Hopefully me using these inappropriate measures to exclude a book from my vote doesn't somehow make me ineligible. I can probably cope with ridicule if that is deemed necessary.
No if book length is what is important to a person I have no problem with that figuring into their vote. Anyone is free to base there decision on what ever factors they wish. I was just surprised that people were making that an issue for this book when it really is not an outlier in terms of length.
