Well, last night, it didn't change from the 7 after I voted, so not trusting this poll just yet. Looking at the other contenders makes me trust it even less. Then... the votes... not too trusting of the voters so far, either :shock: . Not much of a surplus of trust tonight.

Happy Birthday to you from me, too, Marie :D ! You're right. This Forum is the best birthday gift you could have gotten... well, maybe a few exceptions to that, but not many!

Thank you Lizzy for the good wishes. I also voted for Leonard, as he is very definitely the best lyricist, no competition there. The vote also did not change.....

Yeah, I refreshed my screen and then when I returned and brought my computer back up altogether, it was STILL the same :shock: :( . Results not to be trusted... unless Leonard wins, which would confirm their having fixed the glitch... or hired an ethicist. Leonard is in a class unto itself and himself.

Just voted and rank is 5.81. He is in the top twenty though and that says something with all the people voting with their different preferences in music. I'm sure many of the people voting are doing so for their favorite group, not voting solely based on lyrics.

There is nothing apparently to stop us voting several times. Or as many many times as you feel comfortable about ;-)
I've re visited the link a few times and the score is slowly creeping up.

No guilt here Margaret, sure the people voting for the others have voted more than once, so why not. Just went back, score is now 5.85 and I voted again.

Followed your link and don't think it's us causing this problem :roll: :(

Went to bridger15's original post and followed the link she posted that was provided by b4real. It allowed me access, I voted yet again, and noted that LC's standing is at 5.99 now. Apparently fans of these other lyricists have been voting a heck of a lot more than we have. We here have to do better!

Mary,

Thank you. But it was a joke, not a serious question.
