Yes, what exactly are the criteria for a nomination?
There's always been a lot of tension between Lois and me, and it's not so much that I want to kill her, it's just, I want her to not be alive anymore.

That, ah...seems rather straightforward, to me.

But specifics! What does it mean by "how they participate on YWS"?

This is only out of curiosity, by the way, I'm not seeking nomination (and it's looking doubtful I'd be given one :P)

I have to disagree. I'm pretty sure SPEW mean Snoinks Perfectly Evil Weapon.
Never forget who you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.

So, what does SPEW stand for? And how do they pick who is a nominee and who's not; or is everyone on YWS a nominee?

Oh Grif, don't get them too excited! When they find out the truth, it'll be like when they found out that santa isn't real!
