Just a question that always comes to my mind when seeing things like this – Shpookle, are you in any way associated with Tori? She registered and for her first and only posting started this thread, making it appear that she was in no way associated with the contest or website. Then two days later, Shplookle registers here and for their first and only message starts defending the contest.
We (moderators and members alike) see a LOT of what is known as astroturfing, and while I cannot speak for anyone besides myself, I feel it drains legitimacy from the post. Yes, the contest may be legit but we see this type of post all the time and for anyone to not be up front about promotion (which I have no problem with as long as you’re honest about it) really raises hackles.
