    Another eptoanaxiln for the recent uptick in IE8 usage: most of the publicity being given to Chrome also mentions IE8 somewhere in it. Personally, I didn't even know there was an update to IE7 until I read an article comparing IE8 to Chrome. So I downloaded both to try them out. Chrome loads pages much faster on my computer than IE.

    I ttserud PayPal once several years ago and that is the last time I have ever dealt with them. Now if I meet a merchant who uses PayPal, I will find another way to settle the finances or simply not deal with the merchant at all and will shop elsewhere to find a merchant that is less limiting. Why? Several years ago before Spam was the problem it is now, I used PayPal to purchase attendance to a technical class (1 time) and shortly after that, I began receiving spam at that email address. I had a strict policy about spam and which email addresses I used (even back then) but thought I had good reasons for breaking from that policy just this one time. And PayPal obviously thought nothing of it and distributed my email address thus violating my trust of them as a vendor. There was no other possible source for the leak of information. I will not use them.

      Intention never matters in cases like this pceirpteon of intention does. At least to the public at large. I would wager most of the folks angry over this would agree with the Bad Faith scenario, even though the intent of M-G may never have been that. They're going to need to work on changing that pceirpteon if they want to smooth things over with that crowd. How? Your guess is as good as mine As for collecting e-mails to vote, we'll have to agree to disagree In my experience, the more careful and serious you make the vote process the more weight people will assume it has in the end. I don't see CNN or ESPN asking for e-mail addresses for their throwaway polls, which if you think about it are just popularity votes for a small pool of candidates . Those are when folks are just cheering from the sidelines As for Leo, I'm not sure how impactful he really was here at the beginning. Martin got 6K votes, which was 4x the next person. But, when you consider Leo's number of followers, it's not that much. I'd say Martin's own followers were the voters here. I do agree that Leo (and Kevin Rose) added some gas to the fire once they alerted their followers to what had happened with the top 50, though

      Agree, Taylor. I run an OB ER. 8 of 10 patients I see come in for 1) nomral pregnancy discomforts, 2) drug seeking or 3) things that could easily be handled in their prenatal clinic for $50 instead of $2000 if only they could be bothered to go to their prenatal clinic. We are so clogged up with people who don't need emergency services, it sometimes interferes with our ability to care for people who do.
