Really? After all of the obvious praise that Astropod got, it didn't make the slate? That's bullshit, Deck. Astropod (and Conchious too!) got just as much praise in the thread as Brimscone and Burnoulli did, which was more praise than Beacone got and more praise than both Bomshelk and Toxicone got (neither got any praise at all). Only Escarglow and Mollux got more.
I normally include all available options in my IRV votes, but I'm protesting Bomshelk and Toxicone. Neither should have been slated.
