If you venture over to the Microbes on Parade New Blog Showcase Week 3, you will see that “idols of the marketplace” is running away with the race, with 16 links to a story called: “A Mapquest for Peace”. A little extra look around reveals that the author did not submit the permalink to the story, rather the submitted that link to the main blog page. The 16 votes are the 16 people who have blogrolled the site. The actual post has exactly 0 links. Probably dimwittery rather than cheating. NZ Bear has been notified.
