When I saw this thread,I got the same feeling and sympathize with other candidates.I don't hate very much but...um...just apt to feel neurotic and very embarrassed and think negative things.These polls are too competitive,
it's true that nobody wants to lag behind the poll even be the last one.I'm sure I can't be and don't prefer to be the top,but I hate to see I'm unpopular in the forum.I'm just a simple "give reps (back)" girl,I've never thought that becomes a competition and even see my name on the poll.
I vote for those people who give me reps,treat me nicely and tolerate my weakness.
Some guys always say hi or give me one smilie,sometimes I don't know what I should reply.But no matter what your intentions are,
I like your greetings and you get my vote as well.
