As for that newbii thingie; I am reminded of Yogi's immortal quote:

"It's deja vu all over again."

I too feel that I am covering ground already traversed: this time last year I was harping about what I am harping about now. Little has changed. TMF is holding hard to its belief that Top Poster has to have the attributes of content and I am arguing that other methods – bribery and coercion – have a valid point. Or, at least, whining has a place.

The problem, ~ray, is that TMF remains adamant that The Feste Award go to the person that typifies the aims of TMF and everyone know that GoofyHoofy reaches that and deserves the award yet where in this pantheon are those such as you, me, and Raggmopp?

Content, knowledge and aptness may be TMF's criteria yet consider those who, as us, make the filler that floats the boat. Take, for instance, any GoofyHoofy post – by what measure is it considered a good post but that it is compared to a not-so-good post. My posts, barely legible and barely readable and barely having any semblance to grammar and linguistic veneer are a base line by which a better poster – such as Goofy – stands out.

I believe there should be a measure – a base line, if you will – that defines best by being worst. The Feste Award Third Class witch Palm Cluster is a measure of worse. Not that I'd refuse the honor yet I would like to be placed in position vis a vis the winner of The Feste Award association. Even the nadir is acceptable.

I believe that TMF in its recognition of the best – and you have to agree that Goofy leads the best – has to also recognize that there is a spectrum of worse to best that defines best. Without fluff how can one recognize solidity? There should be a cognition of the value – yes, value – of inane if but to place in reference to what isn't inane. I am inane and by my inanity I elevate those having ability – such as Goofy – to elevations only relative to the baseline of inanity. For this fact alone I should be awarded The Feste Award Third Class with Palm Clusters.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You are too too kind. Really. Having had my 15 minutes of fame more times than one should really have same [the story of the Police sweep resulting in my being locked in a bar with a patrol of Chinese Hookers will have to wait for another day] I will forego any further recognition from "the boys". Merely having my picture permanently mounted on TMFs dartboard is ample enough reward. : Þ

Y.O.S.
