    They often do test pages which are supposed to be not visible. Something like this happens every election cycle.

    This is an instance of never assume malice where stupidity is the more valid explanation.

    This image here seems to show actual malice. The vote totals 132%. Russians are always enthusiastic about politics.

    To err is human. To really foul things up takes a computer.
