Yeah, it would be reduced to a childish bully game.

In my other online lives, I always heard them called "sock puppets."

It's so much more fun than "alters."

There's no way that different people could have legitimately voted for the latter in such a short time frame before the round was closed. Using alters to skew polls is just dumb and completely defeats the purpose of creating a poll.
I completely agree.

Come on folks, WYWY was going to be voted off eventually. There's no way that it is the best song on Sgt. Pepper's.

Save all your alter tricks for A Day In The Life.
Jay Kay!

Seriously! There's absolutely no way WYWY is the best song on the album. It would have made no difference if it had have been voted off last round. If songs like A Day In The Life, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds or With A Little Help From My Friends get voted off before Within You Without You because of someone with his panties in a bunch, I'm boycotting the rest of the competition.

All this talk of alters (sock puppets) being used to vote for a particular song is pure speculation...

Why would one use one at all, especially at such an early stage in the SGT PEPPERS vote? Why save WYWY when it's obviously going to be eliminated soon anyway. It's not as if it ever stood a chance of winning.

Mind you, if they ARE being used, it's a kind of depressing thought..

Yeah.

I like seeing the better songs stay longer, which is why I'm voting off Fixing a Hole before Within You Without You. but want to see A Day in the Life and Lucy in the Sky... stay 'til the end.

I'd be a coward if I didn't confess.

I will say this: I do not intend on doing this as a regular thing. It is not my wish to skew the results of the competition in any kind of way that would actually alter the end results of either this draw or of the competition as a whole. My reasoning for doing it this past round is not about playing favorites. There have been PLENTY of occasions already in the competition where songs have been eliminated when I felt they shouldn't have been, but I never messed with anything. This was more about several people who said things along the lines of 'I might as well vote for WYWY because it's getting creamed' or 'I guess I'll just add one more vote For WYWY'. Yeah, the people that voted for WYWY and actually said, 'I voted it off because I don't think it's as good as the others' outnumbered those who said 'I might as well vote for WYWY', but that doesn't change the fact that the 'I might as well' people represented to me a certain complacency, a lack of thinking with one's own mind.

If you're just going to vote for whatever is getting the most votes already, what's the point? I don't like that method of deciding a vote, I feel it takes away from the competition, and I wanted to make that point loud and clear. So yes, I used alters to give When I'm Sixty-Four the win. Yes, I am aware of the irony that I used one result-marring tactic to voice my displeasure over another result-marring tactic. However, this was a one round thing. I absolutely do not intend on continuing to do this, as I certainly don't want to skew the results of my own survivor. I'm not running the thing to get marred results. I did this in one round, and I got rid of a song that probably would've been the next to go anyway. That's my story. At least I'm owning up to it and offering an explanation.

The moral: Vote for whatever you think is the worst song left. Don't just vote for whatever looks like it's going to win. That's what upset me.

Thanks for owning up to it, but that's pretty lame.

Maybe someone who said "I might as well vote for this" meant that they like all the songs on the album, so it might as well be that one.

The moral is that you cheated us out of a competition. It isn't your decision to decide what is fair and what isn't.
If people wanted to vote off WYWY, then that was their choice, plain and simple. Now you've ruined your credibility here and the entire contest will feel rigged by anyone who has the idea of creating alters to save whatever they want to save.

I wanted Tomorrow Never Knows to WIN, not just to survive a couple more rounds, and I didn't even use my one alter to help it along.

I haven't ruined any credibility because I'm not doing it again. You think I would continue to screw up my own competition? Why would I take the time to run the competition if I was just gonna screw it up? This was a one-time thing. Period. You or anyone else catches me doing it again, I'll end the competition. I swear.

And I don't know what Tomorrow Never Knows has to do with it. It got legitimately voted off. I voted one time in favor of TNN in the final of the Revolver draw and it still got eliminated. It sucked, but that's the way the votes came out. That has nothing to do with this draw.

Fixing A Hole has 4 votes? WTF?

And A Day In The Life has NONE? Now I have nothing to murmur about.

It's not so much that you did it, I mean if you had done it to be silly or stupid, or whatever, I mean we all do stupid shit on the internet.

But you did it to teach us a lesson, which is just
