Well, I should come clean and admit something. My intention wasn't really to find out what percent of visitors were pro-gun or pro-control (truthfully, I think most are pro-gun since most comments and trackback links come from them). My intention was actually to test the ethics of the pro-gun folks. But I figured I'd give you the chance.
You see, guys, if you had been representing yourselves in an honest manner, the number of hits would have remained relatively constant from previous days, whatever the results from the poll. But if you instead put out the word on forums and tweets and such that there was a poll that needed to be overrun with responses from your side, hits would go way up and the results would be skewed. I figured that would be the case, but you far exceeded my expectations.
Now, before you call me a bigot and a liar (as you often do), let me show the evidence. On THIS
pro-gun forums, "DanM" started a discussion with,
"This Ceasefire-Oregon weenie put a poll up on his blog's main page. Hit it hard!"
The readers didn't disappoint.
