Post by: dhruvdeepak on July 19, 2006, 07:47:34 AM
THE CRICKETVOICE SUMMER AWARDS      sponsored by k-slice


Note: This thread is a serious attempt to bring everyone together on this DG. Please do not use it to insult other members and please do not digress from the topic.

It has been four months since CricketVoice was launched into the cricketing DG-osphere and I feel that it is time to get everyone together to vote for members, for various awards that I will unveil below. This thread is a solemn attempt to get everyone participating, and to find out the public opinion on the Who's-who and What's-where of this little community of ours. I expect (rather I hope) that everyone will put a small amount of their time into this, and if they do, this will be a successful endeavor, and maybe a tradition that we can continue with in the future. I cannot over-emphasize that I am dead serious about this particular thread, and I request everyone to treat it accordingly. Please, do not let this become one of the 'SG vs GC' threads.

Initially, this thread will be a running prelude to the actual awards. I will start off with some of my suggestions and I would like everybody to contribute to:
The actual awards
The nominees
and obviously the voting (later on)

Good thread.

CricketVoice's most balanced views member (> 30 posts - qualifying criteria)
CricketVoice's top gourmet consumer (fight for this folks, dont let 'someone' win easily)
CricketVoice's most never-say-die member (ie. "really" thinking India gonna win when ind chasing 300 with 130-8)

Will throw in more later...above is just some random thoughts...others can comment whether to keep these or not.

Post by: k-slice on July 19, 2006, 08:28:23 AM
dd,
another thing i would like to suggest is instead of just you or any one person deciding the nominees have say a selectionn commitee of 5 people. that would remove personal bias as well to a large degree. make sure we get both pro and anti ex captain factions equally represented along with one mod. maybe kban?
Title: Re: The CricketVoice Summer Awards. VOTING BEGINS SATURDAY 29TH JULY 9AM EST
Post by: fineleg on July 19, 2006, 08:32:17 AM
since you are to poor dd to buy your own sticky. do you need the requisite 400 runs? i will be more than happy to send them to you ;D

DD will wage the WAR! Jaa Firaangi Jaa! But thats for another thread and another time when the army is strong enuf to crush tunter! Mrrrrruuuuuuaaahhh.

Post by: dhruvdeepak on July 19, 2006, 08:33:51 AM
My biggest hope for this thread is it should not have anything to do with ex captains or current coaches. i think your idea for a selection committee is great. i will post more (not kiran more) on this tomorrow after enough people have responded

PS can you transfer some funds (around 200) so i can stickify this thread
Title: Re: The CricketVoice Summer Awards. VOTING BEGINS SATURDAY 29TH JULY 9AM EST
Post by: fineleg on July 19, 2006, 08:36:23 AM
No need for selection committee IMO.
Let ppl nominate here, and DD-Kban (2 are enuf) can look at nominations and decide the final nominees.

And why is it called the "k-slice   Cricket voice Summer Awards".

Is he sponsoring the prize money ??

your shenanigans have forced me to reconsider the sponsoring deal. now relegated to 6 pt font on the 1st post. 400 runs is pocket change - you stole thousands.
and Best Thread is already up there as one of the categories for awards

ok in all seriousness lets actually have a reward of some sort for the winners. i dont mean cash(or runs) but maybe something else. i cant really think of anything right now but it owuld be nice to have something for the winners. atleast the winners of MVP etc.

Look at my paneer pulav posting and talk madam  ;D

And does your local bar have a drink you came up with ?  :D

where is the post on this paneer pulav? and don't tell me you buy the frozen paneer from the indian store for it!

since when did local pubs qualify for "gourmet"? that's where the riff-raffs hang out!

Depends on the pub :) And yes, frozen paneer. I have made paneer from the scratch once, but that was in India.  :)

Depends on the pub :) And yes, frozen paneer. I have made paneer from the scratch once, but that was in India.  :)

case closed and verdict : this shall be last sentence featuring sgusa and gourmet together.  ;D

here's a recipe for you for fresh paneer (time-tested etc.). use 250ml full-cream milk, 250ml skim milk, heat them together, when just about to boil, add 1 cup curd. it will separate - strain it through a cloth (if you can get hold of a paneer maker which is nothing but a perforated stainless-steel cylindrical contraption with a lid on top, it is even better!) and you get soft and robust paneer that may, just may elevate your paneer pulav to gourmet levels :-)

lol - i have hijacked this thread too - not my fault but it is that damn effect!




