Post Re: Tomato Picker 8/13
Just a reminder to anyone who doesn't remember or wasn't around back then:

I used to run this game where everyone would post their predictions publicly, so everyone could see them. That way, no one could accuse me of cheating.

Algren insisted that it should be secret, and he eventually got a majority to agree. I objected, because I was worried that someone (like Algren) would accuse me of cheating.

So we switched, against my desires, and I kept losing like I always do. Because I wasn't cheating.

And now that I am doing well (which I can do from time to time) I've had the cheating thing thrown at me more than once now this month. Yeah, I know it's all said in teasing fun but hmm, I was never accused of that before I started doing well...

Jesus, lighten up. It wasn't an accusation, serious or in jest. It was plain and simply a joke of what you could do to ensure the win. The system for predicting is the best it has ever been, and I do not think you are cheating.

I'm kind of sensitive about those things... Being honest and having a good reputation for that sort of thing is very important to me.

Unfortunate to see Hitman's Bodyguard take a drop.

Only film left is Tulip Fever. It's Wednesday and still no reviews. The film has been pushed back from its original release date at least 2 times. Signs of a bomb coming.

My prediction and i.hope's are 18 points apart. If this bombs, he'll most likely win this game!
