I hope I don't sound like a complete moron here, but what is Fae's claim to fame? Is it a man or a woman (as far as we know)? I must have missed the threads where Fae is discussed.


this should give you a heads up on what's been going on

"And what's good for suspension bondage is also good for hogtie bondage." Wish I'd seen that before voting, enjoyable read.


I know that the Linguist will cringe and spit foam when I say this, but apparently I'm not doing a solid enough job of informing the Wikipedia Review community when I publish my (mostly) excellent news articles on Examiner.com.

And now with two days of voting, looks unstoppable with 52 points in the DICK division, trailed by Will Beback with 33 and Sandstein panting behind them at 21. Will is faring better in the Vexatious Litigant event, which he dominates with 17 votes to Ottava's 14, and in the fiercely contested Tag-Team competition, Will and his Retinue are in a dead heat with the Ultra-Zionists at 8 votes each. In that latter event, we cannot discount the possibility of a surge by either the Palestine Warriors or the Article Rescue Squadron, currently at 6 votes each, and the Climate Changers with 5 votes have also been very consistent competitors over the years. For Miss Incongeniality, the competition comes down to three leading contenders: WebHamster, presently ahead with 10, versus Baseball Bugs and perennial favorite Ottava at 9 each. Alison and Scott MacDonald are neck and neck for Straight Shooter, each having racked up 10 votes, and Peter Damian continues to dominate the Cojones competition with 11. Finally, Ottava is giving Newyorkbrad a run for his money in the TL;DR event, at 18 and 20 votes respectively.

When the voting is to end?

So that would be a [[Dick Trickle]]. Voting slowing down can be identified when it appears to be taking a smoke break. Illustrated here for clarity:

Now we have three days worth of voting to assess. Fæ appears to be a veritable juggernaut in the DICK category, with 58 votes to Will Beback's 45. But as the saying goes, it ain't over until the slim virgin sings (did I use that joke last year?) Meanwhile, in the Tag Team event, Will's team has surged ahead, tallying 14 votes with the Ultra-Zionists losing ground at 8. I sort of wish I had bent the rules and allowed a late inclusion of Hipocrite in Will's ensemble, since he is clearly a stalwart in Will's retinue. Well, maybe next year he'll get the recognition he craves. Then, on to the Miss Incongeniality match, where WebHamster manages to stay one step ahead of Ottava, 13 to 12 -- but watch out for Baseball Bugs at 11. For Vexatious Litigant, Ottava trails Will Beback 19 to 21. Alison has gained some ground in the Straight Shooter contest, with 15 votes to Scott MacDonald's 10. In the Cojones race, Peter Damian is still the man to beat, and in the TL;DR competition, Newyorkbrad maintains a slim lead over Ottava.

You mean "slime" lead......

Isn't it amazing, how many people are showing up to vote here (454 at the moment).
WR never gets that much individual traffic in a normal week. 90% of the posts are by the same 25-or-so users.

If Wikipedia thinks WR is such a horrible, evil forum, they why do they watch it like hawks? AND vote
on WR things like this? How many Wikipedia nerds are just as disgusted with the place as we are,
yet are terrified that if they participate in WR discussions, they'll be harassed on Wikipedia?

I think the actual number of voters is 57, because there are 8 categories so each individual casts 8 votes.

Yes, and I am surprised how very few people are voting here.

It would have been interesting, if the Straight Shooters proved themselves by undoing stupidity described here
Deleting good articles only because they were written by a banned editor reminds me Bolsheviks destroying many heritage sites only because they had connection to religion.

Hmm, now I'm wondering how the DICK vote has varied since 2007. When the poll is closed I'll make a nice chart.
