You know, I gots to admit, I'll a little surprised to see such variance in the voting this time around from the first. OK, the results might be skewed in the early going a bit due to so many people just voting in polls rather than making their views public by actually posting them (what's with that, BTW? It ain't that hard to quickly type a number and hit the Submit Reply button ).

Still, it is noteworthy. In each of the four rounds so far, there has been a different winner. In fact, in three of them, the winner didn't even crack the Top Three previously.

Here are the results from the previous version of the contest:

1-10: 1) 7 2) 3 3) 4
11-20: 1) 20 2) 14 3) 12
21-30: 1) 28 2) 25 3) 30
31-40: 1) 40 2) 37 3) 31

Now here are the results of the current contest:

1-10: 1) 4 2) 7 3) 10
11-20: 1) 13 2) 16 3) 20
21-30: 1) 24 2) 22 3) 25
31-40: 1) 38 2) 37 3) 40

Furthermore, in two out of four cases, two of the top three are different. And in one case, the last winner failed to chart at all.

Different make up of the board? Small Sample Size shenanigans? Changing tastes? Dunno. But I find it interesting nonetheless.

Mind, I expect the losing streak to be broken after this week. I've been wrong before though, so who knows?
