Not really, I've been good to not comment on how other people vote, but when I saw Konata...Couldn't hold myself back.

Way to be biased, Minty. If I where the RM faction right now, I'de multivote like crazy.

How is the match description biased? A little embellishment on the facts is all I see. And it gives Suigintou plenty of credit for being up to the challenge.

But, if Shana loses this one there are plenty of us that will be looking for someone to blame. :jii:

Well, overlooking the fact he never mentioned the time Suigintou defeated Shana...

"Suigintou has been washed away by Shana without even coming close to six feet on the scoreboard." - That comment would generally annoy me if I where a Gin fan, and then he topped it off with calling Suigintou insignicant..."or anyone for that matter" <-- If this where true, then what about Haruhi?


The second half Isn't biased, but the first half certainly sounds that way.

Did you miss "Suigintou is only five months removed from winning the Korea Super Best Moe '08 championship, a championship that Shana tried to defend..."?
...and then he topped it off with calling Suigintou insignicant..."or anyone for that matter"
"...as of late." That's not true?
<-- If this where true, then what about Haruhi?
"...a threat that only Suzumiya Haruhi can match statistically."


It sounds like it's the way it's being read that's biased.

I'm not in a arguementative mood, really. ^^;
Three times. That's how many times Suigintou has run into Shana. That's how many times Suigintou has lost to Shana.
He specifically mentioned each time she meet, Suigintou has lost. What he was referring to in SBM, was that Shana lost and was incapable of defending her title, but it was not to Suigintou. Haruhi defeated Shana there, and then Suigintou won in the end. I was referring to KBM the year before.

When he mentioned Haruhi statistically matching Shana, he was referring to VF, not performance. Otherwise, the two would contradict eachother, because when you say "anyone," that does not disclude Haruhi.

"as of late," when Shana is marginally stronger than Suigintou based on performance ratings?

Anyways, I probably would overlook the bias too if the bias revolved around a character I care about, but from someone who is neutral with both, it looks biased to me.

all I can say is that the description would make anyone favour Suigintou over Shana, and i guess we can all agree that minty can fail in amazing proportions when he feels like it

Sorry, didn't mean to be argumentative. And thanks, once again, for your detailed explanations.

I can see where it would come across as being biased from that point of view. I should just shut up when it comes to previous tournaments, since I'm rather ignorant about them.

Go Shana! :D

I didn't really mind, It's all open to interpretation~

Ever since Kholdstare stopped letting me know what's on his mind, I've no one to argue with. :lol:

I give Geimu's comment the big stamp of approval. Especially the second half.

Well, correct interpretation comes from a proper understanding of what's really going on. :bigsmile:

I'm too casual of a participant to keep up with those kind of juicy tidbits. But I do find them amusing. Poor minty. No slack for the founder.

Canon? No. Possible? Yes. But that is just a possibility in the case of them wanting to confirm a pairing with Nanoha... which is unlikely, so...
