I've really been liking @brotherbear 's stuff as of late

@brotherbear has very strong opinions that give new perspective

@TNA may have gone full Trump this year, but I'll still read everything he writes

@GoldenCinderblock has made a resurgence this year, and I love me some goldie.

11/29/17

Thanks, appreciate the shoutout.

11/29/17

goldie is rarely relevant, but always entertaining, love his stuff

@Martinghoul

On the S&T Forum he replies to almost all threads and has been helpful. ALso if he does not have an idea about a topic he does point towards resources that can help in understanding that topic.

@CRE has dropped some great stuff this year too.

11/29/17

Thanks, man

11/29/17

yeah for sure, he's on my shortlist

@catthegreat" for most original perspective

11/29/17

Thank you. As they say, better to die original than as a dull copy ... :)

11/29/17

@Sil gets my vote

11/29/17

probably mine too, or tie between him and brofessor

Sil way better than me, I may have a larger body of work but he's been more helpful

I think you both are on fairly equivalent grounds in terms of helpfulness, and both are of you are quite gracious in the same. It's very much appreciated :)

There's a closer meaning to my user name. Try reading it quickly. Perhaps you will then understand ;P

I appreciate that. Now, how's that book coming along? :P

I nominate @thebrofessor @TNA and @Sil .

I hope these nominees will continue the tradition of greatness we have seen in the dicks, the dongs, and the bulges who have come before them.

11/29/17

@Sil in all respects, and it isn't particularly close for me with respect to this year. He has been an absolutely sterling contributor this year, and actually motivated me to start contributing to the site over the last 10 days.
@APAE
@thebrofessor

@DickFuld gets the honorary mention :P

Ok, so I went and checked your "contributions".

/forums/strangest-t...
What exactly was the 'motivation' involved here? I guess I'm going to need to check @sil"'s post history to see where this inspiration came from.

11/29/17

For me, it's absolutely @thebrofessor this year.

If I am actually put on the nomination list this year, I will quit the site and start a massive online strike against the site. It would seriously be stupid to put me on the list this year as I didn't post much, was off my game, and basically put no effort in. I will strike much harder if @IlliniProgrammer is nominated as he did even less than me. If you won before, you shouldn't be allowed to be nominated again.

If I think of other people, I will return.

EDIT: @BobTheBaker for being relentless with his viewpoint after getting shit on repeatedly. I probably threw the guy 500 SBs this year. If everyone is against him, he still advances his position. You gotta love that.

Also, I vote for the user with the biggest tits a la Matt Lauer and Bill O'Reilly.

11/30/17

Thanks for the nod, I come with the real regardless of the hate. Now shower me with MS fellas.

11/29/17

I nominate @Lloyd BIankfein / Angel Molester. He's racked up an insane amount of banana points this year, started a ton of engaging discussions, and is a seriously entertaining user!

11/29/17

did you just assume my gender?

You can leverage it into a lot more than that. Scroll down to number 18 in this link. I had trouble sealing the deal before the MOTY award. Closed it after the award.

Thanks Patrick and Andy.
