    Hey Smiley, can you bump number 25 on my list up to number I-bet-you-can-guess, and remove number 18. I'm being quite serious. Ta.

    Actually on second thoughts there are quite a few revisions I want to do. Better send an email and do it properly.

    Personally, I think it's pretty silly when people edit picks and they drop someone that they originally had up very high and instead of shuffling everyone down one spot, the player vanishes completely off the list.

    Number 18 deserved it. They'll cruise in regardless.

    yeah then please send in an email
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Wouldn't surprise me to see some major shocks in the list this year. The way many of the comments in the thread have gone, it seems that quite a few people are leaving out some big names on the assumption that everyone else will vote for them and they'll get in anyway. If there's a lot of that happening then we could end up with some major players not getting many votes.

    And if it happens to Miller, I can't be held responsible for my actions.

    Possibly The Sean, possibly.

    On an similar note - Whenever someone just writes Miller, I've been sharing the votes between Keith, Colin and Geoff dry:

    actually a player needs to be voted by at least 4 people in order to break into the top 25 so this year the list should be safer

    ****ing joke.

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    that was decided earlier on after getting in some suggestions from the members.

    What was your take on this?

    To keep it simple, 25 points down to 1 point, worked perfectly last time.

    As I previously said:

    Any attempt at removing players is unnecessary censorship IMO and ensures the list doesn't end up as what it purports to be.

    How do you come to the conclusion in bold?
