"You don't have to bother reading my post - just vote for me!"
"In LJ Idol, the terrorists do win if you don't vote for me!"
All kidding aside.
They've done a good job trying to level the playing field. For now all of the contestants have been put into "tribes" based on the size of their F-List, so the people with the biggest lists don't crowd out the little guys.
I joke above, but read my post and read others.
And just because I have a large.....um...friend's list, doesn't guarantee me a ticket to the next round. And that's the way it should be in a writing contest, with a few twists.
Go read and vote. for me!
