Well it took more than "24hours" but they did scrub the dodgy ratings:

LastPass

NoScript

WOT (Web of Trust)
77%

Let's see if this lasts.

IMHO, it's still a bogus result.

NoScript has been the winner in previous "polls"
It's only safe to assume that NoScript would have more votes; especially a greater margin over the other Firefox only add-ons

Unless the previous polls were tampered with buy NoScript users...
I notice this year a login or email address is required; previous polls you could click "vote" daily to bump the counter. Which makes the previous polls a bit worthless as well...

If I remember correctly, we were usually leading until the very end when they suddenly received a huge amount of votes. Can't be sure why though, but looking at the events during the past few days, the poll is not that difficult to game and has been even easier in the past. One shouldn't take these too seriously.

Really, do they allow that? I'm surprised they do. This proves that about.com is a joke. And to think that it was even worse in the past!

In light of recent and past events, I think they were. . .

Yes you can vote once daily as long as you do it from the web about.com site
I just wrote again to Scott , asking to review the latest results and that was hours ago , you can see the manipulation
I don't blame Scott , but what a beautiful world we live in , cynicism has replaced many things including fairness
But well that is a fact and there nothing I can do , though is sad when I think about the next generation , what more can they lose ?
Thanks mate
