    Congratulations, Grampy Bobby!

    You are the winner of The Bowmann Award, bestowed when applicable and appropriate
    on the Red Hot Pawn user who concocts a continuous and seemingly endless forum thread
    or happening dominated by him/herself and a few of his/her intimate friends.

    Well done!

    I didn't know Bobby/Bobbie was "that way."
    I support him/her in his/her life.
    It makes no difference to me/me. 🙂

    Thanks for the kind words, Bobby, but Andy's tiny contribution is hardly responsible for the
    Bowmannesque "popularity" of the linked words thread. Credit for this singular achievement
    rightfully goes to you, Bobby, and your coterie and your many, many, many hundreds of posts.

    Indeed. And let's extend extra thanks to the two or three contributors of record
    for their 2,300 posts, more or less, during the past 58 days.

    Hey! >-( My only contribution on the first 20 pages (I didn't look further than that) was to insert a chirping sound in recognition of the lack of action.

    You could rename the award the Red Night award and have the same criteria. Way too creepy to see Bowmann's name as a thread title.

    Right?

    I think it's also meant to convey just how cheap the intended "reward" is.

    HandyAndy is not showing GB much respect here. I'm guessing that wasn't the intent.

    I hope I never get a "Bowmann Award". To me, those would be fighting words. Might as well give out a "Hitler Medal".

    Shucks! That's nowhere near as prestigious as the Bowmann.

    You'd rather have won The Bowmann Award?

    really?

    Nice try, Limeboy! Bobby is fortunate to have such a devoted watchdog.
