I've never said I'd vote to break a tie.

The difference is that you actually gave his list, a list you didn't like on paper, a chance, which is more than he's willing to give any list he doesn't like on paper. That makes you more fair than he, for he won't even give lists a chance, and to defend himself he'll squabble about regarding rules and the fact that he's not obligated to vote (you know, in any other round than one his list is present in, of course). Anyway, though, I'm almost as guilty as he is, because I'm not listening to his list and am voting against it. Less because I think I'll hate it (though I'm sure I would), but more because I can't stand it when people personally attack my playlist without actually having listened to it (and yes, saying it's not worth listening to is a personal attack on it, as he hasn't listened to it--if he actually listened to it, and then said it was shit, well that's a different matter altogether).

I think it should be standard practice in future DI lists, then, that everyone only vote for their own list. We'll see how the results end up.

While people are not forced to vote, I think it's fairly clear that I prefer everyone to vote, and for others not participating to listen and vote as well. I've always encouraged more participation.

In fact, I wish more people did a running diary of the playlists, too. People welcome feedback. I believe I am the only person who did a running diary for every single playlist.

I would have, but as I'm no longer allowed to post from work, I'd have to write my thoughts down while on my breaks and then report back here. Well that, and I listen in the car on the 40 minute drive to and from my fiance's house. So doing the running diaries while actually listening to the stuff is difficult for me, though I'm thinking for DI VI I will probably won't listen while in the car so I can make notes and report back here with my thoughts.

Anyway, I applaud you on giving feedback to all.

Going out of your way to insult and make fun of it is pathetic. To accuse me of rushing together a list is even more pathetic. I have said in the Running Diary Threads and my first match that I like my list and in fact it is one of my favorites of all the ones I've done. I knew people might not like it but you should make lists for yourself and I did. To set the facts straight, I knew Gibsongirl had a playlist ready or almost ready and I love her playlists. What people seem to not realize is that there was someone ahead of her that literally dropped out as I was uploading my playlist and getting ready to send it to Phanan. Don't accuse me of things that are not the truth.

You have already made up your minds about me. There is nothing I can say or do to stop you from making fun of my playlists. It is pathetic but you continue to do it. Grow up and vote against me. This other stuff is just embarrassing.
Based on you statements about losing all your music, it's not at all pathetic to suggest that your list was rushed. Actually listening to it (which I did, now regrettably) makes it sound even more rushed.

But the bottom line is, here you go again trying to make things personal, as if we spend all our hours trying to figure out the best way to insult Screwtape. And once again, you're acting like a child throwing a tantrum.

Telling us to grow up is like a pot calling the kettle black, only if the kettle wasn't black, just the pot was.

why bother submitting a playlist and entering the tournament if you don't plan on voting? political nominees still get out and vote, and one would hope when they submit their ballot they're not just voting on what they're nominated for. this isn't as important as mayoral and presidential elections of course, but it still is valid i think.

Now are you going to reply to what I said? Or is this just the classic Screwtape Dodge?

Oh, and just a note I failed to add earlier: downloading lists track-by-track (as you have to do with Screw's list) is a pain in the arse. Everybody, please, ZIP/RAR folders.

Would anybody be opposed to amending the rules accordingly?

And make sure they have no goddamn protected files either.
