It's just that whoever voted, ONLY voted for "40" and no other song.  Looks suspicious to me.

I would suggest, then, that we discount that vote.

Seriously, it's clearly either a cheat or a troll vote.

Ah, that makes sense then- that does look pretty suspicious.

By setting up a brand new account and then voting for '40'.

I call shenanigans. Let's declare it a tie and then let the tiebreaker determine it.

While I admire your commitment to a song from Zooropa, I feel I have to rule that the vote stands.

Every member on the forum is entitled to a vote.

If people talk about the state of play of a poll in the thread, they risk letting others who haven't yet voted know what influence their vote could have on the result.  Of course we could only show the results at the end of the poll, but I think that would be a bit boring.
 
There is no proof that someone actually cheated and opened a second account in order to vote.

Shenanigans.

Someone voted for one song. That song being the subject of a fourth place tie that was being discussed actively. If it walks like a duck...

...it could quack like a legitimate vote.

If people wanna let others who haven't yet voted know there is a tie, they may then wish to use their vote to break the tie in favour of their preferred song.
