Look, you're going to look silly now.

I said "particularly faces new". That first word implies preference not exclusivity. "Browbeat" is the right word to use because you're trying to change the nominations list after they were published - look it up: [link] Next up is the fact that no one in the software categories are named because people should judge the software, not the author. You also point out that you have written articles and made mailing list posts, which is nice, but so have many other people. According to the drobe database, you wrote 7 articles this year out of the 270-odd that were published. All articles are warmly welcomed, but how is that "substantial"?

Finally, and here's the kicker - it is my opinion that the contributions of the people nominated are just as good as your contributions outside of the GCCSDK and Firefox (which are both nominated and both contain features contributed by other developers, I'll hasten to add). Please, take a leaf from the book of whoever wins the 'best general contribution' this year - you might learn a little humility in time for New Year's Eve 2006.

Richard Ashbery, who used ArtWorks and Photodesk to create his images, showed off patterns and colourful illustrations to punters, who told him his work made a change from the oils and watercolour masterpieces usually exhibited.
