EA are violating the Shorty Awards rules – will they be disqualified?

Taken from the Shorty Awards Rules:

We reserve the right to disqualify nominees that do any of the following: violate trademarks, infringe copyrights, impersonate others (except in the #fakeaccount category, where this is encouraged), invade privacy, make threats of violence, promote illegal activities, promote pornography, spam others, use bots, scripts or other automated means for voting, engage in abusive behavior, promise anything of value in exchange for a nomination, or otherwise violate the friendly spirit of the awards.

Thank you rosierealea for pointing this out on The Sims 3 Forum.

Here are the ways you can contact The Shorty Awards and point out this violation of their rules:

email – info@shortyawards.com

Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/shortyawards

Twitter – http://twitter.com/@shortyawards

Considering the love that EA have for banning and warning people, wouldn’t it be karma if they were booted out for this?

Edit – I’d just like to add, for I am a Libran so I like balance and harmony, that this is a great opportunity for EA to redeem themselves to the community. Maybe if they are disqualified it will be the wake up call they need? I hope so. Because I like The Sims and have done since day 1.

  1. I emailed the Shorty Awards a few days ago but no response as yet. I was encouraged to do so by AE’s post on the official forum, which they featured over on TMN. I hope lots of others also send an email. If it’s just a few of us they probably won’t take much notice but if they get a deluge of messages they may take it more seriously.
