So where do you draw the subjective line?  If my ~400 entries aren't acceptable, are David Jones' ~100 entries (presumably all entered manually) in the last 30 minutes ok? If not, how about Fabio's ~70 entries, or the numerous other people who submitted around 30 entries each during the final push?  As I said in my last message, Markus won the contest a year ago with ~40 randomly selected entries in the last 30 minutes.
