Perusing the AI boards, it seems that a LOT of people were p.o'ed about the pimping. Several people who said they normally don't vote ended up voting for DC - just because of Simon's remark about the "Knockout".

One person said he got in about 5000 votes for DC using two cell phones and text messaging. Another claimed over 2500 votes; several said they voted over 500 times. I sure hope they have a flat rate plan for messaging... wink
