    On 11/13, MrGayCom.com will award one man the big prize. However, getting there wasn't easy. Four of the final 15 were eliminated due to cheating. I learned all about auto voting in this campaign.

    What reasoning would someone have to cheat?

    In cases like this, there are always those to whom the prize has more value than the ideals that the prize represents.
    There are also those that may wish to subvert the contest for some twisted political purpose.

    Nothing new.

    How many truly altruistic 'best of' contests are there. I think it would be better to try to 'be' the best man, than 'win' the best man prize.

    Those people have a very loose definition of "muscle stud".

    Maybe next time they'll code it so each IP address can only vote once.

    Then again this may be above Gay.com's programmers... it's taken them how long to get the kinks worked out of their new AJAX system?

    That is HYSTERICAL!!!!!

    I had a shit ton of votes for a while and then someone goose cock charged ahead and had over 30,000 votes...

    I'm glad some of them got booted... however it appears not ENOUGH of them were... Prosser should have been cited for cheating.

    Reasons for cheating:

    Some people have WAY too much time for the internet.

    Some people think being recognized online is just as cool as being in front of paparazzi.

    Some people just want to be told they are the hottest bowl of chowder.

    Some people think the award means something other than hosting some random event with a drag queen a couple times until the next chance to drool at someone else comes along.

    Some people are mentally ill.

    Some people have way too low aspirations in life.

    Some people are all of the above, and reflect why I am single.

    I think those 15 weren't that impressive..... I'm pretty sure if you randomly picked 15 guys from Real Jock, youd get a much better bunch lol.

    Well I noticed the same thing with Paul Simmons in the Community Leader section. He moved 18,000 votes overnight and I don't think that's humanly possible.

    Especially since Gay.Com has completely crapped out when they tried to upgrade their software. I cancelled my paid membership, and might as well cancel altogether.

    How funny. I know Seth Cooper. He's way cuter in person than his cute pics even. He'd get my vote if i was able to vote.

    I wish gay.com spent more time on cleaning up fake profiles instead of stupid, junior high popularity contests such as this. icon_idea.gif

    This is how the voting went:

    #1 Andrew Roberts

    #2 Seth Cooper

    #3 ROCKY GRAZIANO

    http://www.mrgaycom.com/

    I also heard from someone that works at Gay.com they lost 80% of their customers because their new software crashed for the first week of the launch.
