Now here’s the relevant info for our readers:

Now, we’re aware we provide entertainment more than easily usable information, so this category may not seem a natural fit for us.  But keep in mind: on any general definition of “information”, what we provide clearly fits, even if it is better termed “entertainment”.  Do you see an “entertainment” category?  No, you don’t.  And since we don’t run a bar or a distillery, the choices of category are clear: we are either the Best Marketing Campaign or the Worst Marketing Campaign (but for which whisk(e)y, we are not sure)–or else we belong in the Information Source category.  Put us in there.  You know you want to do it.  It’s so tempting.  Just give in.  Do it...  
OK, that just got creepy.  So how about this instead:  Please vote for us? If you did, we’d appreciate it.
