No good reason - somebody else had done it that way so I followed along like the sheep I am when submitting answers to other TDs. :)

I do it to prevent the post from being unnecessarily long. I figure if somebody wants to see it, they'll expand it.

What I'm more curious about is why the entrant list is even posted to begin with. That I'm not sure of, but it seems to be convention, so I roll with it.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

As a participant it's helpful to have available so that I can get confirmation that I submitted and/or it was successful. (There have been times I've completed a form, or a PM, and forgotten to send.) I know that Vermonter's tracker includes a way to generate a confirmation message with all the answers that were submitted, but I haven't seen one of those in a while (and I didn't send myself for the one TD I hosted).

That's why I have included it - so people know that I have indeed received their entries.

One Sheep and one Singleton. Perfectly balanced.

I have apparently greatly underestimated people’s memories of Nick Price and his home country.
