The Not Ready for the Algonquin Roundtable Society (aka the Style Invitational
Losers) is a loose band of marginally sane individuals addicted to humor contests and other outlets for their smartass shenanigans.
Losernet traffic is largely given over to mutual ridicule, whining and post-deadline/pre-publication entry sharing. In-jokes and juvenile humor abound.
Having said that, the strongest glue in Losernet isn't getting ink, or making fun of West Virginia, or one-upmanship (though all those activities can figure prominently in fun Loser Activities.) The strongest glue we have is our friendship for each other. You can join Losernet easily, but that doesn't make you a friend. If you disregard the feelings of others, are deliberately unkind, or consistently refuse to get a clue about some things, then people, even Losers, probably won't like you.
Anyone who has been published in the Style Invitational or who has entered the contest may join.
NOTE: Losernet is NOT approved for all audiences. We reserve the right to refuse subscribe requests from anyone who seems unclear on the whole Loser/NRARS concept. Hey, it's for your own good, really. Trust us: you'd thank us later if you knew what we were saving you from.
Not scared off? Very well: to subscribe, send a message to email@example.com that contains these two things:
- Your FIRST AND LAST NAME
- The Week Number of the last Style Invitational contest that you entered (whether any of your entries got printed or not)
