Not me. But it happened.
A mass of emails flooded the ballot box. All selecting the same products. All coming from either the domain of a very large producer of alcohol or from the domain of a small marketing firm – that does work for a large producer of alcohol.
Now, while I can believe that all these folks read The Scotch Blog, it was interesting that none of these emails came to the address provided in the story. They ALL were sent to the same, but wrong email address.
I’m guessing this was the result of some memo that went out – these guys didn’t even have the courtesy to come to the site to commit the voting fraud!
Here are are my "Voting for Dummies" tips (with handy analogies):
- When you want to cheat on a test – don’t all fill out the same answers
- (Mix your submissions up a little)
- When you want to rob a bank, don’t wear a name tag.
- (Next time use personal emails and not your corporate ones)
- When you all want to forge a check, change the name on the check once in a while.
- (Don’t all submit from the same memo)
- Most importantly, hire an inside man.
- If you really want to rig the contest, then try to bribe me – it has a better chance of working.
Nice try, but if this happens again, all of your nominees will be removed from consideration.