Thanks. I used Indira's recipe when i did it in India.

dude it isnt that hard when you go back packing straight after highschool. travelled all over europe, staying in student hostels or with friends i met at the united world college in india. then flew to asia, back packed some more, then down to australia. after graduating college, when most normal people look for jobs, i spen a summer bartending at a yuppie joint , saved money and went to south america to visit friends.
and as far as cooking goes i really wish that all of us could meet at some point in time. it would be nice to have mock cook some sambar, that we can add the the pasta i make from scratch from whole weat atta and follow it up with some sticky rice with mango.
ok puke that. but it really would be mad fun to drink some wine and cook with people from this Dg. hold on. is teddy still officially a member?

27 countries is cool. am hoping to arrive at that number within the next couple of years. counter stands at about 16 give or take one or two.
anyways, guys, dont delete posts, itz ok.
just put down your nominees, the more the better, because just 1 or 2 ppl posting them will ensure that ppl are missed out.

We will keep that one as it covers most of the idea you are suggesting (CV Legend) and we can have a 'CV Most Famous Quote'. CV Legend is a great idea actually

Great idea DD!
Applause!
But no nomination for CP!! Strange! ;D ;D
Let me add a category: The 'old stick in the mud' of this DG.
And my nomination is, who else but CP! ;D

I also suggest, lets do some secret voting for all categories. Lets create seperate polls for each category, with maximum possible representation. The counting will become easier. It will also be less controversial and more serious. I feel, this thread is going to metamorphosize into a good idea in the coming days.

jaat what we're doing right now is not voting, but electing nominees. Just trying to get together many good categories and a broad perspective of who should be in each category. Voting will be with a poll (separate for each Award obviously) and secret unless you tell everyone who you're voting for.

Nomination for CV rookie (approx.50 posts): Vincent (he just made his 51 post today) and  I find he has posted some good, researched posts.
I will also try to provide other nominations, but how do I find members with approx under 60 posts or so? Is there a way, or Mods if u have a way to generate a list of posters with like 30-60 posts, then post the list.

Sahir has made a few posts before he left that he was at Syracuse University (New York, i guess).
Do University websites offer way to find his email ID, given his name?
If someone (Mods) know his email Id, can u contact him? That chap deserves to be here, when the Summer Awards are being voted, if only someone can find/have his email id and contact him.

I nominate the "CRICKET VIDEO LINKS" (started by Sahir and then grown by all of us) for the best thread - we have all enjoyed so many of the videos.

ok. Actually since this was a sticky ... it ended up being at the top and I did not even notice it until now (I jump down to the middle of the page for the "meat")

My choice

MVP: Fineleg. Just the quantity of his posts beats everything else. But honestly he is the heart of the DG. He keeps things going when nothing else is happening. Truly think this DG would be much poorer without him(her)

Funniest: Its a tough one. But no I wont vote for myself :) . I think with due respect to others this needs to be shared between DD and Jiet. Jiet just for his sarcasm and DD for the effort he puts in the Asterix (even though he made me a beeping Unhygenix! How did he know about my showering habits :)  )

Best thread: I would put in the thread about the definition of Gangulian :) .. nah just kidding. I think Roadies beats out the Chicken crossing with just a beak.

Life time Achievement Award: Kban for his passion and attention to detail and the work for the betterment of the DG.

DD - bhaiyya

panchon ki rai lekar ab is karyakam ke liye ke date fix kiya jaaye. so that we know the deadline we are working towards.
awards should be live on the DG chat.
and ekdum filmi style me nominees pade jaayenge aur winner ko do shabd kehneka mauka milega.

it will be great. ek award bhi design kiya jaa sakta hai. which the winner gets to display on posts. plus nominnees and winners are given runs and special priviledges. maybe best member gets to be mod (if he/she is not a mod already.

i am going to give this thread another day or so , so that everyone can have a look and think about their suggestions (for awards and nominees)
then we will start a thread where people will solely post their nominees for the various categories (any digressions in that thread will be severely reprimanded  :D). I will decide the final list of awards to be given

after that we will go to the polls. i dont know about the prizes and stuff for winning awards. designing some images which only the winners can display is a great idea. if you or someone can arrange for that it would be fantastic. about mod privileges and and runs/applauds, will have to take it up with the mods.

the actual awards will be fun, we'll have to figure out a good way to 'present' them, and yes victory speeches will be a must.

