Ding ding ding, we have a winner!
Give this man a prize!
There is no way to win in this regard (at least on this forum). Too many wins and it is a weak era, not enough wins and you fail to meet the necessary requirements.
Take solace in the fact that given enough time, all the stubborn people who cling to their own eras will go away, one way or another, and records from those eras will be more objectively viewed.
It is too bad that nothing but the grim reaper can cure human ignorance.
