3) Votetakers Comments

A simple yes/no vote that was unusual only due to the large amount of
votes from unverifiable sources, 5 votes, (these were left in because
they did no way towards changing the result). And the people who voted
5 or six times thinking it got them multiple votes (it doesn't the
1ast vote is the one that counts - and they were all the same so it
was just a waste of their and the votetakers time and resources).

Unfortunately a result was discounted for a more serious matter and
that was because it led back to someone who had already voted under
another mail address.

That person voted from the same account as the address listed above
but with another real name and redirecting the reply to a mail address
previously only used by the originator of the mail. This second vote's
'real name' has (to my investigative reasoning) never been used on
usenet ever.

UKvoting have made the decision that only the vote from
Stephen Baird will be counted (and not the second from 'Shanna
Carrell' pointing back to Stephens old mail address of

the following votes were unverifiable


and the following blackburn%nym@alias@net was verifiable as far as a
nym account can be.
