"Not a Scientific Poll" 23.Apr.2005 09:54

No Shit.

Gee. Do you think "li2U News" is really going to tell us the truth? Yeh, Like they always do. Yeh. Suuure. Also, as we know, "homeland security" has been feeding fake letters to the editor all over the US regarding supposed support for the war. (See whatreallyhappened.com, among others, for the story that broke last year about US servicement discovering their names had appeared without their consent in hometown newspapers in letter to the editor telling people how awful it was for them to hear about those bad old anti-war protesters.) So who has the time/ambition to sit around making 11,000 hits at the KATU website? Why, only those with a stake in this, of course. And that's us...and them.

katu poll acting strangely 23.Apr.2005 12:52

following this

Yes 52%
No 48%

Wow, that IS Strange 23.Apr.2005 13:12

Stranger

It's almost as if, even though the site says, "Each person may only vote once", that ,in fact, each person could vote lots and lots of times, if they wanted to, and thereby manipulate the results. ;-)

If Voting Changed Anything 23.Apr.2005 13:27

They'd Abolish It

Well, it does say each person MAY vote once. And indeed they may, or they may vote ten thousand times or zero times. Isn't voting a hoot?

Does not matter 23.Apr.2005 17:20

The dirt bags did not report the results anyway. They report that 57% are opposed, 27% dunno, and the rest approve. That report came just as the little online thingy reported that 57% were in favor, and 43% against, and who the fuck cares about those who don't have an opinion?
