    Here is the email I got today...

    II. SUSAN'S SURVEY

    First, I want to thank all of you who took the time to answer last month's survey. While these surveys are not scientific, they are intended to roughly gauge San Diegans' views on key issues of the day.

    Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to prevent individuals from voting repeatedly without tracking their Internet use through the use of "cookies." As much as I would like to preserve the integrity of my online polls, I understand and respect concerns about Internet privacy and therefore do not use cookies to deter survey manipulation.

    As a result, I regret that I was unable to assess even ballpark results from my last survey regarding the assault weapons ban (AWB). While the typical online poll from my E-Newsletter garners anywhere from 3,000 - 5,000 votes, the AWB survey received hundreds of thousands of votes each day, causing the poll to continually reset itself.

    Despite this inadmissible outcome, I hope that you will participate in this month's survey. Please help to keep it as accurate as possible by voting only once. The views of all San Diegans are important to me, whether they fall within the majority or minority.

    This time, I'd like to ask for your opinions on election reform and hear about your experiences during the November elections.
    Please take a moment to click here and share your thoughts on these critical issues.

    (To maintain the integrity of the survey, please vote only once for each question. Thank You.)


    Here is her next survey...(non-gun)

    ===========================

    I think we would have been better off not "nuking" it but just keeping it skewed in our favor.

    She didn't get the results she wanted, so the poll has to be invalid. You can always count on leftist extremists to try to dispute reality.

    Didn't one of our members write a perl script and execute it on a very powerful computer? Granted, I was amused, but at the same time, nuking did invalidate the poll.

    You can't invalidate online polls; Something's got to be valid to begin with, to be invalidated.

    Ah, I forgot how fun that was and just added about 200 more votes to the AWB vote again. Those were good times. :D

    No results available

    The poll may be back up, but she has the results blocked... Gotta love those ********** politicians... :cuss:

    I'm firmly convinced they have a VERY loose grip on any reality that doesn't conform to their very narrow beliefs. I find it really intersting that San Diego Co. is advertizing in a number of places for more deputies- they are 250 short, because they "held up hiring, pending the elections". Makes you wonder whose safety they are concerned about.
