    Re: Do white supremacist web sites serve an important purpose?

    Wow, I'm for free speech, but I must admit that I underestimated the "potential number" of those who might well be white supremacist. That explains a few things.

    Captain, you might disagree (as do I) with the 35 people you just deleted, but I wonder if their names were shown on the vote if it'd been the same.

    Thanks. I was wondering the same thing myself. I'd bet these same people don't post their racist hate on their real Facebook accounts where their identity is known and they would have to take responsibility for their views.

    sam, that is true. it doesn't, however, mean they serve any purpose whatsoever.

    If they were actual members, I wouldn't have touched the poll. We don't actually know whether this is the work of several posters, or one poster. In the past, I caught one poster doing something like this, sometimes as many as 100 times. I have an admin tool that allows me to see who actually voted in anonymous polls. In this one, before I changed the number, there were 33 anonymous votes for option #4. If I get the chance, I can figure out who it is, if it's one person. It is vauge's intent to keep the Polls section open for non-members to vote in order to encourage these folks to possibly join DP. It was NOT his intent for a group of cowardly racists to "game" a poll so they can improve their obvious lack of self-worth and provide inaccurate information to the membership... or to give the impression to NON-members that this is a racist website.

    If the OP of a poll requests me to fact-check the numbers, I will and I will remove "gaming" if necessary.

    Thanks, Cap. I hope like hell they weren't active members. That wouldn't be good "IMHO".

    They weren't. Only TWO active members voted for option #4. And one has a grand total of 3 posts and admitted that he was a white supremacist.

They at least remind us that racism still must be dealt with.

    What do you think?
    Where is the requirement that any website serve a purpose?

    Changed the poll numbers again. Hey... moron racists. You all are cowards, hiding behind your anonymity just like you used to hide behind your white sheets. But I do have a gift for you. I find this picture hilarious... don't you?
