When u want to get banned why r u using special characters ????
Keep calm in the rules it was clearly mentioned that it should be matched and you also know it wasn't matching.
Your entry was included in the list coz u didn't violet the rule of canvassing in public and before opening of the poll thread it was checked thoroughly for final list to be published and then saw that your entry doesn't qualify whatever be the reason.
Tomorrow if I win with the same error many of the user will point out that this was the fault in the entry then how his entry is taken into consideration and you would have been one of the opponent.
Enjoy the forum and prepare for the next contest as every month we are having one or other contest for all to participate and for your info in many contest admin team or alias are not allowed to participate.
There is no point opening this kind of thread and asking for self ban as in india Khudkushi is not allowed.
