I get picked on here enough as it is. Don't follow suit for your own sake.
Yes, that would fit with your concept of intelligence.
And that fits with your idea of wry, intelligent wit!
I'm really amazed by your election campaign so far LeHah... admins, can I change my vote? <g>
I want to give my two votes to Frosty.
Added another week to the poll... for all your voting needs!
This thing is on average getting an entire vote per day, it's fucking boring. The poll ends in 24 hours. Step up the pace.
And stop asking to nullify or transfer votes, elections don't work that way.
Erm yeah... and elections normally keep the results secret until the voting actually ends...
No they don't. That's how you often know who's one when only a small percentage of areas have closed their polls.
Oh no! You mean we might statistically affect the Chat Zone vote! DEAR GOD!
We certainly don't see the results vary in real time, and neither do we get any good expectations, until maybe when voting is starting to end. You could count exit polls, but these are never definitive data.
And yes, seeing the results vary in real time DOES affect the voting. Say I hold my vote back till the last minute, because I first want to see who the leaders will be. So we have Mr. Smith vs. Mr. Jones leading the votes. Let's say I initially wanted to vote Mr. Roberts, but absolutely don't want to see Mr. Jones winning... see where I'm getting at?
Congratulations. You've proved that Chat Zone polls differ from national elections. Your prize is...
True. In the CZ the guy with the most votes always wins.
