Episode CCLXXXI: Contrived outrage! »« Scratch another maxim off the atheist list

A new Molly-fication

Mary has tallied up the Molly votes, and told me to announce the winner for the month of October days ago, and finally, I wake up from the end-of-semester workload to do my job here. The winner is…

A. Noyd

See? I get around to it all eventually. Now you have to leave nominations for November right here in the comments.

Comments

  1. says

    Yes! Congratulations, A. Noyd!

    For November:

    Jafafahots, who is seriously overdue for always sharp, insightful comments.

    Agent Smith, who has a wonderful way with words and easily illustrates any point. Example.

    Anri, who is a wonder of a gnu atheist, always witty and ever patient. Example.

  2. John Morales says

    A. Noyd — an excellent choice.

    Grats!

    Alas, I haven’t kept up, and I was away much of November.

    This time, I’ll just say that I like all of the above-mentioned nominees; they are all worthy.

  3. 'Tis Himself, OM says

    Congratulations, A. Noyd. Your invitation to the monthly OM orgy and baby roast has been misplaced.

    For September October November I nominate Jafafahots because he’s intelligent, witty, and something else that I forget.

  4. Brother Ogvorbis, OM, Demoted says

    A. Noyd:

    Conga rats ululations!

    I vote for Cryp Dyke an Jafafahot.

  5. Mr. Fire says

    Well done, A. Noyd!

    By the way, coincidence or no, it only just occurred to me – A. Nnoyed.

    Hah!

    So this is the first time I’ve even looked at this thread & holy crap, *I’m* nominated? Have I been nominated before? Sure, I contribute, but I write so much I make people really work for it if they want my contributions. I don’t know how to write less than 4 paragraphs about *anything*. Doesn’t being pithy & concise count for anything round here? X-P

    I know I can’t vote b/c I’m not a molly, but can I say I’m absolutely humbled but encourage people to vote for someone whose been contributing over a long period of time? I’ve really only been commenting since 3d4k and most of that was figuring out how to be useful ’round here.

    Not that the thought isn’t really, really, appreciated, and of course, I don’t control nobody, but I would encourage people to honor someone whose really contributed, not someone like me who might have made a few helpful posts recently. Since I haven’t historically paid attention to these things, I don’t know who might be overdue, but I’m sure it happens and Caine is practically an off-line Pfft! of all Pharyngula knowledge, so, y’know, I’m certain that she’s right about Jafafahots.

    Just my 2 cents about encouraging recognition of long term contributions. Carry on.

    (and see? I didn’t even intend it, but I ended up with 4 paragraphs above. That actually made me laugh)

  7. John Morales says

    Crip Dyke,

    I know I can’t vote b/c I’m not a molly

    No!

    Anyone can vote — anyone!

    (Yeah, the stupid trolls @1 & 2 abuse that, but nonetheless)

    … but I would encourage people to honor someone whose really contributed, not someone like me who might have made a few helpful posts recently.

    False modesty ain’t becoming, Crip.

    (You’re still Molly-worthy, but ;) )

    That actually made me laugh

    :)

    Well, I smiled, anyway.

    (FWIW, compared to Paul W., you’re terseness incarnate!)

  8. janine says

    I know I can’t vote b/c I’m not a molly…

    Crip Dyke, a molly is not a requirement to vote. The act of voting is enough.

  9. chigau (違う) says

    If only Mollies could vote for Mollies, where did the first Mollie come from?
    Answer that evolutobots!!1!! HA!

  10. Crip Dyke, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden says

    alright, I stand corrected. I’m full of errors today, actually. I usually don’t have to admit more than an error a week, and I think this is the third today.

    Then given the open voting conditions, I vote for Jafafahots.

    (I assumed that the first Molly came from PZ or something. Now I’m wondering where I got the idea that only Mollies vote for future Mollies… Hmmm. I guess now I should start looking at this thread then.

    And, yes, I’m opinionated and talkative, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the modesty is false. I know I’m a good writer. I know I have a broad vocab and that I’ve studied a number of things. In my off-line career, I’m actually known as an innovator and give a fair number of lectures. But I also believe and have believed for a long time that we often don’t reward the people who toil steadily, over long periods. So what I said was just consistent with that.

    Actually, Being able to weigh in on my own also makes me feel better about getting others’ votes. Y’all can vote using whatever criteria you like (not that you wouldn’t anyway). I made my vote according to my priority of paying back long term work so I don’t need to convince/employ other people to vote according to that value to get it put in practice.

    Peace out.

  11. A. Noyd says

    Wow, this is a bit of a shock. But one of those pleasant ones, and I certainly welcome it after a day that needed some brightening. (Last week before finals is rough when you’re both a procrastinator and a perfectionist.) Looking forward to spending a bit more effort living up to this over the upcoming break!

  12. David Marjanović says

    Doesn’t being pithy & concise count for anything round here? X-P

    Not if you make paragraph breaks. :-)

    If only Mollies could vote for Mollies, where did the first Mollie come from?
    Answer that evolutobots!!1!! HA!

    Thread won.

    Last week before finals is rough when you’re both a procrastinator and a perfectionist.

    :-D I can imagine!

    A. Noyd:

    (Last week before finals is rough when you’re both a procrastinator and a perfectionist.)

    Yes – this is me…***exactly***

    I’m only taking one class, but for the classes I’m teaching I didn’t even finish the final exams until the night before I was to give my students their study guides, and then I didn’t pass out the study guides in class but had to post ‘em on the class website…

    …and my paper for the class I’m taking? Oh, I’m far past the minimum length, but I’m not half done and have another 25 or 26 hours to finish. The only blessing is that I’m a fast writer after I’ve done my research…

    This is me, procrastinating even more….

  14. Esteleth, Ph.D. of Mischief, Mayhem and Hilarity says

    I hereby submit my votes for Crip Dyke and Jafafahot
    For behold, both of them are awesome.

  15. cicely, unheeded prophetess of the Equine Apocalypse says

    Congarats for A. Noyd, and yet another OMnom for Crip Dyke.

    Just giving a “finals week procrastinator and perfectionist” update:

    I finished the paper with 1 hour 42 minutes to spare.

    Who says I leave everything to the last minute? Who? Who?

    Oh, right, the spotted owl in the tree 400 yards from my bedroom: that, “who”.

  17. Crip Dyke, Right Reverend Feminist FuckToy of Death & Her Handmaiden says

    and I find votes for me. Have to stop posting here, it will go to my head. I’ll become a mad, powerhungry woman who wants to remake the entire world in her own ethical vision and lounge in debauchery with a hot woman from an entirely different country who’s willing to fly down the Pacific NorthWest just to see me.

    Wait…. o.O
