AFA poll - Zer Netmouse
I, uh, feel like I just gave people who hate me some personal identifying information.
'scuse me while I go scrub my hands.
S'Why I filled it out the information "James Dobson, firstname.lastname@example.org, Colorado, 80901".
One point to Miss Hamish! Er, I mean Misha. :D
HEY! That's MISTER Miss Hamish to YOU, bunko! :-P
Well, yes. :D I was just amused by my first impression!
Don't get me wrong - I too used my spam email. I did, however, use my real name and zip code. Ah well.
It was all good until I clicked "Submit" and was subjected to the results.
I didn't need to know that. I really didn't.
Funny enough, the first time I submitted I got a mysql error. Hmmmmm ... no -way- could the AFA be rigging their own poll!
Oh, they don't have to. I mean, the time will come when they are like "LOOK! We took a poll and people are 7-to-1 AGAINST businesses that push a homosexual agenda! Look right here! We have a POLL!"
Neverminding the fact that A) the poll question and it's lead-up paragraph are so biased as to be laughable and B) the sampling population is "people who visit the AFA website."
I'd hate to see the results if some "outsider" *HADN'T* seen it and brought other people around.
I think it's telling that even when I was a good little line-toeing church boy growing up in the conservative Deep South... I STILL hated the AFA.
*nod* They don't, indeed, and yet, I wouldn't bet on it being technically correct, either - if the poll gets sweeped up by liberal populations outraged with the blatant bias and the conservative folk find it just another blah poll, they could find themselves in an embarrassing situation.
No, they'll LOOK at them. The minority of dissenting voices will "legitimize" the results.

I did this a while ago and was quite distressed by what I saw as well.
What were the results? I'm getting a "page not found" error now.

I tried it, and it didn't come up at all.
unfortunately, it looks like the page has been pulled.
