That's the first time that both of my nominations made it to the next vote. Who's retireesmith though? They have no posts but have been a member for awhile.

A lurker or SP?

I'll do you one better. Let's do away with the run-off vote and declare The Princess Bride the winner now.

What is an SP in this context?

Maybe? Probably? It only received less than 25% of the votes. I'm just glad the two I would not have read if paid to do so did not make the final cut. Otherwise it's all good.

Sock puppet.

I'll vote for the Jerome since I've never read it; it's not what I would have predicted for second place. I have no problem with Princess Bride, the likely winner.

It's a little odd that the person has never posted but has been a member for quite awhile.


I'll be reading The Princess Bride regardless of whether or not it wins. It's one of my favorite movies, so it'll be interesting to see how similar they are. But I'll wait until the vote to decide when I read it, if it wins I'll wait so it can be fresher in my mind when we discuss it. But if it loses I'll read it right away.

Thanks, I understand now.

It is a moot point as far as the April selection, but I just saw this and decided to attach it while the topic was current.

The poll would have been rigged had it won. (IMHO) It's garbage at best.

TBH, I am surprised it got three votes. I am surprised it got any votes.