Just IMO - no need for such 'exclusions' - everyone in this DG is valuable and everyone should be considered for awards - no need to exclude 'banned folks'. They did something, got banned, end of matter - that need not be a black mark and continue throughout their life at DG!

I find him a lot funnier than you, speaking in terms of solely crass humor. It is another thing that you find "dexy" so freaking funny and do not hesitate to make jokes on the expense of others but cannot take it if jaat or achu do the same thing to you. Your sense of humor is a one-way street, whether it be dhakkan or the hole.

ANyway, I don't want to ruin this thread and we can save our argument for somewhere else.

whoa whoa whoa ... aag laga ke bhag rahe ho bache. Not so fast!

So the Sexy Dexy has spoken. How about we leave whether I am funny or not for others to judge. I have no problems with the "hole" being used in a humourous way (and I have used it many a times at my own expense). I have explained this to Achu that he can use it any time to directly address me. I did have a problem when it is used to talk to me in a third person.. as it is being used to put my arguments down.

Dhakkan (and Jaat's other favorite ... Khote da puttar ... which means son of a Donkey) are name calling pure and simple! The response to that will be Ulla Ka Patha and then on to Bhen-C%$# etc etc. So please, dont equate any thing to that!

So as I said... you dont have to find me funny or even read my posts, there are a few who do like them, but please dont mention my name in the same sentence as Jaat. That is a sincere request!

bhai...I thought that the terms that I had used are harmless terms of endearment, provided you have the sense of humor ( and here you are expecting a humor-related award!) :(

Jaat, honestly I have nothing to say to you. I dont want to be speculating your dinner time conversations and terms of endearment and anyway any direct conversation with you goes down the drain so I would rather refrain.

For the rest of the DG. just fyi I dont expect any award here. I think DD and Jiet are funnier and in my book the humour award goes to them (split). I just was reacting to Jaat's post above where he was suggesting people warned or banned should not be in the fray. For the record I was never banned or warned on this or the previous DG (Dexy's old DG).

As I have mentioned earlier, if you want this award to be considered seriously, do away with 'tainted members' from your nomination lists, namely, Cover Point & Ruchir.

Had it been DD's personal awards, I wouldn't have said anything. But by trying to project this as one representing the whole DG ( which is a good idea), I think voices across the section must be considered.
It is not just a question of avoiding to vote at all.
In all kinds of elections these days, these factors are considered.

what factors??? that you dont like a nominee? well in that case dont vote for him. just because your views dont match the other two's does not mean they dont contribute to this Dg does it?? this is the DG award ceremony right? well in that case your opinion does not represent the entire Dg so why should these 2 be removed? i happen to agree with your pro certian player stance but does that mean that others cant be anti him?? come on dude your earlier post was nothing more or nothing less than a pathetic attempt to bait CP and ruchir, which i think is really against the spirit of this thread. having said that,
dd i will delete this post ASAP and maybe jaat would be interested in carrying this on if he wishes on the originla discussion thread.

No, I don't intend to impose my personal choice on the awards or nominations. But, while you are forming policies, a cross-section of opinions need to be considered IMO.
But, where are the opinions?

you are being daft here. you are correct in the negative that is. the whole point of CP being a nominee is that his opinion is also respected here. if you conduct a poll i am sure a lot of people who disagree with CP would still want to see him as a nominee. me for one.

OK....I am all for democratic processes. Lets have a poll on this. Or better still ( as polls can be manipulated)....nominate 5 juries for finalising the award nominees.
Let them vote and decide and form policies.
Is that fair?

a poll would be ideal considering everybody has a say in it. i think thats what the other thread was about. it was about people nominating who they want. i am sure a few people nominated the 2 and i see that is being perfectly ok. you really arent seriously gonna raise a ruckus about the nominations are you? if people dont think any nominee deserves to win they wont vote for them. it is insulting when you say things like the fact that ruchir and CP are nominees means that the whole awards are a joke.

