Ok heres what happened. In the season finale of the show (http://www.debate.org...) I held an online and anonymous poll where people could vote for the show to be renewed or not along with another poll where you voted for best of the best. The problem is that I believe that the poll asking for the show to be renewed has been hacked because it has received 35 votes (20 nay, 15 yay) whereas the other poll asking for best of the best only has 13.....

Now I doubt that 22 people decided to simply skip the best of the best poll but chose to go ahead and vote only on the poll asking for renewal or not, so I have reason to believe that the poll may have been hacked by someone with extreme distaste for the show who has no class and lives a very sad and pathetic existence....

I brought this issue to light with Airmax and he agrees that the poll was probably hacked, so he has granted me permission to hold a straw poll on the main DDO forum. It will be a simple straw poll where people sign their name next to their position (similar to how the presidential elections are run) regarding the renewal of the show. All you do is write down your name and then write either 'yes' or 'no' and then bold it.

Example: Should the Weekly Stupid be renewed for a second season?
Imabench: Yes

Thanks for voting, Im sorry I had to drag the DDO forum into this but some people just have no sense of class on here....

That's why you should use Poll Daddy, it records each and every IP address of a vote and you can then manually check to see if any are Proxys.

Although, just to say, I did vote on only one of the polls for that, but that is only 1 of 22.

F-16: No

I don't know if it has been hacked but I for one did not vote on the best of the best and simply voted no on the remewal poll. I don't know how many other people did the exact same thing - by definition, someone who doesn't want renewal isn't going to be voting on the best of the best, so naturally you are going to have a bunch of people say yes, another bunch say no, and among the people who said yes, they will choose the best of the best.

I have no idea why Airmax agrees if it has been hacked. It is presumptious to assume that the poll has been hacked merely because there are more no votes than yeses. Perhaps there were members who didn't want to publicly oppose the weekly stupid. For instance, Ore_Ele voted no but had never spoken out against the weekly stupid before.

Do it on a separate anonymous poll or have the voters PM their votes to Airmax as an impartial judge.

Obvious that public voting favours yes. Highly unlikely that the other poll had been hacked. People who would vote no are unlikely to vote in the other poll anyway, thus explaining the difference in numbers. I didn't watch the episode so I didn't vote in the first poll but I did vote against renewal. You are just mad to find out the show isnt as popular as you think.

At 2AM the polling for renewal of the show was at around 11 to 2 in favor of renewing the show. When I woke up at 12pm today that number was at 20-15 against the renewal of the show. One of the other reasons I thought it was hacked was because the poll got 32 votes at the time that DDO gets minimum to no traffic whereas the other poll had barely changed.

I have no idea why Airmax agrees if it has been hacked. It is presumptious to assume that the poll has been hacked merely because there are more no votes than yeses. Perhaps there were members who didn't want to publicly oppose the weekly stupid.

Theres no penalty to voting against the weekly stupid though. I wouldnt chastise those who think the show shouldnt be renewed because there are legit reasons to be against the show airing.

For instance, Ore_Ele voted no but had never spoken out against the weekly stupid before.

And I still respect his opinion and hold nothing against him.

Do it on a separate anonymous poll or have the voters PM their votes to Airmax as an impartial judge.

But there isnt any penalty for voting against the airing of the show in public. In the last election Airmax didnt hold a grudge towards those who voted for Medic instead of him and I intend to show the same courtesy towards those who vote against the show as well. Also as you can see, none of the supporters of the show has been critical towards Ore_Ele or yourself so I dont see why people would want to remain anonymous if they really think the show shouldnt be renewed...

Thaddeus if you could pull your head out of your a** long enough to consider that there is a good amount of evidence showing the poll could have been and was hacked, then maybe you could get it through your thick empty skull that im doing this because I think the poll was hacked....

If anything, it makes for interesting conversation. I don't look at all the forums, nor do I look at all the threads. It's cool to see what conversations people are having.

Interesting how some people, like Ma'am Royal, are so full of themselves as to not be able to ignore one single place where they are mentioned in negative ways. I'd obliterate her idiotic opposition to Imabench if it wasn't obvious enough that the show will continue regardless of her nonsensical approach to it. She has 18k+ posts, all filled with hatred, lies, personal attacks to the highest degree, etc., and nobody asks for her to be obliterated from this website -- but obviously she needs special care and attention due to a humorist show.

Imabench, flush the opposition and start not to care. Sheesh.

Mirza the show airs to be entertaining, if nobody is entertained by it then theres no point in airing the show and I wont keep airing the show if people arent entertained by it.

Hmm, the voting in the middle of the night changes things. I was unaware of it. Oh, well, if someone hacked, I hope they come out and admit it.

There were a lot of reasons to conclude the poll may have been compromised, I just didnt feel like elaborating on all the evidence for why I think it was hacked :P

Also I doubt whoever compromised the poll will come out and admit it....
