I don't think anywhere that I said the results were totally disregarded.
If anyone will take the time to look at the rules and guidelines for which we started The Daytime Top 20 we set it up not as a fave poll but as a Best of Poll. That is the reason we give people threads to point out who they feel was the best that week and pimp them.
We do not at the same time stop people from voting for who they want. That is their perogative. There are some sites that set up the Best of Polls and if a person wasn't on that week they will not allow them to be voted for. We do not do that. You vote for whoever you please to vote for. But the Top 20 is not just a favorite show or favorite performer poll.
We are not naive enough to know that the fan bases will still not try to fix the results. It happens with any magazine poll or online poll these days. We just try to stress the fact that our poll is designed to be different. We have lofty expectations that people will vote who is the best that week and not who is just their favorite.
I applaud Mary who admitted to not voting for Days 2 weeks ago as she said even though it is her favorite it didn't deserve the vote.
Frankly the week that EJ/Sami won I didn't have that much of a problem with it as that week EJ/Sami had some great scenes and were very good. There have been other weeks when they are Days top duo in the poll and other performers have blown them away.
So no the results are not totally disregarded but as someone else pointed out a few weeks ago when people or shows win consistently every week no matter what then it makes it hard to appreciate the weeks they really deserve to be at the top.
And one last comment, fan bases feel like they are helping their performer but they are actually not. And they are not helping their show either. When fan bases consistently put their performer at the top at the expense of others who deserve the limelight at times, they only harbor resentment for that couple or actor among others. The saddest thing is that many times yes they rob another show from getting the spotlight but it also robs others from the same show to shine when they deserve too.
When SON had their top 10 Michael Easton and Alicia Minshew and Renee Elise Goldsberry stayed at the top so often and consistently that they became hated, no one appreciated them anymore, and many of their own castmates never got the recognition they deserved.
