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
If your point is 'people don't manipulate', I disagree.
If your point is 'people should not manipulate', I agree.
If your point is 'we should assume that people don't manipulate, and go ahead having blind faith in people', I disagree.
If your point is to teach me not to manipulate, don't bother - because I don't manipulate.

Edit: BTW even if I don't fully agree with the methodology, don't think that I am discouraging you from the project - which should be fun if nothing else (and should yield correct results if your assumption of 'everybody is honest' comes true in this particular case accidentally).

Golly, we're all taking this, and ourselves, a trifle seriously aren't we? Just because someone* voted for DR Jardine as their no.1 cricketer of all time, so that he snuck into the CW list at - gasp! - number 50, some people are getting their knickers in a most almighty twist.
"Manipulation! Dishonesty! What about the sanctity of our list?"
Give me a break.
Sent... but spent half an hour making a top 50 before i realised i needed only 25

Sent. Probably missed out on some obvious names and on any given day may vote differently.

Trying to find the list I did a couple of years back, top 5 not changed I don't think but have probably moved more to judging players on wider cultural impact and such things.
I more or less gave the same list I gave to Sean. Some differences for e.g. Imran is some 5-6 spots higher. I hope the write-ups are good; Sean did an excellent job last time round.
