Whatever you call it, it's your screw-up. And yes, this is a concern, 
because there are plenty of people participating in this vote, who 
might be confused by this, but reluctant to ask for clarifications due 
to language and/or culture barrier. If it's so unbearably painful 
for you to hear the criticism, perhaps you should do a better job of 
proof-reading the ballot (and your replies :-) next time.
