We can not influence the outcome of this "contest" anyways, why give them traffic?

Who is this @ShuggieHamster person who said:

" Fara bring a very different take on many things whereas the other 3 tend to deliver a similar view. He tells it as he sees it whereas the others tend to filter AND he's scottish - gods chosen people! "

Well, yes, the Scots are a multi-talented people who punch above their weight and are worthy of great respect, but.....

 

Is he not aware of the great quote by Cecil Rhodes (that shy, retiring Social justice Warrior from the Victorian era) who said to Lord Grey:

" ... you are an Englishman, and have subsequently drawn the greatest prize in the lottery of life " :Smile_hiding::Smile_teethhappy:

Why not? Just because some social justice warrior types are trying to do a bit of historical revisionism it doesn't change the fact that Rhodes did an awful lot of good in the world, not the least being endowing educational establishments.

 

As to the Ring, it seems utterly meaningless since it seems to be CC's voting for each other and more than a few of the CC's have refused to take part.

Absolutely not!  (Hence my sarcasm about " shy, retiring Social justice Warrior")

My personal views are 180 degrees from those of his ilk.

 

Just doing a bit of gentle leg-pulling!  :Smile_honoring:

I missed something..why isn't Jingles in that list?

 

Jingles is already in the second round. You can vote just for CCs that are not qualified yet.

Ha...well fair enough. He may have done some great things with the wealth he amassed as Beau points out, but his views on the people that lived in the areas he made that wealth form were definitely a sign of the times and gladly few and far between these days (Rule Britania! :Smile-_tongue: )

SJW types? So it's revisionism to comment on the facts of the man's views held at that time in the world that existed then? He wasn't the only one that held such views, but it'd be a little one eyed to not acknowledge them.

 

Anyway, as to the ring it remains to be seen if they've learned from their mistakes the 1st time round.

I guess that appearance, attitude and voice were of more importance :cap_yes:

No reason what ever to care for the ring as we don't really matter in terms of who will become the winner.

 

WG F-effed the event so badly as seems to be their standard. 

Community event where community is in a minor role is just not worth it.
