Turns out Rule 8 wasn't dead after all - - just dangling from a thread.
Rule 8 - TIEBREAKERS
In the event that two or more persons are tied for votes, the person to be kicked off will be determined by the following tiebreakers:
1. Most self-inflicted wounds. (most prior missed votes, invalid votes, etc., including the round in question)
2. Most prior votes against (ie most prior "wounds" of any sort- - not including the current round) - - This will obviously not apply in Round One.
3. The last person (of those who are tied) in the round in question to have submitted their vote to me. (Sometimes it pays to be quick on the draw).
