Misspelling "You Didn't Nominate What I Wanted"

My standing Google search turned up the first (it probably won't be the last) of the blog postings declaring the Hugo Awards illegitimate because the poster doesn't like the mix of nominees and because those people who did cast ballots didn't nominate a bunch of Japanese works.

I wonder how many people who complain like this actually nominate? Darn few of them, I suspect, even if they happen to be eligible, and the rest certainly don't see any reason they should (*gasp* *shock* *horror*) pay money to vote!
