Grandma Essay Contest - Somebody's In Troublejohnb8/02/05 12:44pmFiled to: AnnouncementsContestsWinnersXtatix0EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkOK. I'll admit I was pretty lax with the rules of this contest and that's my own fault. But it seems that entrant Andy has 8900+ friends or, as he admitted, a very simple PHP script and Asheesh, who ran up in the polls pretty quickly which is fishy, might have also used a script. While I commend them on their hack-i-tude, I've decided, since we didn't really have any rules to begin with and a number of contestants took it upon themselves to twiddle the numbers for no good reason, to name Donna the winner because quite obviously she doesn't specifically care if she wins or loses or else she would have written some Perl script. Congratulations, Donna. You're a winner. We'll contact Xtatix for you and get your grandma a nice new MP3 player.
