Like it or not, Bruce is not the only candidate with (more
or less) "I'm famous, vote for me" as part of the manifesto.
I really hope that it counts for nothing, but I'm sure everyone
can think of other elections which have become little more than
beauty contests.

I'm not standing because I can't make the commitment I think it
needs and I think I'm too ugly for a beauty contest in this
community anyway, but here how I'd've ended my manifesto:

Please vote for the board promises you like best, more than fame
or figureheads, and please don't hesitate to remove anyone who
breaks their promises.
