Default Question about contest ethics

Sponsored Links
If you ever found a glitch in a contest software, did you exploit it or notify the techs? Sound off. This could get interesting and I'll chime in more later.

Please don't remove this post from the locker. I'd like for us to speak freely here.

When I won the $2900 + in Shell gas almost 2 years ago, I had discovered that the winning times were exactly 23 minutes apart even though Shell had advertised a winner every 29 minutes. It's not cheating as long as you follow the rules. I quit playing the day I won the grand prize.

As long as you follow the rules I don't see a problem if you find out a pattern and use it to win. JMO

Oh Okay, I see your point a very good one. I was referring to deals noticing it was every 23 minutes. I say good work on his part. I agree with you on your point Tat You don't want to DQ yourself if trying to enter more than allowed.
