Not predicting the outcome of either semifinal, but if the finals turn out to be Linus vs me, we may have to try to get SamCook to vote, and whoever gets Sam's vote concedes in embarrassment.

Concession wouldn't be official since the poll had opened, but since neither of us would want to win with Sam's vote, and other voters would understand that, we could count on them to do the right thing and vote against Sam's choice.

If not Sam, I volunteer to be the decisive vote. By the way, I think I will vote for Gandalf in the other semifinal. He's one of my favorite posters-- next to Linus, of course.

When I first said it the poll closing times had not been set in stone, they could have been changed to accommodate.

While we might or might not welcome your endorsement and vote, neither of us would feel nearly as embarrassed by your support as by SamCook's.

Right. So in other words, your plan made no sense unless the rules would have been changed. And once urysohn makes rules they are set in stone. So get over yourself, your plan made no sense.

IFYP, not implying that such eligibility could ever be parlayed into a victory.
