Best Post: Could NEVER decide
Best Forum Member: that's really hard...there are so many great ones! Maybe this one

Best Authority: FA, except on the Claimant board, because once you click, it's all Tsar Doug
Best Argument: Haha, maybe the one over whether or not the prettiest GD was a 'stupid' topic or not

Best Forum Member: AGRBear.

Because, much as it annoys almost everyone, including me at times, she has at least a mind if her own, is not a drivelling NAOTMA fan, asks interesting questions, is not prepared to accept the standard answers as gospel, is generally polite in the face of abuse and has put up with more sneering than I think I'd endure.

Best Moderator:  all of them for continuing to allow Bear's heresies in the face of the standard orthodoxies.

Best topic:  Anything on the question of survivors that doesn't involve Anna Anderson.

Best authority: Richard Cullen for the work he has been doing and the information he has provided, based on a lifetime in police and forensic work, on the murder of Rasputin.  Keep it up Richard.

SEASONS GREETINGS TO ONE AND ALL ON A SITE THAT CONTINUES TO ENTRANCE ME AND WIND ME UP AT THE SAME TIME IN EQUAL MEASURE.
