The Man
Default 35. Best/Most Creative Topic Starter

These people could be counted on to start quality discussions.

You’re better off not dreaming of the things to come
Dreams are always ending far too soon

“When I was twelve, I milked my eel into a pot of turtle stew.
I flogged the one-eyed snake, I skinned my sausage, I made
the bald man cry into the turtle stew, which I do believe my
sister ate. At least, I hope she did.” -Tyrion Lannister
“The management is very bad. In fact, let’s not mince words: The management is terrible!
We’ve had a string of embezzlers, frauds, liars, and lunatics making a string of catastrophic
decisions. This is a plain fact. But who elected them? It was you! You who appointed these
people! You who gave them the power to make your decisions for you! While I’ll admit that
anyone can make a mistake once, to go on making the same lethal errors century after
century seems to me nothing short of deliberate. You have encouraged these malicious
incompetents, who have made your working life a shambles. You have accepted without
question their senseless orders. You have allowed them to fill your workspace with dangerous
and unproven machines. You could have stopped them. All you had to say was, ‘No.’” -V
“If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don’t have to worry about answers.” -Thomas Pynchon
“All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.” -Adam Smith
“Why throw money at problems? That's what money is for. Should the nation's wealth be redistributed? It has been and continues to be redistributed to a few people in a manner strikingly unhelpful.” -Kurt Vonnegut
“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” -John Steinbeck
“If you took the most ardent revolutionary, vested him in absolute power, within a year he would be worse than the Tsar himself.” -Mikhail Bakunin
“In all history, there is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.” -Sun Tzu
“...pero Capitán, obedecer por obedecer, así, sin pensarlo... sólo lo hacen gentes como usted, Capitán.” -Dr Ferreiro, Pan’s Labyrinth
“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is: infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern.” -William Blake
“Yeah, you really got my act down good, guys. That'll be great. ‘You know, when I’m done ranting about elite power that rules the planet under a totalitarian government that uses the media in order to keep people stupid, my throat gets parched! That’s why I drink Orange Drink.’” -Bill Hicks (note: album artwork may sometimes be nsfw) · Fool's Gold · FFOF · FF

Clearly, The Man is in a different league in terms of quantity alone. 130 threads (not even counting all these polls for the awards) is impressive. Quality over quantity, of course, but I think I'd be hard-pressed to argue that his threads are low quality, and since this is multiple choice, I don't mind putting a tick in his box.

jazzflower92 has produced an impressively diverse range of threads this year, from her usual Final Fantasy hypotheticals to Ebola and Norse Mythology, so I'll vote for her as well.

Lex has made probably the most important threads of this year, discussing the future direction of TLS and covering some of the big FFVII news (like the PS4 re-release). Another tick.

Everyone else on the poll has contributed a lot as well but I think I'll stop there

Seeing that I rarely venture out of GD, most of the threads I have read have been created by Aaron. He gets my vote.
