beat freepers at their own game
this has been going for about a week. at first the poll has been freeped pretty badly, then kerry people took it back. now freepers are at it again, so i figure i'll come here for help.

2. what is this ongoing game w/FR all about? We're not in grammar school.
No offense intended, but it sounds like the "I'm gonna tell" routine we did as kids....

"what is this ongoing game w/FR all about? We're not in grammar school."

it's kind of fun though...
don't underestimate the power of false sense of victory when you make a meaningles gesture of voting in a local paper's online poll !

5. Beating them harder
If you want to take the poll back for good - open up your 'cookies' folder, delete everything in it that you can and vote. when the new cookie comes up from voting, delete that one, vote again. You can vote as many times as you want on most polls like this.

6. lol
nah, they go by IP address. So you would need a proxy or something like that to get around it. Which I can do to vote a couple of times. But I really don't feel like putting too much work into this...

the only reason i care is because freepers seem to care so much about this poll they keep posting about it every day. may be it makes people think that they are making a difference ?...
