Anita, I think the rules of the game on discussion lists state that
successful postings are the ones which generate the most responses. I
thought your top 25 did very well. Unfortunately, Big Brother Bill has
banned the two most effective good-posting stratagems: trolling (hardboiled
fiction sucks! cozies rule!) and fantasy movie casting (e.g., who do you
think should play each of the 250 corpses when Cain's Fast One is made into
a movie?).
