I’m sorry to hear that you want to be taken off the short-list for our political weblog awards because of alleged unusual voting patterns.
The awards are, however, not meant to be taken seriously, rather they’re designed to alert our readers to the weblogs we like and enjoy.
We won’t, therefore, be agreeing to your request. It’s our contest and we’ll decide on the contestants.
Sorry to disappoint.
Err, right, you’ve only got one willing contestant left, so who is going to come second?
