   I'd guess the former, myself. (That said, I am wondering what naked
singularity people like Dvandom or Eagle have fallen into that they 
haven't replied on a topic like this.)

   Well... The real reason is that I've got some fun ideas for the ongoing
silliness of the awards presentations (I have already indicated that
Pointless Awards Man I is going to escape from that broom cupboard eventually,
haven't I? Yes, I'm sure I've cackled over that prospect at some time or
other...)  But also, there is a certain amount of perverse pride involved
("you volunteered to do the RACCies, and then bunked out at the first sign
of problems? Sheeeyeah, you're a copout, man.")
