    No winners.

    This contest's threshold: 12 points
    Next contest's threshold: 10 points.

    This means that because no one scored more than 12 points, there are no "winners." In the next contest, if even one person scores more than 10 points, then there are 3 winners.

    We hope to wean people off of personal attacks in this way.

    First number is your score; second number is the number of complaints posted in the contest thread:

    Chico, 2.5/3
    DarrylS, 5/9
    DocHoliday, 7/8
    Hebeill 3/6+4.5 carried from last contest=7.5
    HolyDiver, 1/1
    JackBauer, 9/13
    Khayos, 1/1
    Mrs.P, 5/11
    Patra, 1/3
    PatriotReign, 0.5/1
    Patters, 1/2
    PF13, 1.5/6
    PFinVA, 2.5/6
    UKPat37, 1/1
    Wolfpack, 11.5/22

    Some notes:
    - Keep in mind that moderators are still free to use the tools at their disposal to reign in or stop personal attacks.
    - Misspelling "which" with "witch" will in the future be a personal attack; calling a forum member a liar is a personal attack; calling something they wrote a lie is not.

    Next time please leave my name, score, etc. out of this childishness. You can play...I choose not to.

    I really don't give a rat's arse about any of this.

    Did you announce prior to the contest that there would be a threshhold of 12?

    I broke the above list down into what I consider the solid liberal regulars and the solid conservative regulars, and I can't help but notice the liberals scored 32.5 to only 15 for the conservatives.

    Before anyone chimes in with the notion that there's 7 liberals on my list versus only 4 conservatives, it should be noted that 2 of the forum's regular conservatives aren't even on the list at all, thus scoring a 0, so IMHO it's 7 liberals totalling 32.5 versus 6 conservatives totalling 15.

    Guess that proves where most of the venom on this board comes from. And I think we all know to whom most of it is directed.

    that would be... you. Well, a plurality of the venom -- and by your count, you account for 2/3 of the rightie venom all by your lonesome.

    It would be a hell of a lot more if anybody were as glued to the contest as you. I wish I had the time to put into it... I can only imagine how your math would look if every "librul" posted 5 pages of nothing just in case 1 sticks.PFnV

    There should also automatically be negative points for those pretending or trying to be intellectuals.:D

    for the record when one discusses opinion rather than seeking trouble neither person or persons in the debate get any infractions. I am not on the list nor do I post any complaints - try it you might like it.

    I do not go into any discussion thinking someone needs to agree with me.
    I truly do not care if they agree or not - I expect them to give their true opinion - I like that.
    If everyone agreed with me I might as well have a conversation with myself - oh the boredom.

    If it truly was liberals having problems with conservatives there would be many more complaints across the board. So how about we add up all the complaints and see what % of the complaints have you as the accused and how many have you as the accuser. Without even reading through the contest thread I'd guess to say you're member name appears in many/most.

    it is what it is Wolf ... it's the choice you make not the choice that is given to you.

    If you feel a need to be right all the time then a discussion forum is not the place to be.

    Also if you truly care about fairness legislation - you might want to give being a liberal a try.
    Maybe you're a liberal in a closet and you need to come out of that closet LOL.

    I agree 100%. Anybody trying to be intellectual should immediately lose some fraction of a point. Then everybody would try to be more intellectual, hoping their totals would be closer to be 0.

    Wait PR -- did you in fact mean to say the opposite of this?

    Do you think I'm acting all intellectual to point this out?

    That's kind of funny.

    Oh I admit that out of the conservatives in here, I'm the one most likely to be the victim of personal attacks. But this contest proves that which I've been saying all along and reiterated during the last contest: I only dish out roughly half the venom that gets thrown my way.

    Some other people in this forum have conniptions anytime someone looks at them the wrong way, when fact is they receive but a tiny fraction of the personal attacks I receive. :rocker: :rocker:
    Please don't worry about that, my friend. Your wife is very much glued into the contest, and certainly engaging in that strategy of "post everything, see what sticks."

    Good Lord, if I made that statement or something along the lines, I'd be permanently banned. :rolleyes:

    I actually consider the impication a personal attack but, as the contest proves, personal attacks against me are hardly a rarity in these parts.
