Portrait of Kari S
Mimi Pirate.... oh what do we do with you? I don't understand how you can question what my name is. My posts clearly explain. Do you have a conspiracy theory? Do you think one day I am Kari and one day I am Emily? Let me set the record straight and in simple terms that you can understand. I am Kari. My daughter is Emily. She left her facebook profile up, which automatically logs me into Lillith Fair with her profile, even on a different tab. I didn't realize this until after I had posted it. And I corrected the mistake and posted that under my name. Even so what proof is that of cheating? And hmmm, as you say, just what does make that so interesting? I said my daughter wanted to vote, so she did and has a profile that shows up here. When responding to your accusations, I certainly would never have posted under her name intentionally, knowing how vindictive you are. I have explained over and over that my son voted with me using his account. You probably think that I am lying about my son liking Mindy, but he really does. As a family, we went to Mindy's concert in AZ that was a fundraiser for her friend and friend's husband that were terribly injured in a plane crash. I even bought an extra ticket and brought a friend. My daughter falls asleep every night to Golden Slumbers that Mindy sang on a compilation album. My son sings along to it when I play it on my computer. My kids know the words to her songs. Regardless, I should not have to justify the existence of my children nor their preference in music.

For some reason you have decided to single out Mindy, most likely in hopes that you will disqualify her so one of your favorites will win. Hmmm, I smell a rat. Cheating by way of multiple false allegations (or allegations that have been addressed to explain the entire story, not just a short blurb on a blog) in order to have your favorite artist win. You are guilty of the very thing that you accuse me and other Mindy fans of doing. Take a screen shot of that

It seems no one has taken your bait to have the screen shot sent to them, except for me. You won't send it to me. I asked for the administrator’s email address from you and you won’t post it. When I have personally addressed you, you won't respond to me. If you are naive enough to think that other fans of other artists didn't do the same thing when voting, you are mistaken. That is why the contest was structured like it was, voting 4 at a time and a mandatory 15 seconds before ranking that artist. But like someone said, it is impossible to spend 10 hours a day voting, at least for me it is. I just don't understand why you refuse to believe the answers for which you asked.

I truly believe that if you contact Lillith Fair and complain, and when they look at all your accusations and then read the explanations, I don't think they will believe you. They know that no matter what the fans' rules are that the artists can't control the fans. In addition to addressing your concerns and when they see the positive comments I have made to most all the artists, that it will only make you seem vindictive and unbelievable. I think you have shot yourself in the foot by doing what you did. It's called Karma. Take another screen shot.

I find it hard to hate you, b/c I feel that someone that is so willing to accuse without all the facts, then deny the facts after they are explained, and overall not ever have anything nice to say must be a person that is not happy with themselves. Clearly you are not finding happiness at Lillith Fair, so maybe it’s time to move on and find something that does make you happy. Best of luck to you in the real world

what channel do you think it belongs to?

Mimi Pirate

I am the one who used multiple facebook accounts to vote. For the record, if you are going to report Mindy as cheating, she did not. She doesn't even know me. First off, let me say that I did not know that you could not do that. Second, my kids LOVE Mindy's music. The were with me when I was voting and they would make me let the entire song play before I could vote. My son even sang along b/c he had heard it play from the artists section or whatever section you could click on to listen. They all have Mindy's music on their ipods by there own choice. But if you are going to report, please be fair and include the other artists that I voted for as well. I love the song Save Me From that Cage (and have bought her latest album on itunes b/c of this competition) and I put her song as #1 everytime I heard it. My son knows the words to that song now as well b/c he was standing by me telling me which songs he liked. I also loved and voted for I Will Wait, always ranking it #1 when it came on. Another song you need to report is Thursday Afternoon, b/c that song grew on me and I started voting for it for #1 when it came on. The last song that really was music to my ears was Make You Happy, which I voted for as well.

When I was voting, Mindy has entered the competition 22 days late and I thought that if she couldn't win that I would want Save Me From That Cage to win, and I actually had more opportunities to vote for that song than most others. There were songs that I just did not like at all, and so according to the voting system of RANKING your favorites, I didn't rank them as #1. And honestly, you know that you can't open up 2 Facebook pages at the same time on the same computer, so only one facebook page was up at a time. My kids asked to hear some of the songs that I just listed as what I see your favorites are too.

So by all means, I will report myself as well, and 4 of your favorites will have the same thing happen to them. And I guarantee you that I got to vote for Emme Packer, Cassia Ami, and Tiger Gilliam MANY MANY more times than Mindy's song ever came up.

So don't be a poor sport. One person's voting for 2 hrs can not change the ENTIRE competition. So you if you would please give me that email address to report myself, I would be entirely happy to do so. We will see if you have enough integrity to post it, seeing how I did the same thing with 4 of the 5 artists who you picked as favorites too

With honesty
