Now there's a few things I need to address.
1). How did I come up with the winner? Well, a multitude of factors came in to play. But the most important one was consistency in post quality. How did this member contribute to the intellectual melting pot of the community? How multi-faceted was his prose? Was his demeanor akin to a #1 Cora Genius or was he a rude-boy, Rhianna kid like Connor?
2). The state of the genius need not be alive! Indeed, as you will see, this genius is not an individual who is in the community before. You have to take that into consideration. He need not be active to be a smart person. Einstein, Galileo, Shakespeare - intellectuals of their time - are not acclaimed because their culture is something we yearn to replicate but rather because, in their time, in their epoch, they were not recognized and not appreciated.
And I think it's fair to say that during HIS time, this individual was NOT appreciated.
Any guesses? Well, you were all wrong. This gentleman's name was not said ONCE!
The winner is:
