This is the big one: Commenter of the Year. The award for the best overall quality in posts for calendar year 2012. This should go to the best representative of our community in all aspects of commenting: content, knowledge, humor, and consistency.
This poll is going to run until Midnight on January 4th, so that should give us enough time to get a good sampling of votes. Candidates are welcome to lobby for votes in the comments. Also, if you wish to vote for somebody not listed in the poll, please leave a comment with that name in the header.
Have at it, and good luck to all nominees!
