Hi, let's hear more opinions about the latest suggestion: To require contest entrants to submit a short paragraph of feedback for all the other entries to the contest in order for their own entry to be valid (about 3-5 lines of text), and to explicitly encourage judges to do the same (although they won't be forced to do it).

Sounds reasonable. Although if you find the contest getting a lot longer someday (fifteen entries, thirty or forty voters) you'd want to revoke that rule -- it would be neither practical nor necessary.

It's a nice distinction to tell American soldiers (and Iraqis) to die in
Iraq for the sake of democracy (ignoring the question of whether it's
*working*) and then whine that "The Constitution is not a suicide pact."
