    This poll sucks, someone nominates someone and don't even vote for them.

    Sorry Bobby, whom did I miss that a) posts regularly b) didn’t decline?

    Did I misunderstand?

    Whom did you nominate?

    I was not talking about me. The poll had been up more than a day and one person had not even got a vote. If you nominate someone you should at least vote for them. Just my thought. Nothing personal toward you Ms.Spin.

    Whenever I nominate somebody it's just a cover for my real vote, which is always Bobby of Tulsa.

    So you just throw your vote away, If I got that anyone looking for me would have to come to the Byob because I would stay completely in there for the whole month and would only talk about cheap beer and Mezcal or not sleeping and dreaming crazy dreams and wishing my friends well.

    BoT? There's some suspicion that one of the nominees is a sock-puppet for a now banned member. A "big" "member."

    If that's true - and Pax if it isn't - then the nomination was perhaps ironically intended...

    Au contraire, mon ami, a vote for Bobby of Tulsa is NEVER wasted!

    If I started a poll for BROTHM right now, you would win in an historic landslide.

    You know it's true.

    I have seen more than one person through the years get a nomination and not one single vote, So it appears the purpose of the nomination is for embarrassment or humiliation. Not a good way to treat people in my opinion.

    I think, BoT, that one can nominate a person ... and then when you see someone else's name crop up think "Damn, what an awesome idea." Not that your first thought wasn't good, but that the subsequent nominee seemed the right person for the time.

    Now, one can argue that regardless, making the nomination was a commitment. I think that's what you're saying, and I'd mostly agree ... especially when we're talking about a serious election to a responsible public office.

    But anyone who remembers my various turns as BROTM won't have mistaken my tenures as anything "responsible".

    I apologize if my post upset anyone. I have my days and my thoughts and some times I just say them. Not making any excuses it is just who I am at this point in my life.

    No apologies necessary, my friend. I'm sorry if it felt like I was taking a whack at you - not my intention at all.

    Bilge Rat of the Month? My experience with bilge rats is you want to watch out for the last one off before things go sideways. They probably have secrets.

    C'mon Tulsy.... how do you think I feel? I nominate someone and they don't even make it onto the slate of candidates!!! Too busy fondling his folders, he says. Too busy admiring his own scales, he claims. Too busy Zooming (who's zooming who?). The real truth is... he just wants more rum-sipping time!! <G>

    Who has cast that suspicion? Mine is that he is, rather, skaraborgcraft.

    I'll also attempt stylish elan.

    If anyone's interested.

    I'm in strange shape these days. This could get interesting. And also be a catastrophe.

    Should fit the times we are in no matter, right?
