(These were highly desired, since, with only 5, 10, or 15 of the respective dragon on the site at the start, they would be the rarest dragons on the site at the time of their release and their offspring would be extremely valuable.) The results imply that when given anonymity, people were willing to rate others low in order to hurt everyone else's chances of winning the contest, or just to troll: out of almost 2.3 million votes cast, the average vote was only 3.74, and even the highest-rated tree had a score of 6.23.
