I lost the election, rather badly

Oh well.

As it happens, I was tied for the fewest first choice votes received, and eliminated in the first round of counting. The process went all the way down to two candidates before the winner, legomymalfoy, was chosen.

I've heard noises about ballot box stuffing, and there was a death threat reported against at least one candidate (which one has not been reported, as far as I knowlegomymalfoy, again, as reported here, and jameth, as reported here). It really doesn't make that much difference to me; it's obvious that, regardless of other factors, I wasn't going to be elected anyway.

I do note that one candidate, jameth, seemed like a real troll. Whether he is or not, the winner is not, and I'm happy that the kind of followers jameth seems to attract weren't rewarded.

It remains to be seen whether this whole exercise will have any effect on LJ or not. I hope it does, obviously, or else I wouldn't have thrown my helmet into the ring.
