Advice: don't get ants in your pants

Here's a really easy tip for all submitters to avoid needlessly biasing reviewers against your submission: don't get ants in your pants. Don't use all caps to yell at or talk down to reviewers. Don't get persnickety. Don't try to influence reviewers by saying they are not following criteria if they don't accept your nomination while at the same time providing no details in your description or supplemental information. Don't let irritation at past rejections show through in your nomination text.

Essentially, just leave emotion out of it to avoid eliciting an emotional reaction in reviewers that might cause them to reject your nomination when they would have otherwise accepted it.
