I also think lektor has actually done a pretty reasonable job given the constraints.



In the spirit of reconciliation, I will abstain from voting, now that my voting rights have been justly reinstated.

I think it is immoral, rugby, for you to not exercise your given voting rights.

Rugby, my plan is to sandbag and vote if needed to splode bundy5’s head. Chill wit me.

Also, LektorAJ has been cool under fire. His stock went considerably up in my view, even tho he is running a problematic, sexist little contest.

You should be thanking your lucky stars for 2009, otherwise your year would be dead last!

Meanwhile, Lektor's milkshake has brought all the voters to the yard.

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

"His year" was actually 2016, when he first took over, which gave us our greatest Ms OOT ever, who has reigned for over 2 years.

He also gave a special exemption for someone to compete in back to back years, showing his obvious bias, that person being:

I correctly checked voters' eligibility according to the rules Lektor asked for and stated in his 1/14 post when he asked for help recently. Both JonnyA and I confirmed those terms of his, and our posts and Lektor's have been re-quoted multiple times itt to prove that is what Lektor was asking for. It's not my fault that he unethically changed the rules yet again, to get the results that he wants. For all we know, tomorrow he's going to change the rules again. Voter eligibility should not keep changing though.

It has nothing to do with being a protected class, and everything to do with fairness and right and wrong. Take race out of it if that's too controversial for you, and replace it with some other arbitrary group. For example:

1) All posters whose usernames start with A-K are disqualified from voting, and only those whose usernames start with L-Z are allowed to vote.1

2) That's wrong and immoral, they should be allowed to vote!

3) Fine, fine, if any person whose username starts with A-K really wants to vote, they can speak up and ask nicely in a non-voting thread, but we're still gonna post notices in every voting thread that those posters are not allowed to vote.

Is (3) a fair solution to the problem in (1)?


1That's not too far off from what Lektor did, since regardless of his intention, his 1/13 rules change disqualified not just Politics posters who don't post in OOT, but also more than half of OOT, including longtime regs and many of OOT's best posters.

AOC has a -24 handicap according to Lektor's latest voter suppression numbers. So that matchup is within 2 votes aorn.

Is the score updated anywhere, or do we just wait until it's over and then he tells us who won?

Absolutely.

Me: This contest is nuts and you all take it way to seriously.

Also me: WHAT DO YOU MEAN I CAN'T VOTE?? THIS WILL NOT STAND!

Lektor responding with a series of polite and rational decisions has left me feeling more than a little sheepish.

He posted this, this am:

However, he has mistakes in his AOC voter disqualifications previously in the Group A round (he disqualified a number of AOC voters who meet all the eligibility requirements, not just by the original rules, but by his new rule changes as well.)

So I asked him:

The list of 21 disqualifications you posted in Group A has mistakes in it.
He hasn't replied though, and I rather doubt he will.

This is good because after I'll break it down further into those that have either posted the majority of their posts in politics and no other forum including OOT or those that have only voted for AOC and no other contestant to see how genuine this win really is.

LektorAJ is a powerhungry thug who cares more about pursuing his personal political vendettas than miss oot as an institution or oot as a community

As a true OG, this is accurate. Some shameful ****. Also, lol at letting bundy post freely anywhere. Thought he was perma’ed. He’s all-time type levels of bad on every subject ever in existence.

This is actually completely the opposite of what he is doing. All I see him doing is protecting the institution and integrity of the competition from it being influenced excessively from the politards.

Maybe we could combat some of the shameful sexism inherent in this contest by calling it Ma’am OOT.

You're on the voter list. The latest one is at the top of this thread.

There are obviously people it doesn't include. For example Lapka has more than 20 posts in OOT between 1 Jan 2018 and 29 Nov 2018 but isn't on the list. If she pops up and starts voting she will be added. If she doesn't then I don't see it as a problem that she's not on the list.

That way you can automatically pass through the 20+ posters, take a quick look to review the 10+ posters, and let ones with less than that make a case for their participation if they want to vote.
I'm willing to bow to the views of the more senior (and level-headed) members of the community such as you, Howard and so on if people think exceptions should be made for any of the following:
