Hey guys I know I already blogged about this a lot last night but if you could just bear with me a second—
As you can see, a campaign in retaliation to the voters who rallied behind Rose Muniam has resulted in Adam’s numbers shooting up overnight. He’s pretty much constantly been gaining.
Apparently, someone did the math on this and it looks like his votes have been going up by almost exactly 200 every few minutes. As they pointed out, smells like a bot. Some guy is sitting there using a bot to cheat at this contest because he just couldn’t handle a bunch of people trying to support letting a harassed woman have an opportunity to become an astronaut.
I’m making my own post about this because I think a lot of people voted for Rose for a bit and then stopped because she was so far in the lead that it seemed she would win, and perhaps seeing it again in some tags might help.
I know I already said this, but this isn’t just about the contestants any more. This is about some people who are literally doing this to try to put women back in their place. This is about how, if Rose loses, there will be people who say, “serves those feminazis right for trying to cheat. women don’t belong in a space program.”
I know I don’t have a ton of followers or anything that would make a big difference in this, but as of right now, Adam’s going to overtake Rose in a few hours, and the injustice of this really bothers me. If it bothers you too, please consider signal boosting this, complaining about bot tactics to AXE, or voting for Rose. Anything you can do to help.
You can vote every hour here, and the contest ends Tuesday.
