3) Votetakers Comments

A simple and uneventful vote apart from the raft of votes arriving from one
machine unique in the date they were sent (all from the year 2005, and sent
within a ten minute period from the same IP address). I might have cut them
the benefit of the doubt apart from the obviously example type e-mail
addresses. If these people do use that address everyday (which I could find
no online record off) then their vote may be counted, until then it stands
as an attempt at vote massaging and they are declared Null&Void with
respect to the result.

4) Voting and Appeal guidelines

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party member of UKVoting.
UKVoting is a group of independent votetakers who count votes on CFV's in
the uk hierarchy.  The rules under which this vote is taken are posted
regularly to uk.net.news.announce or can be found at the following URL:

have restrictions on advertising, or prohibit it. Cross-posted 
adverts, where allowed, must meet the requirements of the charters 
of *all* groups involved.