My suggestion for formation of such a jury body which fairly represents this DG is as follows:

1. Kban1
2. Dextrous
3. Dhruvdeepak
4. Fineleg
5. Mock Turtle
6. K-slice
7. Justforkix
8. Keep-it-cool

Let these people, as mentioned above form some basic policies and go ahead with the nominations.

Post by: dhruvdeepak on July 25, 2006, 09:01:07 AM
the point of this thread was for everyone to put down lists of all candidates they'd consider for nominations (not only the one person they will vote for). It would be great if you guys could do that. Of course, if the people you want to nominate are already in the list there is no need to post them again.
and certainly not to put down different members.

i am sorry but i do not agree with this logic of 'tainted' members not being included. Maybe 'tainted' members should also not be allowed to vote??
Then I will have to remove feverpitch, yourself jaat, Teddy, tombaan and CP and whole award categories will be gone. that is besides the point that. having been banned/suspended for a couple of days does not make CP's posts any less funny. Many people in these two threads have already vouched for him being a candidate for this award, and that is how it will stay.

as for the eventual nominations and awards, i have spoken with kban regarding this and we both think the best way to do it is to have an open-ended number of nominees. I.e. whoever is suggested will be entered as a nominee. But the decision on actual awards given will stay with me. If you guys have any ideas regarding this and want to discuss it, please post on the other thread. We will certainly consider alternative ways of going about this.
But, I intend this particular thread to be only for posting nominees/awards. Please discuss etc on the other one.

so please end this debate about excluding members from the awards. The whole idea for this thing is to get everyone together and to have fun. Excluding a member from winning an award because he said "f*** you" to a member or something childish like that is ridiculous.

Because, as I have mentioned before, the whole idea of this exercise is for everyone to participate in an event together. I want everyone in on this, regardless of their views of certain players and coaches, and to vote and enjoy what happens after together regardless of differences in their respective points of view. To stop a person from participating goes against this. What does disallowing a person from voting/ being nominated achieve exactly?

We are getting side tracked here. Even I asked these qns to jaat, but I realize he is going to have his opinion, but seems like majority is in favor of allowing everyone to participate and win awards, vote etc.
So, majority wins and we shud move on.

My nominations:

Funniest member-: Flute202020 ( his thread on "Pro-SG vs anti-SG: Progressive and non-progressive India divide", being my reference point).

Best thread: Well, actually there are many. I remember discussing various rules of galli-cricket in one thread. Was it in this DG or the Arjun Swaroop-one?

Rivalry: Not sure, whether to call it the best or not...............Gauravk & Blwe_torch( they started threads on each others' name...."Blwe's predictions" & "Gauravk's God-speak").
Also, Kban and Flute202020....going by the sheer volume discharged. It would put both Homer and Ved Vyas to shame! ;D.......in riverine terms, it is like Amazon vs Nile!

You have mentioned this opinion of disallowing 'tainted' members for past 2 days...No one has requested that to be followed - most everyone in DG (who is active) has read the posts, and a few disagreed, and the rest did not object either.

There are no "tainted" members here - "unofficial" warning, "advice" couched in warning, "warning" couched in reminders - Cmon! Folks grow up - no one in this DG are "tainted" or anything.

Folks,
One thing - when the "actual voting" time comes - please leave the voting on atleast for like 9 or 10 days. Say a weekend + following week + next weekend.
Becos some ppl visit this DG on and off, some have to travel etc etc. So, in order to give proper time for folks to vote, allocate enough time for the poll booths to be open since afterall this is Cyberworld.

Cool as it may be to do short span or realtime voting, it is not practical.

I thought about it and would like to withdraw my nomination for any award. DD please do the needful.

Thanks

CP...this is a sentimental master-stroke! ;D
I mean, plz consider it once again!
Why bother abt what one jaat69 thinks anyway?
Or I may have to suggest a new category.."Drama Emperor" to ensure an award for you! ;D

Prolly the first time you got an applaud from me but I totally agree with this.

