You sound like you're butthurt because I badrepped you. I just think that increasing the voting time would improve the competition as everyone would get a chance to vote. I don't see the problem with that?
A bad rep from you means I'm doing exactly the right things!
You have piss poor empathetic skills, then. Bless you.
In answer to your second point, if the voting and contest lasted longer, there would be more chance of trouble erupting. We've had enough drama as it is, I think. There's no need to milk this thing too much.
