Maybe this will help a bit.

8-year-old Josh Bowman of Niagara Falls believes he is the world's biggest AC/DC fan. And to prove it, he entered an online contest sponsored by Bell/MSN Sympatico to be named the Ultimate AC/DC Fan. The prize in the contest is hotel accomodation, VIA Rail transportation and tickets to every AC/DC show on the upcoming Canadian leg of the band's tour, as well as great seats in the photographer's pit, a full CD catalogue of the band, and certain other merchandise. Voting began on July 8th, and within a few days, Josh's contest entry had a conmrotable 20 percent lead in votes over the two other finalists. But someone at Bell decided to "reset" the computer, and the vote-counting started over from zero. Now, with voting scheduled to end on Sunday, Josh is now 18 points behind fellow finalist Dale Cutler. When asked for a reaction to the allegations that Josh had been ripped off of thousands of votes, a Bell spokesperson said "on the positive side, it's a great contest and the prize is fantastic, it's a great prize and we certainly want to congratulate the contestants. They've done a great job producing the videos".
