    i just got an email from someone on the site that reads,

    "please vote for my boyfriend (bf's username here) for Motd. tommorrow is our anniversary and i want to surprise him with a win."

    i think that's weird. shouldn't you do something more meaningful for your annniversary, or is this what love has become in the internet age?

    Is it from someone you know or a stranger?

    this is a good point. How do you know that this is the only thing he was planning?
    Also, due to circumstances of the distance between them, maybe this is one of the only ways he can surprise him? maybe he was trying to be spontaneous within the space that he has?
    Maybe the guy had been MotD before and wanted his boyfriend to experience the acceptance and warm comments of other members like he had?

    I think everyone has there own ideas and criteria as to why they would vote for someone as MotD and so i get why you wouldnt if you didnt know them because i wouldnt either, but its the thought that counts as to why hes branching out to people right?

    Just a few points to put out there icon_smile.gif.

    Stranger still was the young man who repeatedly messaged me begging me to vote for him for Man of the Day. Didn't even know the kid...

    When I asked him why he was so desperate he said that he was just incredibly competitive.

    Very weird encounter...

    If he asked you to vote for someone that you have hotlisted or buddylisted then it's more personal and you should do them a favor by voting. It's like targetting myspace users who like Lady Ga Ga with something promoting Lady Ga Ga. It makes total sense to me.

    However, if this person messaged you randomly (i.e. spam) then it's really annoying and you should just flame them for sending you spam.

    I suppose it's cheaper then a house or a ring...

    I find the whole email blasting MOTD campaigning just odd overall!

    Borderline retarded!
