Well, I did notify the techs yesterday and asked them to remove all the points. We found a glitch where you received activity points. The person with the most points monthly wins. We'd been wondering how the previous winners were getting their points so incredibly high, and now I think we know.

Entering something based on certain times I don't feel is exploitation. Shoot, anybody need some mike & Ike's? Luckylookout? Allure?

But I was able to just rapidly get astronomical points. Then the guilt set in. I wrote the website and am waiting for them to do something. No matter what, I'm not going to pursue this any further. They can keep giving their prizes to the same folks. However, if they don't remedy it, or give me some kind of response, we'll start seeing your names on it.

I did just go back through all of their rules for the contests. There is nothing stated that would note DQ. I just know that it's wrong.

thats why she is one of my closest friends deals..she has scruples as I do unlike some people we dont have to mention.
Figuring out the system is one thing..blatant cheating due to a obvious glitch is another. Thats why I didn't touch it though I knew about it.

They listened! Of course, when you point out a flaw in someone's system that basically allows stealing, well... You have to put a stop to it. I think some of you might figure out the site within the next 48 hours.

Good job Eva! Maybe they'll send you something for being honest and telling them about this.

Just not having my stomach in knots is all I need.

When we were looking through the posts, many people had made comments asking how in the WORLD you could get your points that high. It's just impossible.

Tat, you'd look so purty in that top!
