That's where I draw the line. I don't want any imaginary numbers or decimals mucking up the SOD.

I just don;t think that IF there is a poll outside of this thread then it looks bad for the group if we "poll kick" non-members


That's cool, I'm all out of holiday rage now and so either way is fine with me.

Did you mark them as zeroes in the SOD? The write up in the OP I've been following says 1-10, but it's nice to know the precedent.


1-10 is the rule, has been forevs.

People have given scores with negatives, but I've always counted those as 1s, but in a total defiance of logic if they scored a book between 0 and 1 I entered it as that score. I think most likely I did it that way just because the slack asses that preceded me didn't clearly state 1-10 as a rule in the OP. After I included it in the OP I continued to allow 0-1 scores because disallowing them would in my mind mean that I would need to go back and disallow the previous 0-1 scores and that sounded like a pain in the ass.

So basically in less words, 1-10 is the strongly encouraged rule that can be broken on the dl. We're talking about it impacting the overall score by tenths of a point anyway so whateves.

On the flipside, people have obviously given scores over 10, but those have always been entered as 10s.

No precedent for anything being entered higher than 10. I can't be expected to remember entering corrected scores for your lame attempts at humor over the years.

I'm not a member of the Review Group anymore, generally due to lack of funds. But I have to add a review here.

I am absolutely not sure what to rate this book. The amazing artwork by Brett Booth makes we want to give it a 9. Larfleeze himself in 3/4 of the book is interesting and in character, so that deserves a high score. But the appearance of Hal "Bland" Jordan and his hypocritical moralizing about the "spirit of Christmas" makes me want to give this title a 0 and then write an angry letter to Geoff Johns that the target of these comics are not four year old mentally handicapped kids who are incapable of understanding something unless it is explicitly told to them.

I'm going to rate this 2.5

Larfleeze Christmas Thing #1 or whatever.

I don't read Green Lantern because it makes me sleepy.

I don't buy Christmas specials because I'm Scroogelike in my curmudgeoning and Tiny-Timlike in my poverty.

I haven't been able to get to a comic shop this week nor will I be able to for the rest of the year. However this comic has produced the most ridiculous argument since the discovery that Punchy's vaunted principles rebuilt Avengers mansion off-panel and filled it with lipstick lesbians and rigged polls. That alone is worth a better score than that issue of Booster Gold the other week.

Forty out of Ten
