Subject: MSNBC.com Live Vote Date: Mon, 18 Sep 2000 21:30:34 -0700 From: "Dube, Jonathan" To: "Dube, Jonathan" Please note: MSNBC.com removed the operating systems Live Vote Monday morning after we became aware that the number of votes looked suspicious. We have since posted an editor's note explaining what happened. You can find it here: http://www.msnbc.com/news/459031.asp. Jonathan Dube Technology Editor MSNBC.com
For the record, here's the editor's note:
EDITOR'S NOTE: Sept. 18 -- MSNBC has removed the Live Vote originally published with this story due to what appeared to be electronic ballot stuffing. The Live Vote, which asked readers which personal computer operating system they think is the best, received a large influx of votes in the past few days, skewing the results. MSNBC has removed the Vote in light of this. MSNBC Live Votes are not scientifically valid surveys. Click here to read more about MSNBC Live Votes.
