In this case - the gain is "I might be able to get a hug".
Not from you. No one wants a hug from a dirty foreign hippie.
But I'm thinking that if people buy Girl Scout cookies from Celena, she might be so happy and excited that she could momentarily break free from her 12-year old restraints and give me some of that "affection" that you people are always going on about.
You love Girl Scout cookies and are constantly wanting to annoy me with your unwashed affections... I have a way of you getting those cookies delivered to your doorstep, and allowing me to receive that "hug" thing from someone I actually care about! (as opposed to you, who I just want to torture!)
https://digitalcookie.girlscouts.org/scout/celena7069 is the link.
If you don't want cookies, but want to send them to the military and/or veterans groups (perhaps as a plot to stop all wars by distracting them with cookies), there's an option for that as well. Just follow the link.
If you don't want cookies - and have no interest in any of this, scroll past this part.
Buy. Don't buy. Either way you will feel my wrath! There's no escaping that part. I'm just blatantly misusing my power over a captive audience! :D
Now that we've gotten that bit out of the way, there is also some business:

The statement I make to get people talking in the Green Room:
How do you decide what to vote for every week?
What is that line between "Yeah, I'll click the box" and "I don't think I will"...
Not just "it appealed to me" or "didn't appeal to me". I'm looking for specifics!
What is it that you are looking for in an entry, and what is something that someone could do to push them over that line (in either direction) in their own work?
