Someone’s hacking the JPOST poll

There's an interesting Poll Game going on at JPOST..

The poll started yesterday:
Are Olmert and Peretz handling the Gaza crisis adequately?

When I voted, there were I think about two thousand responses if I recall, and the results were 39% Yes vs about 61% No.

When I visited Jpost this morning, out of curiosity I checked the results (did not vote again clearly). There was then 11,000 responses and suddenly the poll was 96% Yes, 4% No – Ok!?

Quite a stunning reversal, my curiosity was piqued, but not as cute as this.. About an hour or so later I checked again while visiting the headlines, and now there are over 14,000 responses (3000 in an hour+!) and the results are 95% Yes, 5% No.

Meaning nearly everyone who voted is satisfied with Olmert / Peretz handling of the situation, including about 97% of the 3000+ voters in the last hour or so. For schizzle lol..

*Please note that our online polls are not scientific but offer our site users the chance to express their views about current issues in the news - Heh! You can say that again ;)

What kind of loser employs a bot to manipulate jpost online polls!?
UPDATE: LOL – This previous poll has been entirely reversed! Yesterday it was the exact opposite.

Should Israel trade prisoners for Gilad Shalit?
1 Yes 93%
2 No 7%
TOTAL VOTES: 57929
  • Just goes to show that there's not a lot of mileage to be had in relying on those online polls for information.

  • I noticed that also this morning – what a joke! I don't see how anyone can take it seriously.

  • Agreed, too bad that. There's always someone out there looking to ruin the fun, even if these polls are for informal gauging of the site's visitors..

    Wow, you're right …FAct is,  it’s 2006 and those who agree with bargaining with Hamas Terrorists are likely to be less than 2%…. (Slightly lower than the Palestinian Poll of “5%”  ; )
