The Readers Poll


Contestant Disqualification

It is with a heavy heart and regret that I have to disqualify one of the 26 Contestants for the Lainy's Hottest Blogoversary Writing Competition: A Bloggers Celebration!

Since the Poll began, this Contestant has beseiged me with unstoppable and unfounded complaints about her Poll.

The polls that she received were incorrect, highly dubious for entries that were pointing to non-existent identifications, repeated entries, something that Poll Daddy (the third Party poll service) would prevent further submission from the same Pollster.

I have been running from pillar to post with her complaints and it has reached a point of ridicule. Instead of being cooperative, she has now published two scathing posts at her Blog (HERE and HERE)  about her complaints and the response she received.

She has failed to let it be known in this POST that she did get FULL assistance and that she was even sent a Screen Capture to prove that her Poll was working perfectly fine.

She also failed to acknowledge publicly that she was told that her Pollsters would be given another chance to make their Polls good. We had to request for her Poll to be reset so that her Pollsters could make their second attempt after 6 pm on April 8th.

Regrettably, their second Poll was as disastrous as their first.

And yet she keeps bad mouthing about the Poll when 25 other Contestants have not uttered a single complaint to me about theirs malfunctioning or their Pollsters encountering problems with the Poll format.

Again, this is not something that I have jumped to making a hasty decision to disqualify the Contestant. 

I, the credible judges and the IT professionals who are helping me make this endeavor a success have been working tirelessly to make sure that FAIR PLAY is taking place. We can not just sit here and simply allow the contestant to ruin our efforts. 

Therefore, Contestant Number 13, Gagay of walkingnewspaper, you are disqualified with immediate effect.

Thank you Pictures, Images and Photos
