Tsk tsk.

I'll be fair and say that it *may* be Major Nelson behind those accounts.

Do you think a company bothers to do that? Or some rabid fanboy?

Polls on the internet are serious business.

Rabid fanboy.

While we cannot confirm who is behind the onslaught of sudden bot-voting in Microsoft’s favor in the “battle of PS4 vs Xbox One,” whoever is responsible for this is committing one of the utterly saddest acts of delusion. Regardless of it being for money or for fun in their spare time, the fact that somebody spent a lot of time to create multiple email addresses required to create multiple Twitter accounts in order to spam a GameSpot contest that has been mostly inactive and forgotten is really disheartening.

Just funny to see a butthurt fan actually do this.

Much more likely an independent contractor hired by Microsoft.