CP- be the same old CP man; don't let these things bother you or affect a decision

 I actually thought about it a lot. I really dont want to be associated with this thread anymore. This is just the way I am. Earlier in the DG days, this place was one of the many on my daily browsing stops. I used to come with an attitude of "what the heck" and I can sledge with the best of them. I have actually been "fooled" by the recent bon homie of this DG. Have started considering a lot of people here as friends. To me to be referred to as tainted or anything is offensive. The fact that this was actually discussed in seriousness on this thread was infact even more offensive. And a complete silence by a majority of the DGians in this matter (or lack of people save a couple  openly aking Jaat to shut up) was the last straw.

I am not threatening to leave the DG or any such thing. I am not sure of my ability to do that. I spend way too much time here to give these " empty threats". But this was something that started as fun and it is no longer fun for me. So I want to stay away from this.

CP Chief,

Let me make my stand clear on this. I have not repsonded to Jaat because I did (I forget the word I want to use here) not think it was worthy of one. Not to mention the fact that DD himself had asked not clutter the thread with irrelavant horse*.

I am sure there others who see it the same way.

ditto.

CP if you think silence meant agreement you are wrong. I am surprised you think someone even took it seriously.

Chal Chal ab nakhre mat kar- be the same old bindaas CP and stop this "non-association" talk ( for once I agree with jaat ;D ;D)- ppl will start getting an impression you are using SG as role model with "I have nothing to say or do"  ;)

nobody has considered jaat's suggestion to be worthy of a reply - his 'theory' just does not hold any water. i dont know why you need people to openly come out in support of you,  but trust me, nobody (else) thinks you are 'tainted'. hell nobody on this DG is 'tainted' it is a ridiculous idea in the first place which has been deservedly rejected. more than one person has asked to add you (CP) to the 'funniest' list. i am in total agreement with this. i should hope that stands for something. if you are looking for some 'support' there it is.

if you are going to go sulk in the corner so be it, but if someone puts your name up for a nomination, as it stands your name will be put up on the list. I am not going to sit around for people's 'approval' of being a nominee. my pov is stop being a 5 year old and get involved with this. we have to try and take other people's posts in the right manner, after thousands of posts i would hope people have learnt that much at least.

BTW - DD/Kban/Dex: Sent a PM to u folks - there is an option in the Poll which is disabled when u create a new poll. Enable that - more details in the PM. (tis abt the "show results after poll is over option")

Rams,
Thanks for the nomination. I certainly believe that I don't support or criticize any specific player becos of their name or region or whatever, but I support or criticize based on performance and their team-spirit attitude. It is heartening to see atleast someone in this DG thinks that I am not biased, coz my explanations have failed to convince some others - perhaps it is the way I explain!

Okay boys and girls - time for an announcement:

The voting will begin on Saturday 29th July, at 9AM EST. Members will have till Sunday 6th August, 9PM EST to vote in the various categories. Polling results will be hidden till 6th August. I will time the release of the polls such that voting will close one by one, each 15 minutes after the previous one. This will allow time for congratulations, commiserations, victory speeches et al. Sunday (next) night will be a good time for everyone to be present on the DG. I expect everyone to vote in each category. Please vote fairly: refrain from using alternate IDs and such schemes. Till Saturday (29th July) morning, both threads will remain open to suggestions and potential nominees. We will decide on prizes (if any) as well as who chooses the nominees (if we are to shortlist them) between now and then. I will try and get the mods to create a child folder or something of that nature to group the Awards threads together in.

PS: Why are we only voting for the 'Best'? Why not the worst ones too? May be we don't need nominations, but can certainly define the categories and let people vote. Or do we not want to name someone in a worst category? I don't think it's really a bad idea as long as the categories are well defined. That way the people named in these categories will have some clues about where they are going wrong.

I know...I am well aware of the flame wars on this DG. But c'm on, it's not going to be a discussion, just a vote in a category. Suppose if there's a category called 'Most irritating topic' and if I or a few others choose the same topic, then the originator of those topics will know that he/she is getting kind of irritating with the same old topic. I don't see why there should be a flame war for that. Remember I had said the categories have to be carefully picked, not something demeaning like 'Most stupid fella'. But I do understand your concern. Probably a few others or even most have the same concern and I won't be surprised if we leave out these categories.

