Speaking in such broad certitudes is when people start throwing eggs at you, Dustin.
Seems a pretty obvious side effect to me and I've seen it on the boards myself. People start crying then others chime in, all caring, like the considerate human beings they are, try to figure out which script and then give a nicer review.
As yet another side effect there will always be two or three that will discuss their entries privately amongst themselves.
It's human nature... undeniable as far as I'm concerned.
One thing I'm curious about is the number of views. Some scripts have 600 to 800-plus views while others have far fewer. The only explanation would have to be the title, right? A catchy title means more people click on it?
I done did the spreadsheet for that a few OWCs back just to confirm/refute test the exact same hypothesis. There's little correlation between thread views and much of anything of value.
Instead, the high view count means some writers have OCD and just hafta read and reread their own reviews in process like crack rats. It runs up the count crazy. It's their time, can't hold it against them. Don't judge.
Also, if there's a comment war going on that'll also jack up the comments since everyone likes to spectate over a good cat fight.
I've only been around for 3 months, can't say I have good enough knowledge of the members and their writing style. Quite strongly leaning towards thinking "The Head" is IAmGlenn's. I could probably make an estimated guess on 2 other scripts, but I think I'll keep them to myself.
Interesting thread. I thought I'd chime in even if I'm not overly familiar with everyone.

BERT - when you gona join in? I don't think you have taken part since I joined. Would be nice to see you back, but I do appreciate the effort you do apply.
Thanks, Reef. Don made me quit playing because I always win.
Y'all get that's a joke, right?
Fact is, I am not a fast writer, and these darn things seldom align with my schedule. I need time.
And it sucks, too, because I had a really unique idea that refused to flesh itself out until the Saturday after submissions -- while I was mowing the yard -- which is when I always do my best thinking.
Cheers to those writing and reading, though -- it's you guys keep the engine running.
