Alfie you are of course right - online polls are unreliable for the reasons you give. Anyway I'd be surprised if BA made the Top 10 in a reliable poll - that's an unreliable gut feeling only.

It comes to a fine thing when we have to rely on 'Admin' for the laughs - Jivvy where are you ?

It seems to be an online survey with apparently no ID required to vote. This to me means it cannot be considered very reliable.

Does this mean you won't be running any more polls Alfie?  ;D ;D ;D

I'm not sure. Maybe I'll start a poll to guage support for another poll.  :D

Nice one Admin ! You gotta laugh Alfie  ;)

But when we voted in our Poll we had ID ?

One vote per member makes it fairly reliable in my opinion. And I didn't see a sudden surge of "new" members joining the forum and voting in the poll.

I suspect the airlines Poll is OK

My problem with that poll is that the only thing stopping someone from voting multiple times is, according to info from their website, they restrict it to one vote per IP address. As most people's IP address changes frequently, and other means of changing one's IP address are available and commonly known and used these days, the poll is unreliable. It doesn't mean that the winners didn't deserve to win, but it does mean that we cannot be sure that they deserved to win. Therefore it is unreliable.

Clearly, the Western intelligence community now has the details of the people behind the attack. The sad events in Salisbury will add even more evidence. Everyone from the CIA, FBI, DGSE in France, etc. will have the full details.

But they don't. The security minister, Ben Wallace, tweeted that the PA report (which other media outlets are quoting) belonged in the “ill-informed and wild speculation folder”.

The sinking of the 'Phoenix' - a picture in this link. Both boats left in the face of severe weather warnings . . . .

''My condolences to the families of the 47 Chinese holidaymakers who were killed when the diving boat they were on sank in the waters off Phuket in a fierce storm on July 5. It's a massive loss. The tragedy has hit the island's tourism sector hard, but it is only the latest in a long list of problems there. We have heard of tourist scams, wildlife exploitation, forest encroachment, human trafficking and more. All of these are byproducts of rampant tourism. In the latest incident, two boats capsized. The other was carrying 35 tourists and seven crew, but all survived without injury. In contrast, nearly half of those aboard the Phoenix did not make it out alive''.

From the BBC re. the cave rescue :-

''A giant mural entitled The Heroes has been created in Chiang Rai, Thailand, to honour the rescue operation that saved 12 young footballers and their coach, who were trapped in a cave for over a fortnight.''

Ive been using for two months now and it is still great. I watched all the world cup matches on either BBC or ITV in HD quality and I dont think it froze once.
If people are looking for a tv provider and they dont try this system on a free offer then they are certainly missing out.
