Conclusion FEATURES No-Shine | II The best of the best of the worst matches of the week. Once a week the best verse of the one-sided no-show battles will be showcased for your enjoyment The RSTL Spotlight | III Quite possibly the most enjoyable match that I've read all week. And definately the most surprising match of the bunch to actually leave a smile on my face. Two writers are showcased here for producing a quality match very low in the rankings. The Cover Story | IX Are voters becoming too critical, or are spelling and grammatical errors fair game for discrimination. A discussion on the problem of such grade school errors and their place in our league. I | INTRODUCTION Decentish week (and yes, that is now a word). Show up rate was eh. Even the people that did show up to battle seemed as if they gave less than half the effort to actually impress the voters. Oh well, just a slow week in general with an abundance of no shows and probably more sign outs than sign ins. But don't think for a minute that the RSTL is plummeting. That is beyond our realm of function. I would like to thank those of you that showed up and also those of you that were no showed against, I know that it is rough to gain momentum and motivation from a match against yourself. Nevertheless, please continue to support this league and our efforts to offer you the best creative writing forum on the face of the world wide web. Again, I appreciate the efforts of all of you and will continue to do so. As long as J o o k and I are moderators of this league, we will continue to be precise in our efforts while striving to provide a source of outlet for all of you writers. We do this for you and no other. Please remember that and take into consideration that when you shit on this league by not showing up for a battle, you are also shitting on us. I know that most of you probably do not care who you're shitting on, but for those that do, just remember that. Sooner than later there will be a rule enforced wherein two no shows will result in some sort of banishment from this league for an x amount of time. Of course, this is just an outline of what me and J o o k have yet to discuss, but I would just like to plant that into your heads so that those of you who actually take this serious and enjoy the art of creative writing will know that as easily as the opportunity is given to you, it can be taken away. At this time, I would like to extend a warm invitation to those who disagree with the way I write my magazines, or to those who may disagree with my views or the way I express my opinions, or simply to those whom may just want to help out and have a sincere concern for the future of this league. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am always open to suggestions and help from those who are truly interested.
