The Historic Message Of Robert ('zilla) Carey :

Announcing The First-Ever P*I*N*K*Y Awards

Subject: Announcing the PINKYS: (warning: bandwidth waste)

Hi fellow floydian fans of _all_ eras!

As I've mentioned before, there is a shadow group watching echoes from nearby. We have observed the various posts from this past year and have decided to give some exceptional posters honorable mention. To do so, we have created the "Pinky" awards to honor outstanding contributions to echoes. We have also created another set of awards, the "Webbers" , which similarly notes posters of dubious achievement. The "Webber" list will be posted shortly (unless this "Pinky" list generates too much flame for bobzilla. %^)
