Ask the Nutts. . .a Q&A column (a cross between Dear Abby and Cliff Claven)
(an explanation of what it is all about)
Members, especially new members are encouraged to send in questions to "The Nutts". The three Nutts brothers will do their best to answer the questions.

R. Nutts, PHD – doctorate English, the Official Conquer Club expert
H. Nutts, MBA – looks at the business/economic/efficient side of things
A. Nutts, BS – lesser educated of the trio, gives a layman’s viewpoint

Have a question for the Nutts? PM David Hoekstra, Gozar, or click here and post in the thread.
Q: "Should organizers be allowed to join their own tournaments?" - PaulusH

A: R. Nutt, PhD: No, pro sports organizers don’t normally play in their own events, etc. and the organizer could easily schedule themselves an easier bracket/route to victory.

H. Nutts, MBA: Yes, why not? People, this is a GAME that only costs $25 or so a year to play. Just make a rule and check the tournament bracket, etc. – or post that organizer will or will not be in the tournament. ? But let’s schedule a tournament of All Admins and ALL Farmers to see who the REAL players are. It’s not brain surgery.

A. Nutts, BS: Who cares? Show me a tournament of anal retentive farmer watchers where the loser gets kicked out of CC and I’ll pay to watch that one.


Peter Gibbons has decided to pass on his interview this week. Next week we will have an interview with owenator. All questions are submitted by readers of the newsletter.
You can submit your questions in this thread.
