Are you speaking from experience?

Perhaps. Rationality is, after all, a tool one can use to justify just about anything, including zealotry.

You can claim to be rational while being a zealot, sure. As for actually being it...

Indeed, I'm not a zealot...

And here's proof I have played other engines games

As it happens, there are way more AGS games I haven't played than the sum total of other engines' freeware games I haven't played... the reason is idleatry, not idolatry!

Too bad I can't access the AGS awards page. Or vote in the AGS awards.

...

This was all just a plan to make it impossible for me to vote!

I also tried from the University PCs and couldn't access bigbluecup.

Can't access the AGS Awards page? As in http://www.americangirlscouts.org/AGSAwards/? If so, the DNS your ISP is using is likely broken, since bigbluecup.com and americangirlscouts.org are hosted on the same IP, and the server is most definitely online...

Hmm, AGS awards page works now but bigbluecup still doesn't. Well, the problem is most probably with my ISP, must contact them.

Eventually my ISP responded, apparently the nameservers were buggy at some point way back. I don't really understand all these technical things. But anyway, since the internet service provider changed a while back, everything's working fine again.

Works for me, too. When I couldn't access it the problem was with a name server somewhere, and my ISP couldn't do anything about it. If you can access the page from some other computer (work, school, library, neighbor's, etc.) I have a hunch this might be the case - although admittedly I know very little about the technical side of networks and the Internet.
