    In spite of your fine, ongoing efforts at recycling old jokes, you really dropped the ball here.

    You had the perfect opportunity to breathe new life into the old “the peasants are revolting” joke, and you completely failed to do so.

    Please understand that this does nothing to diminish our admiration of you and your site, but it does force us to downgrade your Perfect rating to Almost-Perfect. Please note that if you disagree with our ruling, you have 30 days to file an appeal, and regardless of that, if you have 6 months of consistent recycling, your rating will be restored.

    With kindest regards,
