If that's not extortion, I don't know what is. :roll:

The extortion only works because you craizes have a (... crazy) obsession with winning. So, it's all your fault Alex.

If extortion doesn't work, we could always try blackmail

I have nothing to be blackmailed for (and you don't know who I am). But I am not extorting any money, I am giving you a recipe to improve your probability of winning that's all ;-)

I doubt its wise to blackmail a mod, its bound to end in the blackmailer getting banned.

Unless it's such a powerful blackmail that they can't ban you for fear of you making good on your threats... Dun dun dun...

And Canalon isn't extorting, he's just encouraging bribery :D.

This could easily turn into a type of auction with everyone trying to outbid everyone else, and the winner pays the money to the mods and gets to win the thread.

No I think that we should just give us our accounts info and let you all pay. and then lock the thread when the higher bidder posts... And we will just post a last message to congratulate him/her on behalf of the moderating team ;)
