ticalc.org has got to watch for that kind of stuff. If something is in 2<sup>nd</sup> place, and people vote it lower than a 7, isn't that kind of suspicious?
No, that person may have a genuine problem with it, like he/she experienced a rare bug that caused a RAM clear - I'd be pretty pissed about that if I was that person, and I certainly wouldn't give it a good rating.

I believe that ticalc.org gives more weight to the people with older accounts, so that somebody can't just create lots of duplicate accounts to manipulate the program rankings (like what some of you are doing with Grayscale Minesweeper and MirageOS).
I'd hope that the people at Detached Solutions are above such petty squabbles over ranking.
Honestly, I don't think this was meant as some form of sabotage (at least in a large scale). I expect some users had real problems with it, but it's still very impressive that it got saw the level of popularity that it did. Do you think it would have gotten as high as it did if none of the people here had voted for it?
I don't even think Dan Englender and Jason Kovacs have heard of Grayscale Minesweeper, considering they have both basically moved on from the TI community (Dan Englender occasionally contributes to WikiTI, but that's about it).
