Post a comment, win a holiday

To celebrate the fast-approaching 500,000th reader comment, ScienceBlogs is running a contest.

To enter, all you need to do is post a comment on any of the blogs in the SB network, using a valid email address. Alternatively, you can sign up to the new weekly newsletter.

When the 500,000th comment is posted, the contest will be closed. One email address from a comment posted at around that time will then be randomly selected. 

One lucky reader will win a 5-day trip to the world’s greatest science city, as voted by you. (Cambridge, U. K. currently tops the poll.) 50 runners-up will receive a stylish ScienceBlogs mug.

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if the winner turns out to be a rabid Creationist or some insane spammer that one often sees herein.

    Does the comment have to be relevant? Or can we be blatantly angling for a win?

    Although there’s nothing in the contest rules about the nature of the winning comment, I think you should try to make it relevant, if only because you might get banned for consistently posting nonsense comments.
