I'm entering a contest and voting for myself. It's on like the verizon site. Do you think they'd notice my IP address voting with 100 accounts and DQ me?

Also my mac gets really slow for like 1 minute at a time every 10 minutes. My friend told me to let my mac crash and it'll stop but my mac hasn't crashed yet. How do I fix it?

People ask the weirdest questions what's up with that.

I called Verizon and told on you. They said they have already DQ you...

Don't you think that this is dishonest? Does this really seem fair? If you do this and you get caught, they have every right to DQ you and they should. As for your second question, what are you running and what are your Mac's specs?

Yes they really do. It seems that questions regarding illegal or devious activities seem to be common place these days.

that is the sad thing about this species ........ Its just human nature to always try out do the next or get something for nothing.... Cheat, steal or lie... Sad but it will never change.

We, in the pig picture of things, are not really nice people...
Dont get me wrong there is still nice people around though ....
