It doesn't exempt them, it just doesn't make anyone look bad solely for being nominated. Just because a lot of people like 6N6's graphic designs on this site doesn't make 6N6 "the best graphic designer with down syndrome" just because he happens to use this forum. Hell, you're a user of this forum too and had a few nominations...does that mean you're "One of the funniest guys with down syndrome?" Of course not, because that's just fucking stupid.
I agree that it isn't anything to brag about for winning a poll on a forum, but I don't think anyone was taking it too seriously to begin with. It's not like anyone was saying "Woot! Fuck yeah! I'm going to put this on me resume! I AM GOD!" for winning or anything (Except me, kinda, but I was obviously joking given the context in which I said it...). It was just something stupid to do for shits and giggles. So prancing in here to belittle and indirectly insult people was kinda unnecessary, and pretty retarded.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for making fun of people when they deserve it. In this case, though, no one deserved it.
congrats to you on such a .... great accomplishment
Thanks. : )
Notice that 'great accomplishment' are your words, not mine. Unnecessary malice is unnecessary.
