    Yankee Rose closed the "Vote for Dave and Sammy" thread. Official reason: because "the poll is now over, and so is this topic."

    The topic remained open for 24 hours, give or take, after the poll was over, but you'll notice that Yankee Rose did not see fit to close the topic until about 10 minutes after I posted to it.

    I find the circumstances of this closing quite PastureDump-like.

    Rather than a series of nasty responses back and forth in this thread, just give the now-closed "Vote for Dave and Sammy!" thread a read and draw your own conclusions.

    My conclusion is that I don't understand why ANYONE gives one flying fuck about these polls at all.

    I'm not asking for a debate about the recent poll. The place for that was in the thread Yankee Rose decided to close immediately after my post.

    Just read the thread and reflect upon the closing.

    Yeah, upon further reflection, I'm going to have a bitch of a time getting to sleep tonight over this. But don't worry about me, I'll survive somehow.

    Yeah thanks for bringing that Dave vs. Sammy topic up Longtime Lurker with that essay you wrote. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I just realized about ten minutes ago that the poll was over so I closed the topic.

    Also, I don't think we need anymore Sammy vs. Dave arguements here, they don't solve anything, so I think it was a good time to close that topic and move on. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    Right Now you're reading my post!

    I think the thread needed to be closed. It wasnt going anywhere, the poll was over, folks were tweeked. Sounds like the perfect recipe for closure. It only could have brought about bad feelings anyways and you know nothing would get resolved.

    Lurker, I was responding to your post as it was closed. I think, for what its worth, you had some fine points there.

    Also, usually if somebody doesnt like what happens with a thread, if you email or pm the mod *in private* [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] about it and give good reason why you think it should still be around, I KNOW every one of us keeps open ears to that, and threads have been known to open back up on occasion. We dont have that much pride man (good luck doing this at the dome).

    In general, overall, I think yankee made a good call closing it. No matter how good your points were, and yes, they were good. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Lurker had some interesting thoughts on the demographics of VH on the web. It was an interesting post, and something we haven't discussed much before.

    I certainly thought the crux of it was much more interesting than the idea of voting for anything over and over again on the internet. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    Dave verses Sammy. The debate never ends. God this debate is so stale! Enough already!
