Online web poll manipulated by scientologists?

Postby 'Alert' » Thu Jul 12, 2007 11:05 am

In the aftermath of the murders in Sydney by a women denied psychiatry
by the belief in scientology, The Sydney Morning Herald started an
online poll http://www.smh.com.au/polls/form.html asking:

Who's at fault

Is criticism of Scientology fair?

Yes, a person should not be denied psychiatric treatment

No, this is just a tragic case and should not place Scientology in a
bad light



An email was sent out asking scientologists to vote, and low and behold as most of Australia slept, the poll recieved a spike and the poll was soon turned around in favour of scientology and people voting that it was basically okay to deny people psychiatry.


As of this evening, the poll results were:


Reader Poll
Who's at fault


Is criticism of Scientology fair?
Yes, a person should not be denied psychiatric treatment - 39%
No, this is just a tragic case and should not place Scientology in a
bad light - 61%



In the below youtube link is a report from Today Tonight about the web poll with an interview with the SMH Editor about the skewed results in the middle of the night. The report also conatins who parade.com's poll about Tom Cruise's bad publicity year and how 14,000 votes came from only 10 computers that resulted in Tom being a victim of the Media.

Also in the report is how Aussie clam Kate Ceberano won Dancing with The Stars and it wasnt a far stretch to question if the result may have been influenced (phone call voting deciding the results) by scientologists.

The main premise of scientology being by way of 'agreement' makes for a compelling argument that scientology will wherever it can, will always try to 'align' peoples 'reality' by way of 'agreement' in pursuit of an 'actuality' in its PR attempts.

It should also be mentioned that the rival Network 9 that has its current affairs program on in the same timeslot, ran for 19 minutes straight without an ad-break.

I have *never* seen this before with 9 and it is of little surprise that the 'alignment' was also possibly sort by Packers 25% owned Network that he has been systematically destroying since taking over from his late father, Kerry Packer, and Jamie's taking advice from scientologists.

Thanks for the link Alert. I'm glad to see that the Aussies didn't let them get away with this BS. Will Co$ ever learn?!?

Golly juj, why am I not surprised that you put such little value on the lives of people that are victim to the cult of scientology?

Never believe anything until it has been denied by a $cientologist.

Hmm.. We must not judge Juju unfairly now! - He asks who really wasters their time.. The cultists does of course! - Staging a whole 'operation' with great speed and determinism! A call in and a whole lot of 'em voting there. Getting the online poll to reflect in favor of their cult! - Spectacularly so, and sticking out like a sore thumb!

Quite a show really! :D

But this little voting operation is nothing.. Back in the early 80'ies, I think that was the Wollersheim courtcase, there was a similar call in. To go to Portland in the US to demonstrate in front of the courthouse. There was a whole bunch of people here from Denmark getting on airplanes. More from other countries.

Now that was a waste of time and money! - 'Not a single dime! - For Larry Wollers'heeeime!' they sang while marching. Heh, Larry was payed 8 million, not dimes, but dollars!

But I did get the impression that they had a good time doing it!

Ray Hill posted on ARS:

Made a graph of poll results over time:

=====

On July 11, 2007, the Sidney Morning Herald ("SMH") ran a poll on its
web site, asking "Who's at fault: is criticism of Scientology fair?",
concerning the tragedy.

[graph]

Here is a graph of how the poll results changed over time, from 8h11
EDT, to 21h11 EDT:

* 08h11 EDT
o Yes: 68%
o No: 32%
* 21h11 EDT
o Yes, 42%
o No, 58%

This reversal is strange, especially considering the fact that more than
1,500 people had voted already before the reversal took place. This
means that between 8h11 EDT and 21h11 EDT, 86% voted "No". Many people
have written the SMH to inquire about this suspicious reversal in the
poll results. Maybe we will hear more about this.

At this point, the reader might want to take a look at this news item:
Poll Mistakenly Showed Public Is In Tom Cruise's Corner.

http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2006/04/18/poll_mistakenly_showed_public_is_in_tom_

=====

I will keep updating it, as clearly the "No" side is still voting wildly
as of now...
