  The above seems to be totally fradulent poll. The "voting" page states
  Ralph Nader says Microsoft is unsafe at any speed. Is he right?
  Yes: Someone needs to keep Microsoft in check.
  No: Ralph, stick with chasing Corvairs.
  But the "results" page states something UNRELATED with a suggestion of
  Nader's unfairness (sure they want to publish this)
  Ralph Nader says Microsoft may be unsafe at any speed. Is AmericaÂ’s top
  consumer advocate on to something?  
  Yes: 5205
  No:  4266
  Makes me sick
   And I've heard now that Microsoft has gone after
