I like to win as much as the next person, but a competition where the results aren't even close are rarely fun for anyone, certainly not the people who have no chance at all.
i agree completely with you, it´s not fun to win when you don't actually have to try, and this kind of post is the kind that draws in attention, and i will follow your advice, as it currently applies it seems,and also thank you for replying in a polite manner

You can't say it's a "you win, but you don't" situation, when the criteria for 'victory' are clearly outlined when you sign up to much more than "most points wins", and have been further clarified since: we simply are not bossing one particular parameter, required in this contest to win.
the other people i have interacted with in this community, offset you, and i am glad for it, but personally, you need to not approach every situation as if i´m trashing your way of life, because if you are doing so, then you can say you yourself are doing the "american" way of thinking, don't just outright assume, and stop being so defensive, you have 300 nukes, but you are mad 1 person gets 1?Edited by cytrik - 5/21/12 at 2:01pm
