    Apparently Kat is being considered for the role as Wonder Woman in the upcoming film.

    I'm wondering why her single CD has gone from #25 to #69 on the Amazon top selling music list.

    Yes, it's fine, but next time you're not sure, how about asking a mod in advance? That saves a lot of trouble for everyone.

    The Grassy Knoll, Roswell, Bill Gates is sending you a check... there are lots of things people talk about. Talking about them doesn't make them true.

    votes didn't have a whole lot to do with winners and losers on this show
    More importantly, no matter what conspiracy theories one subscribes to, the FACT remains, the votes are what determine the outcome of AI.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I was also intrigued with the rigging of votes last year since it was my first time watching AI. My conclusion after reading the many posts and blogs is that their favorites didn’t win and hence the rigging theory.
    Well, my favorite last year was Carrie and this year is Kat. But I still don’t think the votes are rigged.

    Leo, I know you believe in the voting system, but I'd have to say that Reality TV in general is filled with all kinds of chicanery in the forms of positioning, special editing, selective disclosures, contestant selections and the like. After all, in television, "reality" is truly ambiguous.

    As for the votes, well, like it has been stated many times on the boards, the whole bandwidth limitations/network saturation keeps the contest closer than it probably would be. As a result, not all of the votes (and revotes) are getting through. What's with the ability to vote over and over hundreds of times anyway?

    Sigh - anyway, we can debate about this topic over and over and it won't change the past results - Taylor (YES!) is the winner and based on his overwhelming popularity outside of the AI stats, he was the one the majority of people wanted. My favorite won, so that's all I care about when it comes to AI.

    What many of us are referring to is the fact that we often could not get one vote in due to all lines being busy. How can one person win, with all busy lines, and another person lose? This will probably always be in question until something is done about the busy signals. Either they will need to cut down on the number of times anyone can vote, or they need to add enough lines that one wouldn't get busy signals for two, or four hours.

    I don't doubt that either. There is a lot of "pimping", over-promotion, etcetra that goes on. TPTB would definitely prefer to have things go one way or another (see: Chris.) However, the voting process is (within reason) clean.
