I almost hate to post this as there are so many contrary people here that may actually end up voting for someone else, and Queen is really needing some HELP, but I did discover, hehe,  that every time you refresh the page you can vote again.....

So you think this will finally earn Queen a Grammy?

The Spice Girls and Muse are blowing Queen away....  As they should be.

Just looking for some support of Queen at Queenzone, if that's too much to ask then don't bother. Yes I know queen is waaay behind.

have you EVER stopped and thought why your post might generate negative repsonses of one type or another?

i can think of several reasons:

1. attempting to pressgang people into voting for something always provokes an opposition
2. why do YOU feel queen need any help? they don't
3. what you're promoting is incredibly stepford-like, esp when you consider my final point
4. encouraging people to "cheat" a poll by refreshing the page obliterates any integrity the poll might have
5. why wouldn't you just tell people there's a poll for people to vote who THEY think was best...rather than who YOU wish coulda been good enough to have actuall been best
6. queen were nOT anywhere near the best on the night

If I voted "Queen and Jessie J" I'd be lying.

You have to ask? Just read nearly any thread here.

i can think of several reasons:

1. attempting to pressgang people into voting for something always provokes an opposition
Not in other groups supportive of a person or cause that I have been a part of.

2. why do YOU feel queen need any help? they don't
Considering I had not seen this poll posted anywhere except when Chiara posted it on FB, I thought to spread the word around.

3. what you're promoting is incredibly stepford-like, esp when you consider my final point
Says you.

4. encouraging people to "cheat" a poll by refreshing the page obliterates any integrity the poll might have
I know, but assume those voting for others there also discovered that. Can't help it if those who set up the poll didn't make it so that wasn't possible.

5. why wouldn't you just tell people there's a poll for people to vote who THEY think was best...rather than who YOU wish coulda been good enough to have actuall been best
I don't know why I might expect people at a place called Queenzone to be interested in voting for Queen. Silly me, what WAS I thinking? I thought the whole show was chaotic, with Queen being the high point. I know a lot of people who agree - apparently they aren't here.

6. queen were nOT anywhere near the best on the night
Again, says you.

If it was a poll for worst of the night those groups would blow the Queen performance away. Muse were utter gash. And I generally like Muse.

Can you list those people's names here?  I don't believe that you can.

Because:

1.  I don't think there are a lot of people that agree with you.  So far NONE have voted and NONE are on Queenzone.  These are Queen fans, right?  And since they are your friends, you've obviously told them about Queenzone.

2.  I don't think you have a lot of friends who vote on mindless waste-of-time polls

3.  I think you're making the whole "lot of people" up, so you can tell everybody here that you helped Queen win, thus garnering the praises of long-standing Queenzoners.

4.  You're scared that Brenski will track them down and find out the real truth.

5.  You're really one of the Spice Girls and you want the Muse voters to vote for Queen, ensuring your victory.

Mr Oven,
Good god! I had hoped there were at least SOME here. There are quite a few on facebook at Save Me. You seem to have time on your hands with which to harrass me, so track them down if that will make you happy! Facebook is great for eating up time. :oP

where do is start? this'll be fun...here goes.
(so in answer to each of your replies:)

1. and what the f*ck happened to objectivity and honesty? surely you don't blindly endorse everything queen do as fucking perfect? or are you just proving my later point about stepfordism?

2. fair point, maybe...until we get to 3, 4 & 5

3. see point 1

4. you can't everyone is a devious cheating snidey f**ker like yourself....and secondly, you encouraged people on qzone to cheat...read your original post, and next time aswer my comment, and not what you think you want to answer

5. no. people have intelligent minds and musical ears..they'll vote for what was best...queen were not..so why try to indoctrinate people to your preferred voting ?

6. not says just me...i have to say, you have no real feel or depth of feeling for reality..i'm a queen fan of 38 years...and that performance was pretty piss-poor...esp when you consider it was only 5 mins...would thought they could fucking well get it right for five mins...JJ was actually the best part of their perfromace....and btw - the who blew queen away....by fucking light years

I would expect that answer from a Spice Girl.

So what would I find at Save Me besides tree-huggers?  

"Who would you workout to, Springsteen or Queen?"
"Greatest Guitarist of All Time G Harrison vs B May?"
"Such a great Olympics with such spirit and hope."

This is YOUR facebook page, isn't it?

BWAAAAHAAAAHAAAAHAAA! I LOATHE Springsteen! The man always looks like he's trying too hard. And I don't work unless I'm getting something accomplished. Running in place is for gerbils!

I also loathe sports - didn't think the damn olympics would EVER end!

No kidding.

Why would you "work out" to Queen or Springsteen anyways? Most of their fans are heart patients by now anyways.

You wanna get ripped? Bieber. Non Stop.
