    Can't say I like this very much. Half the SPT votes are phoned-in from people who can't even be bothered posting here (yes, I just played the "this is not Smogon" card), and it's questionable if such a totally cancerous thing should even be in the cards for a vote (yes, I just played the "logic vs. zombie horde" card). I'd suggest revisiting it after this season.

    I generally agree. I think it's important we establish our own tiering philosophy and in terms of that, this vote represented a massive fuck-up because I really think SPT has no place in it and I would have rather had no ban for that reason (as much as that's a really shitty option). Having said that, it's also just that I think SPT is really fucking stupid- I think smogon ought to go SleepTrap since it's just a more sensible ban but w/e. There were also some issues with the vote in terms of people voting ambiguously and not clarifying their position. So yeah, a lot to take from this. I hope to revisit this after the season, but we'll see how we go

    EDIT: Vote is closed, but I'm leaving this thread open as a discussion
