I have a sense of humor. I sensed no humor.

I've never liked a sense of humor.

Get over it - you lost.

the humor has a sarcastic ring to it. read closely.

I liked it.

freebird: In a more accurate sense, we all lost.

As my first Mefi post I would like to say there is nothing funny about this post.

who cares? this is just sour grapes by the side that lost.
perhaps one day, in a vague sort of way, we should maybe sort of think about possibly investigating the voting process and the ties betwen the people who count the votes and the side that won.

but for now, you losers need to just deal with results. you must also never, ever, criticize or judge what is obviously the greatest voting system ever devised: anyone who does is an elitist who doesn't think people who disagree with them should vote. a few weeks before this poll, people were giving "the success of mozilla firefox" no chance to win. shows just how out of touch with the user base you guys are.

I think this was of insufficiently general interest for a FPP. Also I didn't get the joke. And I'm more interested in Firefox than most.

Jeez, what a bunch of grouches! I laughed out loud! And I NEEDED that laugh.

I get it...it just wasn't that funny.

Now, Don Rickles. HE's funny.

If you want FireFox comedy, this is FireFox comedy. (The apologetic sequel is also a laugh riot.)

Thanks, eyeballkid, those did get a chuckle out of me. Maybe I'm not a grouch after all!

I thought it was funny. Did I miss the bible verse that states that humour involving references to elections is forbidden?

PLEASE! THAT WAS HILARIOUS. LIGHTEN UP! I will say, though, that it is ironic to me that the companies that manufacture electronic voting systems are Republican run with ties to the present administration. There is no independent review system to evaluate their accuracy. The only software review system is within the companies themselves. Also, almost all of the errors that have been found since the election are Kerry votes that "magically" got turned into Bush votes.

Did I miss the comment in the thread where it says that humor involving elections is forbidden? What RockCorpse said about covers it.

I don't have to like anything.

But I have nothing at all against humorous links. Let me know when you find some!

As a European I'd like to say how disappointed we are with America for letting this happen. We've learnt our lesson about electronic voting before.

As an American, I'm not surprised that you're disappointed.

Navek Rednam,

I understand Europe's disappointment in the Firefox Importance poll, and as an American, promise my utmost to make sure the Mozilla Foundation does not repeat their mistake.
