I’m linking to Crankynick’s post without much comment because he has said it all far better than I’d ever have the balls to do. But what I would like to add is this. As someone who did not lobby for or solicit Ditmar nominations or votes, I was extremely disappointed by the folks who claimed the outcome of the awards was somehow rigged.
Not sure of the exact stats, but somewhere in the vicinity of 50 people apparently voted in this years Ditmars. Twelve votes would probably be enough to secure a win. If such a small number of people aren’t voting for your stuff, perhaps… you fill in the blanks.
