Yep mot, I agree. In the government, they have a similar rule. Not only can you not have a 'conflict of interest', you cannot have 'the appearance of a conflict of interest'. It is a much higher bar for when maintaining confidence in the process is critical (such as contract negotiations).
I nom Holdolin, for some truly amazing MW and PG numbers (shoot, I need to fire up MW asap!).
I also nom WFeather, as even though he isn't eligible yet, he needs the full 12 months of opportunities to get a win!
Lets use these last 42 minutes to do something constructive - taunt WFeather. I heard he had THREE COLD CPUS* during the biggest F@h competition of the year.l Can you believe that? Simply scandalous.
