And once you arrive at the result are you going to further vet the candidate for how they have posted on your website? Perhaps checking for style in how they are able to stick to the pertinence of the topic, or how often they have imparted less then philosophical rigor in their remarks, or will it be example of a popularity contest?
Logically, Carleas should have disqualified an unsuitable candidate before the voting began.
It would not look good for him to reject the winner.

Such subtle assessments are beyond the scope of the people here.
Carleas' approval voting decision was probably the best available choice he could have made under the circumstances.

I toyed with vetting, and I'm glad it didn't ultimately come up (all the nominees were good candidates). The inclusion of a few guidelines about who could be nominated and who could vote were cludges to get at a similar idea, and I don't think I would have vetoed anyone who could make it through them.

I agree with Phyllo, it would not have looked good to reject the winner. When resorting to a democratic process, it is often the case that the validity of the process is more important than the outcome.

In some respects I believe it would have not looked bad "on him" at all. That and this, is opinion, Dan is ok; the least 'offensive' of the lot, and it's the religion forum after all. Of coarse, I reserve the imperative to change this opinion as the choice plays out.
my goal in life is to die and no one notices.
in other words; to live as audaciously as possible while drawing the least attention. or at best, something vaguely similar.

I'm not the least offensive? I actually take a strange little bit of pride in that...lol

Where did I rank on the offensive list?

Pavlovianmodel why are you not offensive? You definitely offended me with your remarks about my post. Did you see the depression I got into because of it? It was a short but intense depression and it was your fault.

Congratulations, Dan. I wish you many golden moments.
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience


“No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.”
