Don't Hack the Vote.

It's been pointed out to me by one of the only people ever to actually read this blog that cheating is bad. This is true. However, it's quite clear that NASA isn't taking the poll very seriously either. If you read the Contest Rules, it becomes clear that NASA has included enough escape clauses to prevent any part of any NASA spacecraft from ever being named "Colbert," "Xenu," "Myyearbook," or anything else the public dreams up. NASA is not totally stupid, and is well aware of the legions of people who could destroy their polling system by brute force alone if necessary.

Still, I'd like to add that wonderful protection clause, in case NASA doesn't like what I've done:

THIS INFORMATION IS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Please don't actively try to ruin or tamper with the poll.

Hmm, I feel better. Cool.
