A good ballot, all but one voter managed to keep the %%BALLOT symbol
which I nicked off another votetaker and the vast majority of ballots
were reasonably unmangled. There was a slight problem with acknowledgements
where there was no Subject: header - but I managed to persuade the author
of the software to alter it for me (he lives in the same house :-)).
Most of the invalids have been seen before, there was a surprisingly high
number of spamblocks and I will repeat once again - I will not piddle about
removing them. If you spamblock your mail and send a ballot then it will
not get counted. Now for this times new feature :-)
The References: header indicates that the ballot has been discarded as
the References header does not match a CFV message, or a message sent
by the votetaker. Unfortunately, many mailers don't use this rather
nice feature. *sigh*
 Just mailing a message, "I vote for this" is not valid.
