How could be explained more than 400 votes in only a few minutesJust 3 hours ago, there was about 500 votes made in june and july, so 400 new votes in a few minutes seem to be very strange ....and NLMSX seems to be the 'winner' now ....

Apparently the current poll gets to the emotions of some people.