Am I and CP the only ones who have been warned? And warned by WHO exactly?? One of those Mods who says hatefull things about others and personally attacks the members and then warn the members if they strike back!!! What a joke.

Curiously...in the Most loyal fan category nobody has been nominated as a die-hard Rahul Dravid fan!
What does this imply? RD fans are very pragmatic?...I am not very sure.
I think Gauravk is a bigger RD fan than his Agarkar's.
Similarly, flute is an RD fan.

Rams,
Thanks for the nomination. I certainly believe that I don't support or criticize any specific player becos of their name or region or whatever, but I support or criticize based on performance and their team-spirit attitude. It is heartening to see atleast someone in this DG thinks that I am not biased, coz my explanations have failed to convince some others - perhaps it is the way I explain!

 ;D ;D ;D
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

dangit! I thought it was the fibonacci for a second.
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D (jaws aching)

It was and you messed it up  :D

After all, Fibonacci is f(n) = f(n-1) + f(n-2)

3, 6, 9, __

Post by: fineleg on July 26, 2006, 08:31:57 PM
Can we please add Fineleg and Losing Now for the most balanced view category.

Also there need to be a category for "Unique writing Ability".  I would nominate Feverpitch for that.  I know he makes you feel that he is kind of an outlaw and he spurs up a controversy with his posts.  I know few people had issues, but the bottomline is I like his style of writing though I disagreed with his posts and had objections with very few of them.  Neverthless......
I was looking into the nominations. One name that is conspicuosly missing from the balanced view category is Toney.  Please add him to the list.

If we are calling balanced by virtue of being "pro" or "anti" Ganguly, neither of those names fit the bill...nor do most of the other names really. When it comes to Ganguly...

Kban - Dex made a comment and I am responding in this thread - Please move both comments to the other thread if u feel like, but I am going to respond to what is said of me here....I am moving my comment here

Yes, I know u will continue to say that. People can vote for whoever they choose to vote for. So, you can always exercise ur choice. And, I'll repeat, When it comes to SG or whoever, I am still balanced - I cannot convince u of that, thats a different issue.

I have certain yardsticks on performance (which may be different yardsticks than what others may have) - if players fail to live up to those standards, I will criticize and say they shud be dropped from the team - that is how I am - I have said that for whoever fails, does not matter if it is RD, SG, SRT, VVS or Kaif - they are all the same to me...Perform or please sit out the match or be out of the squad.

BTW - DD, can u also add Ramshorns to the balanced view category - infact in the fans list before we got to know abt other fans, I first got to know that Rams is a die hard VVS fan. But inspite of that, he has never pushed VVS case as a blind fan, he has only debated merits, and has also advised VVS shud not be in ODIs (depending on current form or other options of players) in many threads. That is very balanced.

So, please add Rams to that list of balanced views on cricket.

Post by: dhruvdeepak on July 27, 2006, 07:11:25 AM
Posting the prior announcement again:


The voting will begin on Saturday 29th July, at 9AM EST. Members will have till Sunday 6th August, 9PM EST to vote in the various categories. Polling results will be hidden till 6th August.

I will time the release of the polls such that voting will close one by one, each 15 minutes after the previous one. This will allow time for congratulations, commiserations, victory speeches et al. Sunday (next) night will be a good time for everyone to be present on the DG. I expect everyone to vote in each category.

Please vote fairly: refrain from using alternate IDs and such schemes. Till Saturday (29th July) morning, both threads will remain open to suggestions and potential nominees. We will decide on prizes (if any) as well as who chooses the nominees (if we are to shortlist them) between now and then. I will try and get the mods to create a child folder or something of that nature to group the Awards threads together in.

Also - artists please come forward and submit some image designs that the winners can put up as their display pics!


Another Announcement:

For the sake of uniformity, I am going to limit the list of nominations for each award to 10. Now, I do not know any efficient way to do this, except for me to see to it myself. Hence I will be excluding some names from the polls.

