I wonder what your intent was with this 'game'. When loosing means 
actually nothing and the exercise is not time bound, it doesn't make 
much sense.

My intellectual curiosity is craving an explanation. I could make it 
interesting with something like: thread ends at 8am the morning of 
ApacheCon and the 'looser' brings to the infra@ table as many beers as 
many emails on this thread. If the 'looser' does not show up, he/she 
forfeits ASF membership (or some 'punishment' that fits the 'crime').

This would be something my brain could understand. So infra@, 4 beers 
from me so far.
