So, now I understand how folks got selected for the freebie, which from what I understand still provides nothing for limited posters such as myself.


Thanks for the note back and my apologies for the delay in replying. It's true that we weighted activity during recent months. We also had some more qualitative meeasure like rec-post ration, top most rec'd posts, most favorite Fools, etc.

This isn't perfect, we know, but short of trying to hand pick (which I believe would have been worse), we chose a rule set of sorts that we thought would achieve our goals.

It didn't cover everyone that I might have personally hand picked if I had the chance, but it was pretty good. I'm sorry you ddin't receive one, but I do hope you continue to join us, even if only for the good golf stories :)
