I wonder which is worse in this context, being dishonest or ignorant?
All that "poll" proves is that twice as many web page posts for one
selection than for another were received over an undisclosed period from an
unknown set of IP addresses some unknown number of which may have been
automated or from non-browser applications and others were from an unknown
number of people who may or may not have cookies enabled in their
browser.... and so on in terms of possibilities.
(BTW I take back that request for reply-to change. I had wanted more
convenience for myself without thinking of the expense of increased risk
for the list ... kind of a metaphor for much of the source of Internet
