Why? They both rely on figments of imagination to maintain their role in life.

After four days of voting, the rate of new votes being cast has slowed significantly. In the main event, Will Beback has succeeded in narrowing the gap somewhat, with 50 points to Fæ's 60 -- but can he close it before all the votes are cast? Can his thrust to become the supreme WP:DICK spurt at the last minute, or will he lose his election?

In other events, it looks like Will's Retinue has the edge in the Tag-Team match, with the Article Rescue Squadron, the FAC Cabal, and the Ultra-Zionists all tied for second place. For Miss Incongeniality, it is still WebHamster by a nose. For Vexatious Litigant, Ottava is straining to catch Will Beback but Will still looks safe to win that one. Alison has a comfortable lead for Straight Shooter, as does Peter Damian in the Cojones contest.

The real cliff-hanger race ought to be the TL;DR event, which has been a neck-and-neck battle between Ottava and Newyorkbrad, where NYB has just pulled into the lead with 24 votes. Somehow, because of the nature of the competition, it doesn't seem all that exciting.

My guess is that voting will close early next week, depending on the volume of votes cast this weekend. To paraphrase General Douglas MacArthur in his message to the Philippines, rise and vote!

There hasn't been a dramatic change in the standings of our contestants over the past 24 hours, so rather than deliver a blow-by-blow account, I'd like to say a few words about sportsmanship. I think it tells you something important about Life when you see Fæ and Will Beback, while locked in a competition for this pageant's most prestigious award, nonetheless acting as comrades-in-arms out there on the great battlefield of Wikipedia. I refer, of course, to Will's attempt to delete the RfC on Fæ. After all, what is really more important: personal recognition at an awards pageant, or keeping Wikipedia forever free as a platform for the dissemination of defamation and porn?

Not just porn, don't forget the gay porn. Very important.

I wonder if this book should have a "Mafias" chapter. Gay mafia, anti-LaRouche mafia, anti-Scientology mafia, Jewish mafia (and Palestinian mafia now), objectivism mafia, etc. etc.

It may seem like a minor point, but I think it is important not to conflate Judaism with Zionism. I don't believe that Wikipedia has a Jewish mafia.

Okay, "Zionist mafia". They fight a great deal among themselves anyway.

(Anyone remember this oldie but goodie?)

A Jewish mafia wouldn't work because we couldn't all email each other. I once took a picture of an amusing chess set I saw in the window of a religious shop in Golders Green and emailed it to various Jewish Wikipedians I had contacted in the past. I carelessly used the cc option and not the bcc one and got told off by more than one person because it meant that the Zionists could see the non-Zionists' email addresses and visa-versa.

I'd have done it again but mixed in the names associated with the email addresses.

Speaking of Zionists, today is Vanessa Redgrave's birthday! smile.gif

How do you say "Happy Birthday" in Hebrew?

The voting has slowed to a trickle, with no significant change in the respective standings of the contestants. So, let it be known that voting will close on Wednesday.

In the final days of voting, there are some contests which are still up for grabs. Our own Ottava is now making a bid for supremacy in two categories: the always exciting TL;DR event, where he has pulled into the lead with 27 votes to Newyorkbrad's 26; and Vexatious Litigant match, where he is breathing down Will Beback's neck with 23 votes to Will's 24. There's nothing like a home court advantage! And a recent acquisition to the WR stable, WebHamster, still leads the Miss Incongeniality race, although no one should count out Baseball Bugs or last year's winner, Ottava. Those last straggling members of the Academy who have not yet voted will make all the difference in these three contests.

Ottava has definitely launched his final assault, and is now tied with Will Beback for Vexatious Litigant, in addition to maintaining his slim lead in the TL:DR event. Today is the last day for voting, and one or two members of the Academy will decide these two exciting contests.

I'm keeping it open for a few more hours in case someone comes along to break the tie for Vexatious Litigant.
