Default 2006 Palimpian of the Year

"Hurray!" I hear you all cry. "It's that time of year again!"

Following the excitement last year, I thought it only appropriate to reopen old wounds and run the Palimpian of the Year contest again. Sorry, HP, but your reign is over!

The poll will close on Christmas Eve, and the winner annointed with the special Palimpian trophy on Christmas Day.

Here's the trophy, which HP has been sporting for the last 12 months:



Don't try and tell me it isn't worth getting excited about.

So, without further ado, here is the shortlist and the reason for nomination.

wshaw - for never giving up in any religion-based threads

bakunin_the_cat - for being sorely missed from the Palimp

amarie - for grumpiness beyond the call of duty

Diggerbot - a joint award for a spectacularly enjoyable BDO in Oxford

Leyla - for the year's most spectacular post-count accumulation.

Let the voting, sniping and Palimp-resignations begin!!!!

Hmmm.

Obviously I shouldn't be voting for myself, but would voting for Digger be cheating in this case...?

Vote for whoever you like, Db! There really is no pride involved in this contest at all!

I'm only just realising that HP's trophy isn't a symbol of self-agrandisement after all. Ma'am, I can hardly wait to see what face you will present to the world come the end of your reign...

Oh my, this again. It would be interesting if one of us agreed to a term of voluntary exile in honor of RC's spectacular flame out. It could be the beginning of our very own Palimp-religion, complete with esoteric scapegoating rites.

Haven't heard the RC story and was wondering what happened there. The posts are not available to read the flameout. What happened? I thought perhaps the person passed away.

The posts are not available? Maybe I shouldn't say, but... the people have a right to know the truth!
[Edit: I believe Wavid linked to the posts in question in the initial post of this thread.]
As I recall, RC was winning the Palimpsester of the year contest. He objected. I guess he felt it was done in bad faith somehow. In protest he left and vowed never to return. Up to now he has proved a man of his word.

Will read that link. I assumed it was a lot of good natured fun at HP's expense. Thanks.

Edit: Oh my I haven't laughed so hard in a long while.

Oh Wavid, you didn't exactly make it easy for us did you? How to choose just one? I vote for bak, because I miss him, but 'twas a mere hair's breadth between the nominees. Had the wind been blowing in another direction it could've been any one of the others.
