Ras Mikaere "Eunuch" Enoch (Michael McCarty)

I find it fascinating that a full-blown kook like Michael McCarty, aka Ras Mikaere Enoch (in AUK we refer to him as Eunuch) has not won every award listed in the alt.usenet.kooks Award Descriptions.  Bob and Fluffy know that many have tried to help Ras win the awards he so desperately craves, but to date Eunuch has won but two awards:

Golden Killfile January 2012
Order of the Holey Sockpuppet February 2012

Previous attempts to make Ras happy (not an inclusive lits):

June 1994       -- Mentioned as a candidate for KotM
October 1994 -- Appeared on ballot for KotM.  2nd place finish.  Jason Kodish 16, Ras 11
May 1996 ------ Nominated for KotM, but did not appear on the ballot
May 2000 ------ Nominated and seconded for May KotM, but did not appear on the ballot
July 2000 ------- Nominated for June KotM, but apparently no second.  Did not appear on the ballot
September 2002-Appeared on ballot for KotM, lost to Lisa Gardner 14 votes, Ras 3

I think the reasons Eunuch has managed to avoid Kotm are threefold:

1) After two or three of Teh Eunuch's posts, most Usenet participants send Ras to Bozo Bin Hell
    (Guilty!)
2) Ras is a Morphin' Mammy Jammy!
3) See #1 and #2
4) Use your own theory

Isn't it about time Ras is awarded the dubious honor he has avoided since 1994?
