I was probably a bit too ambitious with the comment contest, considering this is a test site with limited content at this point. Had there been even one comment I would have felt obligated to give the prize to that commenter, but since there aren’t I’m changing the rules and will keep doing so until I give the prize away.
From now on any relevant comment is eligible for the free copy of Preserving Democracy, and on October 1 I will choose a winner with the assistance of a few others. If there is no eligible comment by October 1, the prize will go to the first eligible comment after that time.
Future contests will, I hope, be run closer to the rules, but in general, I like to give the prizes away!
