It’s that time of year when I start going through the Bragging Rights Central archives of my favourite comment(s) from this blog and post(s) from other blogs – see the sidebar for details – trying to pick my favourite comments for the annual reader vote. Expect the list of finalists and the reader poll some time in the next few days…
…but for now, I present to you: the Third Annual VWXYNot? Awards for the Most Comments and Posts Listed in Bragging Rights Central!
As always, the winner of each category gets a $20 (Canadian) Amazon gift certificate, as well as 2012 Bragging Rights (Quantitative)!
NB the most recent comments and posts that are currently in the sidebar do count towards this year’s totals.
First, the comments:
And it’s another runaway victory for the defending champion in this category, Richard Wintle / Ricardipus! Many congratulations to Richard, and please email me to let me know which email address I should use to send you your well-deserved Amazon gift certificate!
