LOL, Skunkee. I'm surprised anyone read (much less cared about) what I wrote.

I was trying to be funny. I failed. I give me a 0.

I applaud all who get published including Hairy Pooter and Mathemagician writers. At least they read and write.

The truth is, I rate each quiz based on how much time I believe the quizzer took in creating. Voice is big with me: do I hear the quizzer or Wikistupidia? Is it interesting? Did I learn? Was I amused?

Am I old or just bitter?

meh

Judging by your username... wink

I don't think being either has anything to do with it. I much prefer a factual quiz loaded with an author's personal flair, tact, and style than one reading like a Wiki page. That can affect my opinion more than most.

I agree. The few editor's choice quizzes I've selected have all been quirky and individual, and that's what it takes to get an "excellent" out of me, too.
