Cavalier of the Year voting ends in a couple days, and I've been tracking the results as they go. And I have to admit I'm not especially happy with what I see. The way things have played out in the voting pattern suggests shenanigans; specifically, the possibility of cheating and voting multiple times.
The absolute last thing I want to do is throw out a result just because I "don't like" what I see. The second to last thing I want to do is be played for a bloody fool and let some asshole decide my award - yes it's just a little thing but I take it seriously - by spending ten minutes applying votes to the same candidate.
I'm gonna ask that people do me a favor: in the comments section of this post, post who you voted for, and if you found the contest via a link, post the page it came from. Use a name - I don't care if you use a pseudonym or Internet handle or whatever, but don't post as "Anonymous." The results of that will determine whether or not I have to start over. Sorry to have to do this but I think it's necessary.
