Maybe the organizers were inept in not making some restiction to disregard silly or undignified names.
On line polls (ask the public! Roll eyes) seem to me a bit like referendums, and if the public's thoughts are of similar stupidity in June, Lord help us!
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
