Blarch Badness 2008: The Squirrel Bracket Final

Well, well, well. What a mess we have here. A bunch of folks who just have to muck things up for everyone. Vote spamming. Ballot box stuffing. Ballots that slip in after the buzzer.

So, I’ll tell you what. Lookout Landing, Huskies Fan, Seattle Bubble, you’re all in the semi-finals.

But here’s my first and final warning. If I even get a whiff that anything funny is going on, you’re all out of the tournament. Capiche? If one cheats, then I’ll assume that everyone is cheating.

With that said, vote early and vote often.

UPDATE: OK, what part of the above did you all not understand? I’m pulling the plug. You don’t know how disappointed I am with all of you.

And as a reminder, the other two quarterfinals are still running — West Seattle Blog vs. Kirida closes up tomorrow night, Seattle Daily Photo vs. Glitter Pissing on Wednesday night.

    Every good tournament has a Zombie round! Real estate crawls from its untimely demise to take on two ‘blogs dedicated to teams that seem ready for the grave.

    what’s the difference between voting often and ballot box stuffing?

    Yeah, if you don’t want people to vote often, you shouldn’t’ve encouraged them to.

    There’s a difference between voting more than once and voting SIX THOUSAND TIMES.

    And quoting an old Chicago political saying is encouragement? Heh.

    It’s an especially childish thing to do.

    Doesn’t seem all that fair to lump us in with the cheaters. As far as I know, Seattle Bubble has played it fair and square every round.

    LL patron here (yourfacemakesmewail, at LL.)

    We’ve stopped the stuffing. So you don’t have to worry about that.

    And LLers are the most passionate bloggers and blog readers out there, so until now it was fitting for them to have their "tactical voting" coming out all ends. I’m looking at you Corco.

    This one will be fair, we promise.

    Too late. You’re tainted. This now means nothing no matter what you say. Not your fault, but that’s the fact.
