Agreed to the "boo to the Ballot stuffers".
Fan's here are aware because we kept them up on it I think, but basically we had a LOT of people creating sock accounts to stuff the ballot box. That's neither fair, nor mature (it's a toy line for Christ's sake) that they did this, but what are you going to do? I spoke with some administrators at a few other sites and they too flushed out the "cheaters", but I didn't speak with everyone at every site, and I noticed the same stuff went on at other site's forums.
Some seemed to catch it, others did not, or didn't pay close enough attention to bother. The same sock accounts were turning up at most boards though, so it's no shock this was fairly wide spread.
