(Newser) – The Internet pranksters at 4chan and Reddit really want to see Taylor Swift perform on a particular school campus—but no, this is not a ringing endorsement of the pop star. Users are attempting to sabotage an online vote, the "Taylor Swift On Campus" contest, in order to send Swift to sing at none other than the Horace Mann School for the Deaf. The school has more than 17,000 votes so far, but even if the plot works, the Atlantic Wire notes that the concert may not happen: The official rules indicate that Swift isn't locked in to performing at the winning school.
