One of those boys hadn't posted a thing on these forums for months. He even wrote a goodbye post. Only once these polls came he got all his friends to chime in and vote for him and suddenly started making 'contributions' on these forums. It's funny because the lowest guy actually did more than the inactive higher guy had done in months.
But popularity contest it is. Idiotic system.
QFT and good point. People voting for someone because of advertisements or friend relations is hardly justified. Might as well just put a monkey up there because we 'like' him better. Best part is you're right too. I checked the poster's history and it's funny how true this post is.
