It's WAR!

Some stones have been thrown my way, because of the Thank Q blogging contest I'm in.

I'm in the finals, and the submissions/opponent/poll is at the top of my page.  Please vote.

I've been receiving some NASTY comments from anonymous people hating on me and my Sonic post.  I didn't want this contest to get ugly, and it's not Mommy's fault or Q's, but I'm throwing the gloves off.

This.  Is WAR.

BRING IT!

Quincy just added some incentive for the winner of the Stunner Award.  The winner also receives a $25 Visa Gift Card.

I want the title.  The Visa card is a nice perk, but it's not why I got into this competition.

So this is what I'm going to do for YOU, oh avid followers of mine...

If I win, I'm going to be giving away the $25 Visa Gift Card.  Want to win it?

Comment on this post, and let me know you've cast your vote for your bro, Idaho.

If I win the contest, I'll be looking at ALL the comments on this post.  I'll be randomly selecting a winner, and will announce the winner once I receive the card.

Sound fun?  Sound fair?  Have you voted yet?  GO GO GO!!!

Rules:

1 - I have to win for the contest to be valid.  I may do a consolation-thingie if I don't win, but no guarantees.
2 - You have to be a follower of this blog to be eligible. (subject to verification)
3 - One entry per person.
4 - You'll have to email me a valid emailing address if you win.  So, you know, I can send you the card...
Please Share it! :)

Does this mean I can win the card back? Heh, heh, heh.

I'm not part of a logging war and will not be so, unless war is waged upon myself.

Eric P said...

How kind of you...giving away the gift card to the very people who make you win it. That's selfless right there.

Asty said...

Pretty cool idea, lol. Very selfless too.

You too Brutus? Another giveaway blog?

Astronomy Pirate said...

Nice war helmet, I hope it doesn't get to bloody. I voted for you though.

D4 said...

I'm in. I voted you and have since the start. G'luck! And sorry about the hate, but without haters you can't get big ;)

Lhosreiff said...

Wooooow 25 WHOLE dollars.

Choirchick22 said...

I voted for you like always. :) I think it's definitely a great thing for you to give back to the people who help you win (Hopefully). Don't put me in the drawing, just wanted to let you know you rock! I hope you win it!!

kitkat said...

The Reckmonster said...

I voted for my Idahomie. And let me just say - I am ANNOYED with the fact that folks are hatin' on your Sonic post. That shit was funny. IT'S FUCKING SATIRE, PEOPLE!!! Damn.

Tasty said...

Oy, I just voted for you but it looks like you're ten votes behind. :/

Success and/or awesome breeds haters. I wouldn't give them the time of day ;).

Good luck man.

Kelly said...

Good luck on the contest. I voted. Give me a free case of beer or better yet... a gift certificate for a free blow job from a toothless ho with AIDS if you win. Well, I'm off to the porn sites to see fist fucking midgets in clown outfits. See ya later, alligator. :)

mac-and-me said...

lol good luck

Michelle~ Mommy Confessions said...

I'm not giving anything away if I win. :-P

I do want to say, as I plan to post to my readers as well-
I understand that your post was satirical and not intended to hurt or poke fun at anyone.

Glovey said...

I like your blog style! Keep up the great blogging!

Knock 'em dead bro!

ironchefman said...

Idaho all the way!

Alice X said...

Voted :)

"I've been receiving some NASTY comments from anonymous people hating on me and my Sonic post."
where are they? did you moderate them out? why? i wanna read them!

i was all set to vote for mommy and then tell you so, if her post had been better, but honestly yours was better :)

Lost.in.Idaho said...

Yeah. I moderated them. I look at my comments and they stung too much to keep.

@mommy: thanks for the comment. Since you see the humor in it I'm a little more relieved.

Keep voting! 9 hours left...

Michelle~ Mommy Confessions said...

I don't moderate comments on my blog, I take the good with the bad, but it's certainly your right to do so. But, I would take them with a grain of salt. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and once you put your words out there on the web, you have to be prepared for that backlash. There will ALWAYS be people who disagree, even to the point of assaulting you with a vicious diatribe of hatred for what you've written. I've had it happen to me before as well.
This is supposed to be a fun, lighthearted competition. I am sorry if it's turned ugly for you.

I'm not sure about the whole Visa gift card thing to be honest. But again, it's your right to do so. There were no rules set out about soliciting votes. If I win, I'd like Q to donate my gift card to the charitable organization of his choice. Perhaps you will do the same?

Michelle~ Mommy Confessions said...

@ResCogitans I don't mind that you didn't vote for me. That is the way the competition was intended to work. Read both posts and vote the one that you liked better. Simple. I appreciate your honesty.

Michelle~ Mommy Confessions said...

Perhaps this will be a good learning experience for Q for next year. Maybe he can set up some pre tournament rules next time?!

Lost.in.Idaho said...

You know, that's a fantastic idea. I'm not sure if it's too late though... Some people may have voted for the sole purpose of winning the gift card...

I'll have to think about that. And I agree about the comments. I normally don't moderate, and I've received some angry comments and emails before, but these kind of stunned me into silence. They hit me to the core, and I almost backed out of the competition because of them.

It's gonna be fun to watch how this goes. I think I'm done soliciting votes, and am just going to see where the chips fall.

Michelle~ Mommy Confessions said...

I agree. It's funny because I almost suggested calling it a draw when all the craziness started.

But, yes,it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
Good luck!

whatever works for you

Floyd said...

I'm with Michelle on this idea. I voted for your post, since I thought it was the better of the two. However, I didn't vote to win the gift card. If you win, and I win, donate the card to a local charity or something.

Good luck. May the best blogger win.

Thank, Q said...

You guys never cease to amaze me. If donating the amount to charity is what you two wish to do, then so be it. I'll allow the winner to decide how they want to distribute the card.

squatlo said...

Hey, wait a damn minute... there's a cash prize involved here? YOu shittin' me?
I promised people 75% of the prize money if they voted for me! That means I owe 40-something people $18.75 each? Shit!

I want my missing votes back, dammit... I wuz robbed!

Voted for your ass, Idaho. Put me in the damn pot for the card...

Leila said...

Sweeet! Wait... does isn't the same hoax as the sweet head set competition thing right? (kidding! though not to bring up bad memories...)

I voted for you since day 1. I was gonna wait until the end of the competition to tell you, but... now that I have monetary incentive I don't mind spilling the beans. My email address is your.access.granted@gmail.com
