I stopped the poll on how much (if anything) people would be willing to donate for an ad-free ANN because at least one individual used multiple IP addresses to artificially inflate the count. I'm not sure why somebody would do that... I had hoped to be able to gauge how much interest there really was so as to make an adequate decision on what kind of payments to accept, and what kind of income to expect. Since there is no guarantee that I'll be getting an accurate count this way, keeping the poll up wouldn't have been a good idea.

In reply to Comment 3 (Mike):
Don't worry Mike, I expect there's plenty of people who posted two or
three replies to the poll - people will forget, especially if a poll
is available for a while as this one was.
The people that have caused a problem here are the ones who post tens
or hundreds of responses all with the same reply, to deliberately skew
the results.
Regards,
Spudley.
