Here's the email I sent to Heather Snyder, Cotton's IP Coordinator, confirming our telephone conversation about this issue on February 13 in which she had promised to provide information via email that would help to explain (or somehow demonstrate) the robotic cheating that cost me the competition. She said she would email me and that we would be able to discuss the email thereafter.
So far. Nothing. I bet that if I try to call her, she'll be "out of the office" or "in a meeting."
I'll let you know if I ever hear from Cotton and what I am able to find out. If you don't see another post about this, you should assume that I've been stonewalled, ignored and provided with ZERO proof of alleged cheating. Disqualification of a contestant that successfully passed two full, grueling elimination rounds on suspicion of fraud is VERY serious. Tampering with the voting process is a prosecutable offense! Cotton doesn't seem to be taking this seriously. They just want to sweep it under the rug.
