Not everyone bolded the name that they wanted. If we were to take such a strict interpretation of the rules, which with all due respect didn't go through a vigorous drafting process, a lot of the votes wouldn't count.

Surely it is the intention of the voter that should have the final say, not so much the form of the vote (ceteris paribus of course).

So if they all are counted, then

Final results:

(1) Clashcityrocker vs (4) leng jai 35-34
Machado & Gil vs (2) EnriqueIG8 17-36


So no matter.

Never ever give up

His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.

Re: Mr MTF 2011 - SF - voting from 6pm (GMT) to 5 pm (GMT)

Fortunately Clashcityrocker won and no French or Brit had a deciding factor.

But yes, it's true that in the past people used to show up with "no vote" or replaced one of the contestants with "Nole Spam" or "2003" and bolding it, making it their lone vote (leng jai in ACC for example), then coming back with a full set of votes, always has been counted. Had no clue this was not obvious and could have created controversy. Good that the match finished with a clear win. Don't do it in the final please.

And yes, in this Mr. MTF there have also been problematic sets of votes that were counted to not make it more difficult/strict for voters, and rather to attract them to stay with us. But of course no one noticed because they happened in less significant matches.

Thanks everyone for voting for me and voting for Fabio (Machado & Gil) as well!
Can't believe I almost won by +20 votes, it's a little against the reality but okay.

And big kudos to Adrian and Fabio, they would have also been the perfect finalists. So tough this contest.
