These kind of threads, although at face value may appear like lighthearted fun, actually serve to alienate people. The awards one especially that was on here a week or so ago isn't much fun when you're not nominated. It's all a bit cliquey and indulgent. I'm sure it's a great laugh for those involved but for everyone not mentioned it's a bit like eating at the loners table.
^ I think you're taking things a bit too serious. It's all just fun at the end of the day, but like it was said numerous times in the original thread by different members, it's hard to place everyone who's on the forum into a category.
It's not as if someone is trying to hurt/alienate you on purpose.
And it's not like whoever wins wins a flatscreen TV or a trip to Hawaii or something. At the end of the day it's something fun and that's what I like most about this forum because of the fun things we participate in.
