  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Agreed. One of the options was "I'm here for the polls"

    Well, I'm here for the TROLLS, motherfuckers!

    Sometimes, I get the feeling that folks don't even read the comments that they are replying to . . .

    It's obvious that the companies in San Fransisco DO have a hiring problem because they don't compensate for the enormous increase in the cost of standard of living there and they expect one to take a shitty salary and live out in the sticks commute for an hour one way.

    I mean really, who is going to give up a relatively secure job with benefits, a 20 minute commute and a life to move to SF for an obscenely high cost of living, working for a startup that'll more than likely close its doors in 6 - 12 months all for a "competitive" salary?!

    NFW! I don't want "competitive". I want obscene!

    To be compensated for the risk of working for a startup, I demand at least a 20% increase in pay, cost of living to live near by (none of this commuting for an hour BS) and equity - none of the LOTTERY ticket BS of stock options - those are for suckers.

    To work for the "Next Big Thing" startup in SF, I need at least $500,000 + equity.

    Unreasonable? Absolutely!

    I have a nice comfortable life in a suburb, a house with a yard, tennis, pool, good schools for the kids, 20 minute commute.

    All because the tech companies decided that being in the city is retarded. So, they moved out the suburbs where the workers want to live - even the companies whose HQs are downtown have their IT/development in the 'burbs.

    SF is for lammoes and mediocre companies with no imagination.

    Alpharetta Georgia is where I'm talking about - up the 400 corridor. No shortage of qualified people here.

    Wonder why that is?

    And when Ethanol-fueled says "I'm here for the TROLLS", it's a verb, not a noun.

    Do the editors read these stuff?
    Do the editors read what they post?
    Do the editors know the meaning of "editor"?
    Do these editors actually exist?

    What's even funnier is that it's modded "Offtopic". A meta-whoosh, if you will.

    I don't even see the comments. I just see yro, Apple, Privacy and can derive the 36 Full - 8 Abbreviated - 419 HIdden comments from that alone.

    Yeah, you know who else had a neck? Hitler!
