    Would suggest posting a ranking system with number of votes, and add better categories and metrics, i.e., social justice, foot print- carbon, pollution, etc.

    It said I could vote online through email. I tried, got registered in an account, but then got 2 contradictory messages: (1) your activation has expired (1 minute later) and (2) that email already has an account; reset your password.? This is NOT WORTH CHASING AROUND>
