With my vote cast, and 286 days left in the poll the results so far are 1 vote "yes" and 16 votes "no", zero "Maybe" votes.

I see Oystein gets a mention in the article on the Harrit et al debunking. I also see an exhortation to donate for an independant dust study..... another one?? Will this one conclusively indicate the presence of pixie dust?

It will conclusively indicate the need for further independent studies and more donations.

No problem...I was responding to Oystein knowing that he would get the cryptic comment. I forgot about other members.

I am emailing with JM Talboo, one of the contributors to that blog, and we are on friendly and respectful terms.

This other new study is Mark Basile's. I haven't "officially" endorsed it yet, mainly because Mark stopped responding to me months ago after a first phone call. But his proposal is not unreasonable, and I think he is an honest chap.

Ummm I voted no a little while ago and I could have sworn it was in the 60's. Maybe it's a software glitch, maybe it's not. It said 56 when I just checked.

As Dcdrac noted, it is possible to change your vote (some might misunderstand the question being asked at first?), might have something to do with it?

Yes: 7 (8%)
No: 75 (91%)
Maybe: 0 (0%)

This thread has had 269 views so far, which may have something to do with the votes rising quickly.

If 1,000 people vote in this "poll" and 999 votes yes, Truthers will claim this means that 99% of the USA thinks 9-11 was an inside job.

Nitpick: It should say 93% for the No option since 105 of 113 is actually 92.920353982%.

I voted (no, of course), but most Internet polls, if maybe fun, are rather silly and meaningless, to be honest.

That doesn't stop CT'ers from making a big to-do about them. When they support their cause, that is.

It must have been an inside job !

If that's not evidence of an inside job, then I don't know what is

Wow, that is some staggering, ridiculous, shameless dishonesty And if enough people change their vote the poll question will no doubt magically transmogrify yet again.

Just like I always say, you don't have to be a sociopath to be a Truther...


...but it certainly would explain a lot.

It's also interesting to see that with all the people voting in the poll, hardly any are willing to contribute to Mark Basile Yet Rick S donated $1 on 1/25/12 Well before the appeal started
