The livejournal elections are getting silly, and we seem to have our first conspiracy theory.

Since I suspect my comment will be lost in the crowd, I'm repeating it here:

Reading this, I really have to ask how credible this story is. Players with several thousand livejournal accounts and email addresses, all via different ISPs etc? Who the hell has the time to do something like that, or the organizational skills to keep track, and WTF would they bother since this would have all had to have been set up months ago? If they're doing this, and actively monitoring so many accounts for their RPGs, how do they find time to eat, or go to the bathroom?

I have no doubt that there will be a few multiple votes - I also have no doubt that they will be spread fairly evenly amongst the candidates. But something on this scale is a fairy tale, made up by someone who knows that most people won't bother to do the math and realise just how stupid the idea is. Falling for it does you no credit.
