Mark, I wouldnt worry too much about it... these contests have nothing really to do with talent, it is more to do with how many people like you vs how many people hate you. I don't like popularity contests - losing is so much more personal and heartbreaking, I would rather not participate at all.
In my instance, more people dislike me to such an extent that they would actually put themselves out to vote against me. On the other hand, there are an awful lot of people who adore me.
Like me, you are one of those people that inspire a reaction of extremes.
Sueing? Well, it certainly would be a first!
