I'd have given Screwy a 3.5. The 3.5 through pure earnestness and desire to please people.

I think Screw's good years were a little before your time. Long before the superthreads, at least.

I knew of him. At first he pissed me off (don't remember why), then I was kind of indifferent, then I thought he was a pretty good guy who knew music pretty well, then I thought he was a little odd (ST era), and now I'm ignoring him.

I expected Wayne to get slammed. But yeah, the pool has been pretty good. I'm also not saying that I think Screwtape should have been slammed; I would have probably given a similar or slightly lower mark, but I would have gone about the review quite differently. Hell, I just about would have written a book to the guy, and if he reads this and wants a critique from me, I'd be happy to give it. I still like him. I just don't like what he has done recently. I look forward to the day when I stop ignoring him.

He was at his best when he didn't say anything at all and just let the music he liked speak for him. I didn't like that music much, but at least he didn't come across as he does now.

You know, I was reading over my drunkposting earlier, and I realised that I don't even need to ask for a review. PFan may have just outdone any review the rest of you could write with one single sentence.

It's funny because it's true.

Pfan, do you want the GAF review, or should I pass it off to NSW?

NSW's a big fan of GAF's rising stock. He sees Tremendous Upside Potential. I'd let him go for it.

So it shall be done.

Not sure who to assign Cin to. Do you want to field that one, Ax?

Is Ax even writing reviews? If so, I'd let him take it. If not, give that one to Mia.

We should allow freelance reviews, from the right sources anyway.

Hm. I don't think it would be anything terribly interesting if I did.

I'd love to do reviews. I'd just be ... very harsh a lot of the time (though not to cin).

My job is to, first and foremost, assign the person who knows whoever it is that's going to be criticized best so the rating will be as accurate as possible. If it's a tie, choose the person whose review would be most entertaining. You know her best, and I'm sure Mia's review wouldn't be anything terribly controversial either.
