Actually, a lot of people could put more effort into helping vote off Sanjaya. For instance, I don't vote and there are many out there like me that simply watch the show and never pick up the phone.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 6, 2007
Members of idolme.com, a popular online American Idol message board has decided to take a stand and take back American Idol! They are now focusing all their efforts on what they are calling Vote for the Rest. Vote for the Rest is an effort to vote Sanjaya Malakar off the show. The idea is that every idolme.com supporter/member votes for everyone but Sanjaya. Each idolme.com supporter/member votes for each contestant an equal number of times, except Sanjaya.
"The show is not serious this year, people like Howard Stern and VFTW are making a mockery of an honest singing competition. Last week alone we received hundreds of emails complaining about Stern and VFTW and our members want to take a stand, they want the worse singer gone!" explains Stuart C. McHenry, President of Site Sift Media, Inc. which owns idolme.com.
Sadie, an idolme.com member sums up why the plan can work, "Actually, a lot of people could put more effort into helping vote off Sanjaya. For instance, I don't vote and there are many out there like me that simply watch the show and never pick up the phone."
No ill intent is meant for Malakar, but the site wants to make it clear that outside forces such as VFTW and Howard Stern are not going to be allowed to interfere with everyone's favorite show without a fight.
Idolme.com has a member base of over 7,000 and a readership that stretches over 115,000 each week.
