Even if there was block voting, who cares? As I said earlier, I suspect that some PM'ing goes on lobbying for votes. I've gotten a few myself, though admittedly not in recent years. But seriously - what does it matter? It's a message board diversion with no prize beyond bragging rights. Anyone who'd cheat probably needs the win more than I do anyhow.

Folks need to lighten up. If the contest were actually meaningful and decided on good taste alone, I'd win every year instead of being vanquished by the Bjork-tolerant block.

I knew it was carlsson but still voted against him despite being a fellow prog-goon mate.

I was never going to vote for the worst list ever!

I didn't know it was C, but voted for the list 'cause I liked it more. Tough Bananas, A.

Honestly, I have to know...just have to...what the next five will be :D



I'd still like to know what the next 5 would have been.

I think we're owed that much as the price for our votes :x

Now that's a scandal of Lance Armstrong-like proportions. Who would stoop so low as to beg for votes?

First off- there has been no block-voting amongst the Prog-fraternity- I never have received any requests for votes from anyone. It even didn't clue in that that Fall-list was C until about half way the vote.

To be honest - I confess to having PM'd Snarfy to say "What the fuck, why are you voting against my list?" To his credit he said... "Ohhh good list, but I've voted and it's too late to change it!" or something to that effect. My main reason was because I know he almost always votes for my list every year... because he likes it, not because he knows who it is. That is the extent of the NYC BCB block voting. We generally vote the same way because we like similar stuff, or hate similar stuff. Livet would probably vote differently from most of the boys, but that's because she likes more prog than we do.

The first and last are very good.

The rest - resolutely average.
