Default Re: Avengers Assembled: News and Speculation - - - Part 69

That was an online poll in which people could vote multiple times, as opposed to a scientific poll conducted by a reputable polling organization. They also failed to give the number of participants. Anyone with a brain understands that the results are worthless. But if it makes someone feel good, that's something.

The People's Choice Awards are also now conducted online and encourages multiple votes, whereas when it started it was based upon Gallop Poll results from a random sample of US residents. The ballot-stuffing nature of the PCA renders it nothing but useless fluff, but whoever wins will crow about it, anyway. (I reserve the right to crow if The Avengers wins anything because I'm petty like that. )

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
