It's Casliber, not Casilber.
The three folks whose candidacies I labeled as jokes have all replied on this thread to challenge my assertion. If you took offense at my remarks, I apologize. I did not intend to hurt either your feelings or your chances of gaining votes in the election.
I consider a candidacy a "joke" if its purpose is other than for the candidate to serve a functioning role on the Committee in its tasks of resolving disputes on Wikipedia. George The Dragon wants to make a POINT about Jimbo's excessive authority, so he's not primarily interested in serving on the Committee. Kurt wants to dissolve the Committee, which he hopes to accomplish by sabotaging it from the inside. The Fat Man actually intends a serious campaign, but his humorous tone makes him sound like a joker even when he intends something seriously, so his campaign is a joke in my admittedly biased eyes.
So even if you all really want to win the election, and really think you have a chance, that doesn't really change my evaluation. That being said, I accept One's comment that I should not try to guess people's unstated intentions.
