Is it acceptable to declare as fact that you are "considered" the best competition? The Nicholl Fellowships is widely considered the best, but even that subjective truth is not a fact.

And what about WME exec Chris Lockhart's claim on this forum that the managers/agents/producers who allegedly read Scriptapalooza entries don't request these scripts and are not offered compensation to read them, suggesting there is no guarantee that any of them are read at all?

Does Scriptapalooza pay any readers at all?

ETA: I originally posted this in the Announcements section after Scriptapalooza made that dubious claim. I thought my post was rejected or deleted, and only just noticed it had been moved here.
