Time vs 4chan

They never had a shot. Time announces the result of their most influential person poll and not surprisingly, moot from 4chan (follow at your own risk) is the big winner. The magazine claims no funny business with the poll ("Moot denies knowing about any concerted plan by his followers to influence the poll, though TIME.com's technical team did detect and extinguish several attempts to hack the vote.") though the winners spell out "marblecake also the game" and much has been written about anonymous folks gaming the system. Sometimes I just love the internet.
