What's there to argue? It was obviously Picard! :D

They are never truly representative and never will be unless people actually tell the truth rather than responding about wheat they think should be the 'right' answer or the answer that makes them look the best. And then you have a whole and very large section of the population that refuses to take part in polls: another factor in making any results meaningless.

In a case like this, it's about which sort of fans can be bothered to vote. It's like these online polls where an Internet friend can win a competition due to a (for example) photo they have submitted to a competition. Then it's rarely about how good the photo is, it's more about how many Internet friends you have. And that's how it should be. I don't think anyone should take these sort of polls too seriously. The magazines tend to do them because they get a good response and people get annoyed when something they consider to be rubbish, gets lots of votes. :mrgreen:


Its all in good fun. (even debates resulting from them) :D I never take them seriously and i don't think most people do either (even ones that may act like they do) they can get conversations going, and like most stuf online they provide a small distraction.

In this case it doesn't really matter, it's only if someone wants to publish 'real science' from it.

You say it like there is something wrong with that............. :lol: :lol:

I have found alot of these "quizzes" are biased. As my dad always said... "Consider the source!" Good advice in all areas of life.

Some "quizzes" are put out by people with a vested interest in what is put UP for nomination in the first place.

The result are in. here the article on it

I agree with some of the comments expressing confusion at why The Walking Dead is so high. I like the show, but it never seemed to be have an active fanbase. Large, certainly, but not in the leagues of Browncoats, trekkies, or whovians.
