    Hmmmm... I've just noticed that I've been random-killed a lot. Why do I have to be the punching bag? Is it the easy-to-drawness of my charecter? The fact that his kind of evil is the kind everyone wants to kill? is is because no one likes me? Is it the fact that I find hilarious and/or disturbing ways of killing you?

    No, thats wasn't it. I think it was the killing of little girl's cute and fluffy pets, zombifying the cute, fluffy, and dead pets, and then making the zombie cute and fluffy pets attack the little girl. It was fun (I distinctly remember cackling maniacally).

    Very well Nameless, your grasp of time is correct. For once.
    It has been over 24 hours since the last vote, and I'll repost the current votes here:

    {table=head]For including FAIL|Against including FAIL
    BRC|Lemming
    Keveak|CrimsonAngel
    The Gremlin|Tired N' Drowzy
    chriky|Fayte
    The Randomizer|Threeshades
    VampireRot|Szilard
    Ninja Chocobo|bayar
    -skimmer-|[/table]
    memarch is voting for whoever has the least votes.
    Lyinginbedmon is voting for whoever has the most votes.
    So they cancel out! (Technically they add 1 to both)
    -skimmer- will drop out in case of a draw (but I'm not counting that for now, or it just gets complicated.

    For: 9
    Against: 8

    Last vote: Lyinginbedmon at 10:53PM GMT. Voting ends 11PM on March 11th.

    Well since now the argument's been revived...
    What bugs me about the whole thing is the "Not use" people are calling for a complete embargo on the term whereas the "use" people have made compromises. It's a give and take process, people!

    Anyway. What I propose is that the name is used in the cartoon, and progresses to being used by small children, and adults possibly when in the presence of small children, or using it ironically, or if they're massive geeks regarding the cartoon.
    Thus, the term is used, but rarely and in fairly specific circumstances.

    Feel free to ignore this, but I consider this the most logical use.

    It was also the use in which I envisioned it occurring most frequently.

    So perhaps you'd like to cast a vote into the "For FAIL" category then? We have another 8 hours left before voting ends again.

    For: 8 (7+memnarch)
    Against: 8

    As you can see, it is currently a tie, so we have another 24 hours of voting.
    See now this is where I'm confused, the graph says not- fail is in the lead with 7/6 but then you say it's 8/8.
    What do you mean?
    Also, was Szilard the last person to vote?

    Memnarch said he'd vote for the side with the least votes, but it's moot for now because now the tallies actually are 8/8.

    Ahh I see.
    The only issue with that is that the losing group is always one point behind, meaning we'll never actually finish this thing.

    The table shows who's voted for what, but memarch had voted for whoever is currently losing, so his vote keeps switching. It was 7/8, so memarch counted as voting "For FAIL", so it became 8/8.

    I'm only looking to get a couple of throwaway references to FAIL, so as not to throw out someone else's idea.

    Well, if you don't want FAIL not to appear in the ABR at all, then I'll put you down as "For Including FAIL".

    Not if one group pulls two points ahead, or we wait 48 hours after a tied vote.

    Besides, every other media probably calls it ALF, why would ONE TV show make people call an organization a joke name when EVERYTHING ELSE (newspapers, government, etc.) calls it something else. The show might be popular, but it can't make everyone call a terrorist organization a joke name.

    Nameless called a vote on whether the concept of FAIL should be kicked out of ABR completely. So if you don't want that, vote "For including FAIL", and then after that we can vote on how much people use it.

    Go-go length democratic process!

    That would be accurate. 'Use FAIL' is really just allowing it in FI at all, in the show mostly, occasionally used outside it. Especially around children, as the word 'FAIL' is less likely to upset them than a 'real' name like ALF.

    Still arguing about that nonsense? Do you people even understand what "nickname" mean? Who wants call them FAIL, then call them FAIL and who dont, its his choice. After all this is how nicknames has been created (Even the worst like this one). I cant disallow that. (its not like I could even disallow something, but you know what I am trying to say)
