Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

I'm enjoying all the back and forth trolling, but there's one thing I can't figure out - Is Yak trolling or is he posting in earnest.

Yes, and I'm confident I would proceed in exactly the same way in that situation as I am now.

There are people ITT who have a problem with AOC because of her politics. I'm not one of them.
So, any time a nominee compels a bunch of people to vote for them that are notable in some area outside of what, being a hot actress or model, the rules should be changed to ensure they can't win?

Whatever, you and everyone else knows it's silly at this point, enjoy the rest of the contest. Care to spoil the suspense and let us know who you're going to decide on?

I probably have as many posts in OOT as lektor has total posts, but am not allowed to vote. Cool contest you have here. Why not just pick the winner you want?

Obviously this is completely stupid and wrong as others have echoed, assuming it's not a troll. It would be like deciding Trump can't be president because many people who voted for him just wanted to "trigger the libtardz," or UK should run Brexit twice because someone drove a pro-Brexit bus around London with inaccurate cost figures plastered on the side, or retroactively awarding a WSOP bracelet to that girl whose AA was mucked by that idiot dealer.

It goes without saying that under a Dids regime this nonsense would never have occurred, his loss continues to be the worst humanity has suffered since the Justice Golden Child was murdered.

The kind of people you mentioned can be added to the list if they suddenly become interested in this competition.

People in other subforums note this and recommend fans of this person vote for her
Therefore, change the rules arbitrarily so that this interesting person doesn't win

It seems like we're adding new people. I'll +1 Emily Blunt and also nominate Elisabeth Shue (Cocktail era or The Saint era are both fine), Mischief era Kelly Preston, and late Party of Five era Jennifer Love Hewitt.

What an entertaining thread this has been the past 24 hours. If people think AOC winning this year is a troll, they will be in for quite the surprise when Nancy Pelosi wins Ms. OOT 2019

just did some quick analytics and AOC is still the -900 favorite over the field, down from -50000 before the rule change.

Spend majority of my time in oot when not in SE (epl thread), but can't vote going forward since I'm only interested in supporting one contestant. Makes sense.

Me: I've only rooted for the Rams all season and haven't watched other games I don't care about.

Lektor: mid-season nfl rule change. You can only watch the last two games if you had previously watched at least 4 other games that you didn't at all care about.

Lektor,

FWIW, I believe you actually arenít out to get AOC, and simply are trying your best to adhere to the spirit of the contest.
