I'd like to hear more on your opinion in this type of situation. Would you be saying that mandingo's entries should not be given the status of outright losers? If it's my opinion that one of his entries should win, what should I do about it to be fair?
I'm asking you these questions in all sincerity. I feel like I'm in a bit of a bind in this regard, and would appreciate others opinions in this type of situation.
I'm not a long timer on this site, but I can only imagine that this has happened before.
So let me hear from you, or others, so that I can feel better about this whole thing.
My own feeling is to honor the notion that the funniest comic (in my opinion), should win, no matter who wrote it. If I am to accept some other principle in the area of judging, I would want to hear more about it.
I have thought about a 'horse race' form of judging, where a certain comic is told to be the frontrunner, and each subsequent entry is judged next to it on a daily basis.
Anyway, please do give me your thinking.
