Voting and the MTV VMA Polls

MTV, the same institution that made fun of Michael, is hosting a poll on their website for the most iconic performance of the 1990’s. Being as we are, a close fan community striving to represent for Michael’s legacy, we are voting somewhat more than casually.

Recently, some Bon Jovi fans caught wind that we were doing this and informed Bon Jovi himself that he was being beat in the polls due to our strong, tireless drive to see that Michael finally gets the respect that he deserves from MTV. As both Michael and Bon  Jovi were in a close tie, Bon Jovi ordered his fans to fight so that his numbers in the poll would leave MJ in the dust. Of course, this just goes to show how desperate Bon Jovi and his fans are. However, made infamous through Twitter, in order to attempt to get ahead of Michael in the polls, JBJ fans are resorting to cheating (Can you blame them? It’s MJ. ‘Nuff said).

The following appeared in a newsletter from The 500 for MJ group:

It appears that Bon Jovi fans have utilized the following method (cheating) to “bot vote” in the VMA poll:

The following news is similar to what is showing up everywhere on Twitter:

THEY ARE ATTACKING NOW – 7;56 PM EASTERN – VERY VERY HARD. MICHAEL’S PERCENTAGE IS DECREASING FAST. CAN YOU ALERT ALL OTHER MJ COMMUNITIES? I’VE BEEN ON ALL DAY AND I KNEW THEY WOULD DO THIS SINCE THEY DID NOT LAUNCH WHEN THEY SAID THEY WOULD. IT FIGURES THEY WOULD WAIT UNTIL SATURDAY NIGHT WHEN EVERYONE GOES OUT OR DOES THINGS WITH THEIR FAMS.

We all need to keep voting. In doing so, we can hope for good publicity and advocation for Michael while we hope for justice from the upcoming trial.
