GOAT=Fed, I think you're looking at the ACC as some kind of achievement or something that posters strive for. Sure there the people who will purposely troll and troll in very offensive ways, but other that R=FK and maybe a few other posters who appear at the end of the year, not many actually try to win this. Many tards think they are high and mighty and always right, so this is kind of a fun way to bring them back down to earth. Just look at the two withdrawals that we had. I can assure you that both of these guys could have done well in the contest but couldn't face the truth of what people actually think of them.
Are some of the people that get nominated actually good posters? Sure, but I don't think they mind participating and just going out in the first round. If anything the ACC does clean up GM. Have you noticed how one of the frontrunners for ACC was very quiet before his withdrawal but is now back to his old games in GM. Hell, MTF should require people to participate in ACC... and the winner should get a one year ban.
