Why didn't you nominate this earlier? Certainly looks interesting.

Actually Jon's suggestion is what we do in the literary club. I like the idea of everyone weighing in if two books receive equal support, but I admit I also like to vote regularly. A tie has happened once so far, the very first month, and it worked out fine with the tie-breaker vote. Of course our votes are shorter - three days for the regular one, one day for a tie-breaker. Bob's plan is certainly simple and no reason for one to break precedent....if one can restrain oneself enough to implement it.

I'll certainly be voting in the poll.
I agree that all moderators should be free nominate and vote as they wish, but your reasoning sounds wise of you.
