Cool. Did you know he recently applied for a Latvian citizenship? I don't think he'll get it though.

You know Hilde is not like this!

Evita, Dombrovskis surprisingly resigned. Officially taking the 'political responsibility' for the Maxima supermarket collapse but Delfi says there are other reasons behind this too. It's not like he had anything to do with this tragedy. You said you liked him and he seems to have done a pretty good job under the circumstances.
We've had our PM for over 8 years and he doesn't even think of resigning even if the country is stagnating.

Yes, I was very surprised he resigned. I don't know if there are other reasons or not. He did have some difficulties regarding some issues but then, who doesn't? Oh well, maybe a change will be good. We have new elections next year anyway.

But wait, are you really saying you've had the same PM for 8 years? Really??? How did I not know about this?

Not really worth knowing.
He's like the longest serving PM in Europe now that Juncker was forced to resign in Luxembourg. We have our parlamentary elections in 1.5 years or so I think. We do need change methinks but I don't see any acceptable alternatives, sadly.

So, they kicked out the best off season competition (ACC) and they kept the one that causes the most problems season after season (Popularity contest)?



They should either allow both or forbid them both.

I don't agree. ACC caused people to troll more and that is against site rules. I don't think people trying to be too nice for the pop contest is against the rules, that's the difference. But I wouldn't mind if they reinstated the ACC and just banned the people who were trolling

The ACC was straightforward and direct. In your face.
The Popcontest has always been a backstabbing contest.

ACC is more honest IMO. Popcon has always caused more grievance.

The problem with banning trolls is that it's hard to come up with a clear definition of what trolling is + a lot of posters will wave with their right to freedom of expression, moaning about censorship, etc.

Well, you're right. It's difficult to control the trolls, that's why the ACC was eliminated. There's no such reason to ban the pop contest even if it is a backstabbing contest.

My experience with the Popcon in the last couple of years is that it may have "popularity" in the title, it may sound more friendly (and yes, some of the more friendly and outgoing posters did get far in it, Betty for example) but that's only the flimsy surface. All in all: Popcon has always been a backstabbing event while ACC was straightforward and more honest.

I really think that we should have both of them or none at all.


But we're probably going to have to agree to disagree on this.

I'm not disagreeing with this, only with the notion that "if there is no ACC then there shouldn't be a popcon either". But anyway. I don't plan on participating this year.
