Which of the top 50 WAYWRN posters do you think have bad taste? - Page 18

post #256 of 290
Is this like low Chicago? Do the high and low vote-getters split the pot? What is the pot?

If I post naked girls in this thread too will that increase or decrease my votes?

Do any of you know where I can find some magic mushrooms?

Thanks.

I don't understand how almost everyone on this list could be associated with anything less than great taste.

I really don't understand how Tc Houston could even get one vote(even jokingly). To me the person with most original style that I am personally the most inspired by is Barims. PG and Mafoofan all always perfect and Vox is classic.

BTW now that I have gained all my weight back from being ill I will start posting in WAYWRN again.

1. Agreed, but do you count the 51st State (Canada)?
2. Agreed.
3. Agreed.
4. You obviously haven't watched enough a) American baseball or b) foreign baseball. A world All Star team would not defeat the Pittsburgh Pirates...so gotta disagree on this one...the World Series vertainly is, the world series.

1. Yes, but this island is so dammed large and isolated that it's rather difficult to leave more than a few times every few years, especially when there's not a vast amount of cash left over for the travel account. 2. Starbucks drip IS coffee, just horribly over-roasted beans that have had the flavor incinerated from their poor little bean bodies, replaced instead with char, ash, and soot notes. 3.+ 001 4. This is not entirely correct. We have enough AZN and South/Cental American players to satisfy the diversity quota of a world-class event.

It's already been noted, but I think this reflects forum sentiment against personalities or personal styles, rather than actual poor taste. Barims generally has a very creative look without any affectation or appearance of costume. It's likely due to his supreme confidence and swagger in his dress, so he's able to pull it off without looking silly. PG and Foo generally look excellent, but they are of course not without fault. Vox, as resident deity who is both omniscient and omnipotent on this forum, is naturally beyond reproach, less one wishes to blaspheme and risk eternal ban-nation to SuFu or the GQ forum.

It's too easy to brush off the results of a poll where 325 people voted, simply by invoking some bad faith, vendetta and other reasons. Obviously, there will always be some level of noise in such a poll, anonymous or not (I would contend that there is less noise than if it were public). But discarding the whole exercise because of that noise would be either silly, delusional or disingenuous.

So, let's stop mentioning that 10 or 15 people (out of 325) voted for such and such guy as some form of evidence that the more statistically significant results are flawed. First of which being that SFers overall don't seem to fault top WAYWRN posters for their taste too much. Think of it, if 15% think that X has bad taste, it also means that 8 or 9 out of 10 think that X does not have bad taste.

That is assuming that all the people who voted have what you consider Good taste, correct?

We're all social animals and taking away the personality factor is ludicrous.

It is human nature to show some clemency towards someone we do appreciate or admire for personal or groupthinking reason and we do must to take account the + in the votes as well as the obvious -.

Good taste is such a minefield concept to start with without bringing in personality issues.

I didn't vote because I would have done it partly out of spite instead of giving entirely valid reasons behind my choice.

No it doesn't assume this. One could look at the stats and conclude the opposite

What is "taste" (to you) anyway? You're just asking if they dress well? Because you can be dressed with taste and never have that little extra making you look good.

So Parker wins the best taste poster given he has received least votes in the poll?

I conclude that 20 odd people think you should wear Ascot's more often.

- actually it is just "1", but you get points for knowing how to dial out as this proves you know someone outside the states
- I am always at fault when bukake is beimng played
