        Mark, Kate and all:

        I was not making an announcement, I was merely parroting back what I was reading as consensus at the time. In fact, the way I prepared the list of nominees, the rules and the FAQs was to cut and paste from all the emails I read.

        My regrets to anyone who thought/thinks that I was laying down the law. That was neither my wish nor intention.

        Should we start a list of top 100 polling methods and vote on the best one? :-)

        I would be willing to volunteer to tabulate the votes in whatever manner is decided upon.
