It's ba-ack! A (sleeper-free) "Lean-n-Mean VIII"

by
Oct 24, 2009 (Updated Dec 2, 2009)


The Bottom Line Let's show ...tom... what a good time he's missing out on. The mission: strong reviews at 666 words or less.

Epinions' own sleeper54 (aka ...tom...) is synonymous with several things on this site: a fondness for ellipses (...), his smiliemoments, his ubiquitous presence on the message boards, and many more. Perhaps what he is best/most fondly known for is his annual Lean-n-Mean Write Offs, in which he challenges members to write Very Helpful reviews (although Helpful is also good) in 666 words or less. This year, Tom is going to have his hands full offline during the time he typically holds the Write Off, so he has asked jenniferkateab and myself to guest host Lean-n-Mean VIII for him.

You can read about previous Lean-n-Mean entries on Tom's profile page. In short, the rules are:

* Entries will be accepted from now through November 30, 2009
* Write a review on any product your heart desires
* Keep that review to 666 words or less (we're not going to count those for you, so you're on the honor system)
* Only enter reviews with an overall 'Helpful' or 'Very Helpful' rating
* No 'Lean-n-Mean' in the title
* Link back to this post in your review
* Drop a comment here, or send an email to Jennifer or I to include your entry
* Write as many entries as you'd like
* Write in as many categories as you'd like
* Invite others to join (i.e., you're reading someone else's review, the review looks lean-n-mean, so you comment that they should join in the fun)
* Double-dipping in other Write Offs is strongly encouraged (currently, there are a Breast Cancer Awareness Write-Off, a Bunnylicious Wicked Hallows Write-Off, a Texas Sweden Write-Off, a Twelve Ornaments of Christmas Write-Off, a Get Those Holiday Reviews Out Write-Off, and the Second Annual All Things Disney Write-Off).
* HAVE FUN!

At the very least, we will keep in the sleeper tradition of tracking participants and categories here. Depending on how much insomnia I endure this month, I may or may not link to the actual reviews. UPDATE: I foolishly decided to link the reviews, and appreciate everyone's patience in the delay it took for their reviews to appear here.

Thanks in part to Stephen_Murray's recruiting efforts in the category, 'Movies' won out over 'Books,' with several other categories contributing reviews in the double-digits.

Jennifer and I are blown away by the response we have gotten to Lean-n-Mean this year. We cremated last year's total of 277 reviews. The final count, as of 12/1/09 is:

499 reviews in 17 categories:
