Poll results

Well, it seems that I have won though it is not official yet. They are checking for ballot stuffing. It has been detected in most categories, and even this blog was a victim as 100 votes were stricken a couple of days ago. I do appreciate that some folks love this blog so much that they are willing to cheat on my behalf, but please, next time spare us the embarassment, or do not get caught :-) Or maybe it was chavistas trying to discredit me? In this land of magical realism all is possible!

At any rate, while we are waiting for the final result, commending the organizers for the extra work of checking for cheats, I must already thank all who voted for this blog, win or lose. The victory speech will have to wait for the official result, though Val has already conceded, probably very relieved not to have to shave his legs :-)

However there is one sour note. The category was the least voted of all, even with the mild cheating that we witnessed. Blogging in English seems to still be a rather US activity (and Australia as they trashed the UK in total votes) and a conservative one, if we are to judge by the results in other categories. Though I am sure that over time diversity will increase.

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the fourth day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the basic rules. I will be ruthless in erasing, as well as those who replied to any off rule comment.

Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
