I love the manual voting system for many reasons. Here are some reasons why I think it should stay

1. It seems fairer/more democratic somehow (I know this illogical, but hey that's my opinion)
2. There have been many many times when a article has slipped by my radar, and I only come across it, when the monthly competition has it, and I am like wow why did I not see this one before. I am sure I am not alone in this point. Would be a great shame to miss out on some great articles. I know this happens as my own articles generally get a lot more votes all of a sudden when a competition starts, and I a lucky enough to have an article in it.
