If you claim to be an average human being then why do you call yourself a 'Guru' (your username).....use a more subtle 'average' name instead
What makes you think that money is passed around in the rankings? It is done on a user-to-user basis, not by a panel of experts.

Mods,
I have a request-did NOT know where else to put this up.
Could you include the "all i wanted to speak about CAT" stories of 2007 and 2008.Some of the experiences are missing in this inspiring stories list.
If that is done,i'm sure many of us in PG would indeed feel very grateful.
