To those it may concern, I won't be on the list next update. I requested that Wade reset my B/P points to zero, and he obliged.
Well, I guess that kudos are in order for you, Slash. A shame that you've done this in the way of the statistical suicide, but I understand your reasoning behind it.
Now if only Wade would make a token gesture as an example, by resetting someone's stats, because they're mass voting and doing it for the stats, as opposed to the protection of the flash portal. One or two spring to mind.
I'll be on this list again someday, but I'll be doing it on my own time, and in my own way.
I'm glad to hear it. Sure, your pace won't be as torrid as it used to be, but now that we have established that there are people out there that want to make a difference, we'll try to take it forward and get people to vote What they think a flash is worth, as opposed to what they think it will achieve, for the precious stat points.

Unfortunately, I will not pass anyone this week. But in the next a few weeks or so, I will get Aksumka, Eagle Rock and Major Punk. Of the three people that I just mentioned, two of them are my former EGB commrades, and the fact that I am a EGB reject gives me extra motivation as I try to pass them again. >:)
Retired, semi-retired and deceased. Boy, you must feel really good to pass some people like that. At least Ehwaz is giving me a run out for this one :P

You're going to need to really step up the pace a bit to reach your goal - especially if you ever hope to pass THIS EGB member, or Phantom or Coop.
It's like the comeback of Michael Schumacher in Formula 1 - he won seven world titles, pretty much untouchable by all competitors (Damon Hill, Jaques Villeneuve and Mika Hakkinen were the only drivers to win titles other than him during his golden years, Alonso won the 05 and 06 titles, before he retired.) Now he's back, he lacks the drive and cutting edge to get there amongst the new generation of kids. 9th last year and just qualified 11th for the race tomorrow.
Forgive me, too much petrol in my head this morning :P
