PZ Myers is a lefty biology prof up in Morris who writes a blog called Pharyngula. Like you'd expect from a biology prof, he's pretty strongly pro-evolution. He's also an atheist. A very rational guy all around. Who hates online polls. I can't disagree with him since online polls are statistically meaningless, but PZ, by virtue of his very large readership (I think it's six figures plus), does something about it.
When he finds a poll that offends him, he mentions it to his readers who then click on over and totally skew the poll, usually not in a way appreciated by the people conducting it. PZ especially loves to "pharyngulate" anti-Darwin and anti-atheist online polls, and I join in because I love to see biased polls get crapped on.
I think it's time Canis Hoopus harness its vast readership to do the same.Dudes and the occasional dudette — we've got the numbers. No one else has a readership in SB Nation like Canis Hoopus does. It's within our power to game polls, maybe even ESPN polls. I suggest we start small, but not too small. Here's the current results of a "what's the Twolves biggest problem" poll over at Bleacher Report:
You can vote here. I voted for defense, but I suspect many of you will favor other
Or maybe CH has 800-comment long game threads because a handful of us like to chat. A lot. Is Canis Hoopus an online Bigfoot or just chatty?
