Sure, no blame for trying to ensure fair voting. But there’s definitely a barrier now (for this community, anyway), having to jump through the social media hoop, and that will impact the counts. Is impacting the votes.

My real problem isn’t with using Google+ or Twitter or whatever other account I already have, but having to use Listly to use them. It’s basically giving yet another third-party tool access to my information for this one-time thing.

Oh, and I clicked the crap out of the ‘thumbs up’ button at first because I didn’t know what the heck I was supposed to to. I probably dropped it five votes before adding one back. ;)

You can revoke access for Listy from your Twitter account app settings – I’ve done just that. I found some other apps I’d forgot about giving access to as well (LinkedIn?! – deleted my account years ago) so it’s a good thing to do from time to time.

If that means my vote isn’t counted, then I’m not too bothered – looks like Liferay people have spammed all the lists anyway. Textpattern is never going to win in a raw popularity poll, and it doesn’t need to.
