    I think just over 50% would be good (i.e. 52). This will give soccer a realistic lead, and should make an impression on those that may think soccer doesn't have a pressence in the US. We'll just have to be sure to maintain that level once stuffing has been completed. That is, any drop, and we throw a couple hundred more votes at the ballot.

    And of course, you don't have to delete all your cookies if you don't want to (if you don't want to lose all your "save my username" info for other sites) - just the "Cookie:[your e-mail name]" and "Cookie:[your e-mail name]" in your temporary internet files.

    Ahh yes.. There is a subtle science behind ballot stuffing. I'm all about efficiency. Does that make me a loser??? Well... I guess so :(

    Up to 44%! Great job stuffing the ballots! Of course, all this proves is that we're more computer literate than NASCAR fans. No surprise there. :D

    It does record all your votes this way, but the msnbc poll only re-tallies things every minute. It added in all my votes when I was pretty sure I was voting alone for a bit.

    Of course, it sounds like you already found your own efficient method of ballot stuffing.
  7. Guys since we are ahead of this one. There is another poll that needs help. It's about this past weekends sporting events and it includes the mls all star game. It's in last place so lets go to work. Voting ends at 6.

    Soccer is at 44%. Keep it up! We have to beat out Nascar.
  9. These results will be printed in the star ledger tomorrow so everyone will see the results in the sports section. By the way, the Star ledger covers the metros. Lets show them theres alot of interest in the mls.

    This is awesome. We're winning in both polls. Soccer is at 44% and NASCAR at 34% at the MSNBC. In the Star Ledger poll, we're winning with 60%.

    Mumblety Peg involves throwing a jack-knife around. Not exactly a game played very often by today's children.

    We don't want to stuff the ballot TOO much or otherwise it's obvious.

    The link didn't take me to a polling site! What gives?
    (MSNBC) I voted at the other site: MLS 69% when I left.

    I'm an atheist and a NASCAR fan. So what if they want to pray before the race? I just ignore it, remain respectful of other people's beliefs and then enjoy the race.

    And if a few misguided non-christians are offended, NASCAR isn't going to miss them.

    Why should we be? We've taken enough bashing already. Now it's time for some fun. This ballot-stuffing is fun.

    Oh yeah, you showed him!

    Well, you showed him that 12 fanatics can stuff a poll with votes and then use their fabricated results as "proof" that he's an idiot. That's something...right?

    isn't identifying your entire league with a single religion a prime example of NOT being respectful of other people's beliefs?

    And your comment, "who needs people who are botherd by this," (paraphrased) would fit nicely into the view you would find most reprehensible--those who feel people of only a certain religion are welcome watching their sport.

    He doesn't know how the poll was stuffed.

    It would probably be a more effective method to keep him from writing badly about soccer than 100 angry emails ever would.

    Poll stuffing is indeed effective--it gets people on all-star teams, allows certain games to be featured on sportscenter, etc. Also, its fun! Sort of like giving the finger to all the people who voted for NASCAR in a poll conducted and skewed by NBC to demonstrate the rising stock of their new sports signee.
