As clearly stated on the contest terms, the entire Poetry.com team got a total of 5 points to spread among nominees. With 100+ contenders on our average contest in the last 7 months, that accounts to less than 5% of the votes.

On a different note, while we would like to keep the platform friendly for everyone, we do welcome criticism and improvement suggestions. Having said that, calling our staff liars and spreading negatively all around might be too much...

I hope this message is clear as well.