I will include an option in the VOTING threads for people to Write In a vote for any nominees not included on the list. If your name has been excluded, please do not take offense. This is just my attempt to make the voting as clean as possible, and I assure you I will list 10 people for each Award based on popularity in the nominee thread and not my own views.

Voters, I urge you to view the complete lists on the Nominees thread before voting for each award. If the person you intend to vote for is not in the poll, you can post his/her name in the thread, and that will be counted as a vote.

You may also PM me with the person you want to vote for, and the category, if you want to vote anonymously (if the person is not on the list)


this announcement brought to you by UCV - Light Up!

Before u go on a hartaal mode, let me inform you that a seperate board has been created for this award ceremony on Dhruvdeepak's request, so that all the relevant threads can be grouped together.

Actually the creation of a "new board" has sort of pushed this thread to obscurity.
Many members may primarily overlook 'non cricket' boards...infact many i feel have it 'collapsed'...u have to hit the + button to 'expand' the non cricket boards else it is hidden.

So, time to reconsider or atleast create the "real polls" in Main DG itself as sticky...dunno.

Well anytime you take emotions from cyberspace and let it affect you in RL (real life for the TL 101 students ;D), you need to step away from the computer, try to find a patch of sunlight ( I am in Seattle - we need to search for sunlight 11 months in the year ;D ) and stand there and take deep breaths. Then come back to the computer after sometime if you still feel like it.

Didnt i tell him to quit it too ??


You did. But you qualified your statement to me with a reference to me being an immatured, 8 year old!
If you believe, you are balanced, then do the same for your friend. :D

Jaat -
I think CP has mentioned he will stay outta ur way, and does not want to talk to u. But u keep bringing him up in threads...

Frankly, if it was face-to-face ppl would be nicer to each other, becos it is faceless, ppl fight more.

Thank you for the sound advice. Being in the IT industry, we do follow those stuff and more anyway.
Tell you what, sometimes, I wish, it gets real! :D

Grrr.

Jaat - to be fair and honest - you were behaving at the maturity level of a petty 8 year old.

And CP was reacting to your pettiness. I suppose the more mature thing for CP to do would have been to ignore your immaturity, but he didnt. There i said it!

I called them as i saw them. And CP is no more my 'friend' than any other person here. I mean, its not like we share a pitcher of beer after work or anything. So quit trying to project that i am showing CP any support.

You are right. The trouble is, he doesn't. Even without naming me, he comes into my ways.

Check out for some 'classy' sense of humor by a nominee at http://www.cricketvoice.com/cricketforum2/index.php?topic=4375.0 (http://www.cricketvoice.com/cricketforum2/index.php?topic=4375.0)
 :)

I think I need to start a poll. Should I continue to ignore this buzzing by an idiot or get back in my old form and take him on?

Duniya ... faisla hum aap par beepte hain

CP, stay away from name-calling.

No I wont! ... go ahead and ban me!

CP, just because someone is getting on your nerve does not mean you can call them names (just think of all the people you annoy by your mere existence on the board). And now if we let everyone, who you annoy by doing what jaat does to you, call you names and swear you out, the DG would succumb to anarcyh!

What's with the moving of this thread here. Hartaal time!

Think of the valuable runs that k-slice stole and then donated to DD, and the DD spent in getting a sticky. It isn't fair.

Hartaal! Protest! Inquilab Zindabad!

Before u go on a hartaal mode, let me inform you that a seperate board has been created for this award ceremony on Dhruvdeepak's request, so that all the relevant threads can be grouped together.

Thanks for clearing it up. I was just kidding anyway. :)

SGUSA, DD, Fineleg etc, yes I should just have ignored him. My fault here truly. Infact thats what i have tried to do since. I that new category someome mentioned though :)

SGUSA, next time you visit the chicago land area we gotta rectify that pitcher thing (on me). Nopes wont be able to give you a ride on a beamer ... u will have to settle for a camry or a SUV. :)

But tell you what, even if it is faceless, it does get personal.

so it is fair to say that if you guys (last 3 posts above) were to audition for tom hanks' role in The Da Vinci code, you would be stumped by the first question the casting ppl asked you: "What is a fibonacci sequence"
