The Week 193 and XXXVIII Ringers

The Czar has on a number of occasions referred to the pressure exerted on him to tinker with the weekly results, to make them look more like America. His refusal to do that has been steadfast and adamantine, and to defuse suggestions that he is favoring a small group of regulars, he ran the first pseudonymous contest in Year 4, Week 193. Regular contributors were forbidden to enter under the own names, but were encouraged to adopt a false identity for that one week. Most of the winners selected for print turned out to be disguised regular Losers, that time and again when the same was done for Week XXXVIII of the Restored Style Invitational.
