    Or maybe it tells you something about the anti-Zoro cult? Making a new account and voting for Zoro in order to make the fanbase look bad seems like a better plan than making a new account and voting for Zoro in hopes that no-one would notice, don't you think? Pretending to represent the opposite faction is a basic strategy in online warfare nowadays after all.

    I checked the poll a couple of times and even PM'd them to the host

    Whitebeard had only one account that didn't make the before April 8th restriction, while Zoro had 3 which ultimately made Whitebeard win 45-43 (from 46-46)

    On the other hand,

    Whitebeard had no 0 post, old joindate dupes
    1 account with 14 posts only

    while Zoro had:
    2 accounts under 25 posts
    4 accounts with 0 or 1 post

    If all accounts which were very likely to be dupes taken out of the poll it would have been 44-37 for Whitebeard

    You're going too far.....

    Next step : Zoro haters are financed by the reptilians.

    Too far? Just think about it. What reason could someone have for dupe-voting for Zoro? It's obviously not going to help him win, and it will make the fanbase look bad. I'm not saying anything is certain, but there is a very real possibility that those votes were not from actual fans.

    Actually Weiss has a pretty active dupe in the DB section. Freechoice has Basface and god knows how many more.

    There's no need for conspiracies. Look at it like this: What needs to be true for someone to create a dupe and vote for Zoro?

    Alternative one: A fan of Zoro believes that an additional vote will make Zoro look good. That fan has enough time to make an account and vote for Zoro, alternatively log into an older dupe and vote for Zoro.

    Alternative two: A non-fan of Zoro believes that a dupe vote for Zoro will make Zoro look bad. That non-fan has enough time to make an account and vote for Zoro, alternatively log into an older dupe and vote for Zoro.

    In neither case do we need a conspiracy to explain the behaviour. We know that one or more people did actually vote for Zoro with dupe accounts. What we don't know is their motivation for doing so.

    Given that Zoro was cheated out of a win v WB, going with Zoro.

    this post doesn't help the Zoro fanbase.

    I voted for Zoro on every occasion, so I'm not a "Zoro-hater".

    We don't know if it helps or not. If the dupes were actually Zoro fans, then it doesn't help. If the dupes were Zoro haters, then it might deter them from trying the same thing again. It's also good for people to consider that everyone on the internet aren't necessarily what they seem to be. I'm not saying that you or anyone in particular is a Zoro hater. I'm just saying that Zoro haters exist and that they would be interested in making the Zoro fanbase seem worse.
    It might be, or it might not. We don't know whose dupes voted for Zoro, unless someone compares the IPs. What I'm saying is that you can't assume that those people were Zoro fans, especially with how it would reflect on the fan base if they were.

    How am I making the Zoro fanbase look bad? I'm telling you guys about something that should be pretty obvious. And no, you can't trust people on internet forums who we know have made dupes to vote several times, especially when we know that those people have made dupes and voted several times. I just don't understand what makes you so sure that the 6(?) dupes who voted for Zoro were all created by someone who likes Zoro.

    I think you have misunderstood what a conspiracy is and what makes most conspiracies so ridiculous. A conspiracy is when several people conspire to do something shady. The main reason that conspiracies generally are unlikely is the several-people-part and not the something-shady-part. That's because it's harder to organise when many people are involved, and because things tend to leak out. One person doing something shady happens all the time.

    What I'm telling you is a very real possibility is that one person who has done a deed we know that he has done (dupe-vote) might have done so for another reason than you guys believe. That's by definition not a conspiracy and I can't see what would make it a ridiculous notion.

    If only everyone could be this honest.

    Garp is a legend by reputation but hasn't managed to make me like him more than some of the other great Marine characters in the series (for reasons people have already mentioned in this thread).

    So yeah, this is a pretty easy choice for me since Zoro has given us a bunch of memorable moments since the begin of the manga...

    Not being rude but why do people use Zoro and or Sanji in VS discussions/polls when they're summoning their respective cults out and starting a Marineford battle? These two's fans are so overwhelming large, possibly larger than the MC himself.

    Why do you ask that here ? It's hardly the place for, no one spoke about sanji.

    Oh and yes , they do often.

    You can add : Yonko fans vs Admiral fans.
    Mihawk vs Shanks ect ..
