Each query was read by three different people who each voted yes/no.
Then the queries were separated into two piles:
1. The queries with three no's
2. Everything else
Each of us read the remaining queries, marking yes or no as we read.
Once a query accumulated three no's, it joined the pile of "not this time."
We were left with a pretty fair chunk of queries.
We read them all again and ranked them.
And then we had a fistfight.
Then Suzie brought out the firehose and threatened to melt me down like the Wicked Witch of the West.
Meredith Barnes leaped in front of me shrieking "no! no! She doesn't melt when you douse her with water, she turns into a REAL shark!!"
Suzie turned off the hose just in time.
Cooler heads prevailed.
And we have two winners.
Kris in Brooklyn
Joe in Florida!
I called them both tonight to share the glad tidings.
I love this job, I do!
