Telstra Caught Vote Rigging

from the everyone's-doing-it dept

As if anyone pays attention to online polls anymore? A few weeks back Microsoft was caught rigging a poll about .Net, and now, Telstra has been caught rigging a poll for ZDNet Australia about their pricing. Most of the positive votes all came from within Telstra, though the company claims it was just some rogue employees – and not a concerted effort. No one even pays any attention to the polls and yet people feel this strange need to tilt them in their own favor.
