I haven't been on the forum much lately, but am wondering if you'd help me out.  I hate local newspaper polls, as only a few interested parties ever sway the poll, and then you don't even know if the votes are from local folks.  Would you all do me a favor and go to www.austindailyherald.com and vote to keep it's current sorted recycling.

Gracias.

    I'm not from Austin. Wouldn't outsiders voting skew the polls?

    One of the groups I'm a member of functions as a true democracy, so I see this sort of thing a lot, manipulation of the system at it's finest.

    Maybe he works for the newspaper and is doing guerrilla marketing.

    Polls are only worth the recycled paper they're printed on.
