I knew you would have some lame excuse not to do it. So if you don't feel the need to complain to him directly because it's already (according to you) been done, then why are you wasting your time doing it here?<quoted text>
Complain to him directly, huh? That's a great suggestion...except for the fact that it's already been done.
Plenty of people voiced their complaints while that week of trivia was going on, and it did go directly to Richie because @TheRealSambora was included in the tweets. For him to feign ignorance at this point would just be silly. When he took the step of announcing the names of the winners himself the last two days, that action was, by default, an admission that he knew things had gone wrong.
But that is three months old now and what's done is done. I just can't believe that after all that went wrong with that week of trivia, he would have followed it up with such a silly mistake last week with American Idol. I mean c'mon dream, you have to admit it's a pretty big oversight on his part. The man lives in California and he didn't take the west coast time zone into account before asking the question and announcing a winner.
You're also wasting your good discussion skills on really stupid topics: Richie's girlfriends/ex-wife, his daughter's fashion sense...and now unimportant contests (are you really so desperate to win something?).
I wish you would put half as much effort in discussions about topics of substance, like...I don't know...the music!!
(As far as the American Idol contest goes... Who cares that west coast audiences couldn't participate? Non-Americans couldn't either. Most contests, both Richie's and the band's, are only for Americans. Not that I care.)
