217. OK, let's go...
As I understand the agreement: of the 10 rules, #4,#5,#6 go away as being paranoid fixations of mine (guilty as charged). Instead they are subsumed by rules #1 and #9 (which is now #6). I suggest we also get rid of rule #7 in order to cross OTOH's simplicity threshold (well known that 6 is simple but 10 ain't).

If you guys want to start a thread, it works for me. I think it should include the posts going back to OTOH's "of course I believe that a plausible scenario was ignored" and all those since so people know what we are talking about.

If I understand the form; the objective is to let George Bush win the White House "plausibly". One person puts out a scenario and puts forward an initial defense. Everyone then viciously attacks the plausibility of that scenario (but reasonably, virtuously, and with decorum). The defenders defend. We see what we learn and move on to the next.

I suggest one test scenario first to nail down the game. Then, I suggest we do the fraud scenario together (to the extent we can agree) because we all seem to agree that it is a "fit" even if some don't believe it is the "most plausible fit". Then, we try alternate scenarios that will fit equal or better. OK?

I suggest you set the initial assumptions, OTOH, and once we have agreed, I will drive the first test scenario. That will be "The Brilliant Karl Rove's super Brilliant strategy for Brilliantly winning in 2004". Mr. Rove has graciously agreed to let me drive this scenario for him as he has a previous engagement at his lawyers.

One agreement with TIA - if dead people vote, it counts as fraud.

One disagreement with everyone - notice rule #2. EVERYONE PLAYS.

Does that work for y'all?
