|01:44 pm - MJD - CC officer?|
Apparently, someone cast a vote for me to become an officer on ADF's Clergy Council. I got a vote for Clergy Council Registrar.
I don't know who wrote me in, though I'd like to take a moment to thank them for their confidence in me.
Now, I'd like to take a moment and look at the amusement that I, ADF's newest Dedicant Priest, currently feel at having gotten a write-in vote for CC Registrar.
For those un-aware, the CC has a set of officers who decide on clergy credentials. They don't do much else.
The registrar basically just keeps the roster of Clergy Council members up to date, something I imagine I could probably manage.
But the real source of my amusement comes not from being the newest Dedicant Priest on the block, or the fact that it's a write-in vote, or that I have no idea who wrote me in. It comes from the fact that the last time I was written in for a Registrar position, I won.
Yes, I once won the election for the Magician's Guild Registrar because I was the only person anyone voted for, apparently, and I was a write in. The funny thing was, I didn't notice for over a week, because I wasn't even reading mail on that list, and no one bothered to tell me I'd won with a personal email. Then, once I found out that I'd won (via an archive search for a post I'd made years ago), I had to tell the Guild Chief that I wasn't eligible to run (or win) because I wasn't a member of the Magician's Guild.
I suppose that at least this time I was at least eligible to run for the position, but I'm still amused at the situation.

Can you decline a write-in vote as you would a nomination?
I would imagine so. If you couldn't, you'd end up with people winning who don't want to serve. And that would be bad.
I don't know. Sometimes the ones that don't want to serve do the best job, and the ones that want to serve are the ones with questionable motives.

I think I've heard something like that before
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone capable of getting themselves made President should by no means be allowed to do the job.
To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.
