Come on people! We need two more votes for Yes!

Or one no vote to switch sides...

How many likes are you willing to pay?  ;D

I will give you 77 of Jmack's.

Perhaps, but I'm going to need some assurances.

If you need a court order, I can help you with that. But don't make me bring out the blackmail folder.

*Ahem* I'm still sitting at 125 likes over here... Clearly you're not seeing how this phishing scam works.

So this is how people get high like counts. Who knew?!  :o

If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have any money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you switch your vote now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will unlike you.

Or, you know, I'll give you like 30 likes. Will that do?

Did someone turn off likes or is it just me?  ???

Hmmm, I still see them. Let me look, maybe the Writing Group needs to be added to the permissions for it (and is overwriting your old access)_.

EDIT: OK, you should see them again now, if not let me know.

We see them fine, but we also see that the people whose paws we greased still haven't changed their vote.

What a depressing world. The US politics really upped the bar when it comes to the amount of lobbyists needed to turn a voter...

If I could find my old account I used to rig polls on here, I would try and help. Alas, we have British politics on this forum.

I said earlier that I could change my vote from no to yes, but there are now too many other no votes so I don't want to disappoint them ;D

@Saurus, could you perhaps do us a favour and vote yes?

But even if she does, it's a tie.
Who decides, in the end? Xia?

I swear I remember him saying that if it's a tie he'll put it back in, but I cannot find it anywhere...  :o

Yep, I think I remember that too, but I've been reading the most likely threads and can't find it either.
 :o

Edit: actually, found it. He said ™I won't change anything back if the result is a close one" - so I guess Saurus' vote won't matter.

Which would then prompt you to change your's and we try it out again. ;D
