    Internet Pet Peeves - Sorry Sixteen

    “Twitter is the spit on the sidewalk of life.”
    "I haven't heard of any limit to cross-flexing. But, like the regular flexing, it's going to be used quite sparingly. "

    When I didn't see any poll listing, I thought it was an inside joke that went over my head.

    How the heck did " moderator bias " and " feedback complainers " make the final sixteen when they have no victories in the preliminary rounds.

    It is this kind of inconsistency and high-handedness which has made TrackForum such a difficult place for participants recently. Aren't there rules which everybody has to follow when publishing a poll? Some of us have spent countless hours weighing the options before expressing a preference and now the statistical validity of the results seems destroyed.

    In future I will refuse to participate in these travesties.

    Thinking about the “Jumped the Shark” choice, I will admit all week at a school we were all debating what was going to happen on the show to finish the episode and even rearranged this frog rock sculpture as a contest you had to jump over off of the jungle gym platform.
