Seems as though having read politics the issue has reached breaking point with Mason weighing in.

This guy has only 9 in 2018 but 100 total since 2015, good range of different threads, do we give him an exception?

Yes, but much less fun.

Seriously the main reason though is to stop potential brigading.

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

Howard,

I have noticed you take general posts personally sometimes. I know from my own side that it is a misunderstanding of my intent occasionally. It’s not uncommon, I do it too, and was even called out for it recently. The reason I am telling you is to perhaps reduce your agitation a little.

Your friend,
JT

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

JT,

Iím not even slightly agitated by jman or his post, but rather simply curious. His post is a specific example of a debate phenomenon that is almost universally unproductive, which is to assume someone elseís motivation. Thatís so for several reasons ó first, because the point doesnít address merits and is a form of fallacy, but second because it is unfalsifiable. Jman is heavily involved in the current issues over in politics, and may find this point to be of some use.

No jimmies rustled here, sir.

There is a certain amount of tongue in cheek that is being missed at times. Itís more light hearted than it is being given credit. I am not trying to imply you are being hysterical, Iím saying even the mild agitation may be misplaced.

It is creepy that a 90 something year old man is so heavily invested in a hotness contest of 20 and 30 year old females.

By the rules that have always been in place up until this week, I'm qualified more than 50 times over.
Lektor trying to build a resume for his ultimate move to the states and get his dream job as a voter supression consultant.

ONE ACCOUNT ONE VOTE!

Gimmicks and previously banned accounts should nog be allowed. Otherwise all votes should count.

What were official vote totals for each E8 matchup? Interested to see a breakdown of the different matchups.

Right. I didn't really do official totals, I was just checking as I went along and I was finding that ineligible voters were only a real problem both for and against one particular candidate and the other 3 matches had very clear winners. I just checked previously unseen voters appearing in the different matches. Retroactively applying the current eligibility list we would get:

Garcia 50-0=50 Underwood 98-5=93
Mudd 54-2 = 52 Beer 101-4=97
Ocasio-Cortez 178-54=124 Riley 133-17=116
Miniutti 56-1=55 Soberano 99-6=93

It's kind of interesting that R. Riley would have only had 4 ineligible voters (based on the same current list) in the S16 round but as soon as she's up against AOC a load of extra ineligible people come and leave drive-by votes for her (presumably against AOC) but they're a lot more quiet about it.

Interesting to see who drives in the votes. Seems like AOC vs Beer could've been the Final as they appear to have the strongest support.

Re: Ms. OOT 2018 Discussion thread.

Lektor,

What was the AOC-Robbie tally? Thatís where Iíd have expected her to lose (or earlier, donít remember her competition) without any voting shenanigans. However, I think she should win on her merits out of this group of 8.

Still waiting on repechage details to give Emily blunt a well-deserved second chance in this yearís contest!

It's not really possible to tell. Based on the current eligibility list:

Robbie has 119 votes on the eligible list and 3 on the ineligible list and 15 on neither list.

AOC has 108 on the eligible list, 42 on the ineligible list, and a further 66 on neither list.

People on neither list are people who didn't cast 4 or more votes in the earlier stages and haven't voted in the E8. I suspect a lot of them would be ineligible, but I'd not be surprised if AOC had the votes among them to overtake Robbie if we were to go user by user and check eligibility.

If you mean based on the rules at the time, we never checked it exactly but we'd checked enough to see that AOC had won. There were still about 60 accounts to check IIRC.
