the instigator of all this, has capitulated, which makes the question of who has the most posts moot. Building/Repair has magnanimously allowed him to keep his knighthood, but the People's Republic of Miscellaneous has disbanded. It all really wasn't about how many posts each group had, it was about being called "vile scum." It's time to move forward. In the immortal words of B/R, "Long live shavings, googe and scarfing jigs!"

Well, since I picked the Ides, never tried to manipulate with deletions, and restricted my posts to a minimum, I feel robbed!
Oh, well. I have nowhere to hang a painting anyhow.

PRM hasnt disbanded. We've merely gone underground and now have really cool secret rituals!
