Some things in Whyville we just can't stop. Expiring face
parts, harassment toward newbies, and scamming for example. But there
is a new, big issue that has recently come up.
I had an article published a week or two ago, "Do You Have a
RIGHT to Vote?", which brought up the issue of people voting for
someone because they look 'hot'. I'm glad to say that the City Workers
have put into effect a rule that you can't vote unless you've been
registered in Whyville for four weeks. This, I believe, will prevent
the creation of multiple accounts just to sign platforms.
Yet, people have dozens of user names already and vote for
their own petitions, inflating their numbers and making them look more
popular than they could possibly be. This next part may get people
angry, but we have to fix the problem. I don't mean to pick on just one
person -- I'm sure there are others doing this as well.
I know the sky is blue, the grass is green, and people are cheating in
this election. They can write all the articles and hate mail they want,
but this must be exposed!
