    Here's your chance to vote on the name of the new forum which shall hold things that are more graphic, more open, and more "adult" than others on this site. The forum will be ADULTS ONLY and over 18 years of age. It will not be ALL porn, and the porn that it will have will have limits (we will nail that one later).

    It doesn't have to be in the theme with Cassablanca but if you think it should, vote on it.

    If it isn't too late to add a possibility,
    I would like to suggest "The Playground".

    Sorry guys, no new nominations. We will go with what we have above and then, later on, if it deems prudent, we can always run a new poll. :)

    The Usual Suspects is a group of people, not a location wherein those people might meet.

    The Gin Joint is the kind of place Id expect to meet The Usual Suspects.

    That is one possible way to view the two. But in the alternative I will just say that although both names are fine choices, one is creative and descriptive with panache while describing its clientel and is original in its use. The other is good, definitley, but descriptive of a hundred other joints, many with the same name. Do we want something that is good but common? Or do we want something that is both good and unique for the name of the new and unique forum at Global Affairs? Something that when somone says to another anywhere on the Internet did you read the post at (blank). The person being asked will instantly know what and where the board is that is being mentioned!

    I still think a midi song should play when viewing the forum.
    "You must remember this" song from Casablanca would be a nice touch.

    Absolutely, I imagine it would have as positive an effect as post counts!

    Since there is no clear winner...

    As you all have noticed, the voting has been "tight" with no clear winner.

    Does everybody think it would be a good idea to have a run-off?

    The top four are:

    1) The Gin Joint 8
    2) The Usual Suspects 7
    3) The Asylum 5
    4) The Sewer 4

    Since there were so many choices we had votes all over the place.

    So, what do you think, should we have a poll to decide whether or
    not we should have a poll to decide on the name of the new forum?
    Or can we just get straight to the matter!

    i think what might make a bit more sense is to have a runoff between the 2 at the top which are close.

    or just go with the one that got the most votes.

    We must have a run off election! The true will of the people must be known!

    The low vote count is a reflection that many people were probably either turned away from the polls or they voted but their votes were not counted.

    Some people were confused by the ballot and afterwards were seen crying inconsolably as they tearfully told of their fears that they marked the wrong place on the ballot.

    The computer that counted the votes may have had errors in it. We all know about the problem with electronic chads!

    This thing should be challenged in the court and even a recount should be implemented. If the results dont come out right, then we should count them again! If they still dont come out right then count them one more time or as many times until my, uh, the peoples will is known!

    If necessary this should go all the way to the Supreme Court!

    Really though, since I have a vested interest in the results and am biased I will respect the wishes or outcome no matter how we arrive at it---either as it is now or with a runoff. Whatever the members and or ethics thinks best.

    *Obviously*, the new name should be-GJUSAS-Gin Joint filled with the Usual Suspects on the way to the Asylum via the Sewer :)
