Well, of course!  When there are an even number of posts, there is no middle person!

I'm posting in this old tread with the intention that we could maybe give the considerable price money to a charity in case no one is winning.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

There must be something in set theory that proves no one can win this.  The proof is trivial for 50% of all cases, the other 50% are a little tougher.

In order for there to be a middle person, there must be an odd number of posts.  Note that the original post does not have a number, but each subsequent post gets a "reply number".

So the "middle person" is the response number of the last response divided by two plus one (for the initial post).  An odd response number cannot have a middle person; there are actually two.

This post is odd, so there is no "winner".  BillO's response was 114.  Half is 57 plus one means post 58 was the winner.  Egad!  Me again! Eeek!

Bruce, if you just arrange to be the odd poster each time you have this wrapped up!
