I'm certainly not surprised by this result, having seen popular votes gamed on the internet for, like, forever.
Time to vote the way I always vote: Read the nominees. Determine what I like, in order of preference. Use "No Award" to draw the line between what I do and don't want to give a Hugo.
Two early predictions for Worldcon 2016:
- A fairly short Hugo Awards ceremony, similar in result to 2015.
- The "E Pluribus Hugo" and/or "4/6" motions pass with large majorities.
ps - that My Little Pony episode better be *really* *really* good.
