49. Apparently some script kiddies turned on Mickey Mouth*
Edited on Fri Jul-11-03 05:00 PM by TahitiNut
I doubt that freepers in general are able to make all online polls swing wildly. Some of the online polling has sufficient safeguards against wholesale poll-busting. For the technically-inclined, however, cobbling together a (spoofed IP) HTML interaction (protocol emulation) that provides the 'appropriate' responses to cookies would be a walk in the park. There are many thousands of folks (many of them unemployed in the Busholini eronomy) with enough technical expertise to do this. It really ain't rocket science, just the tiresome minutiae of TCP/IP/HTML protocol emulation.

IMHO, "whom" is properly used (as the object) in the polling question, and I'm a "whom"-er variety of nitpicker. :silly:

Consider the rephrased: "Do you blame (whom) for the mistake <sic> ...? " and "You blame (whom) for the mistake <sic> ... !"

See? (Clearly, "mistake" is the inappropriate term which should be <sic>'ed.)
