    Hi guys, after reading some posts on here about tacoma resetting the cookies etc.. I went to there site, and checked out the posts. I did a search with the word "vote" and came across about 50 posts, asking how to etc.... well low and behold, someone typed a post that said

    NO DONT DO THAT WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN WARNED WE CAN BE DISQUALIFIED

    so after seeing, that I decided to send an email to top 4x4 from the link on the FAQ page, to just shed some light on the subject. I copied and pasted 8 posts, with the dates times etc... even the ones where some how they came up with 100 votes in about 1 hour-- and had them time stamped etc.. with the vote count etc.. anyhow here's a copy of my email, without the copied in posts

    Okay, the time has come--
    here's cut and pasted text from tacoma territorys website on how to increase the votes-- there was TONS of them, just by doing a search under the word "vote"... I think its about time they get removed from the voting, there are enough sites that have honest people ! In one of the messages, it said they have already been warned for cheating- obviously the warning ment nothing to them...

    HOPEFULLY someone will read it and check it out for themselves, and maybe we can go back to being a bunch of honest 4x4 sites on a contest!!! Just thought I'd tell you all-

    BTW---- go vote!

    If they contact you, ask them (4x4 site) if the large difference between out and in is an indication of cheating. Seems like all the other sites have numbers like ours - something wacky going on in Taco land!

    Thanks for the effort.

    You should have also included in the email about how they come in here posing as a K5 driver and do a link for Vote yet it is to vote for their site and not ours.

    now i hate to be a spoiled sport but, how important is this top 4X4 thing? does steve get money or some sort of benefit from it? Plus why would someone go to the extence of cheating at it? Im just wondering, and yes i do vote, but does it make a difference if we're number 1 or 2 especially when the number one site is a toyota site. sorry im just ranting.
