I actually think it is hilarious that Ron Paul couldn't even get over 50% on ATS.


I guess the golden boy of ATS isn't so golden

You continue to bash Paul, yet couldn't even comprehend the original post.

Well done to you sir.

Haha classic! This OP just about sums up how pretty much everyone on ATS is feeling about the MSM right now. Nice one SO, made me laugh.

You know what? That's not right! There's something wrong with his face: The guy doesn't look happy. Wait. The title. It mislead me. How dare you! I see that RP actually won. I feel better now. But will be happier if he... well, gee, I dont' know. We will see...

My first thought - "ATS NOOOOOOO!!!!!" I am completely relieved that wasn't legit. Well, that Perry got that much support. It was still cool that even in a satirical poll Ron Paul dominates.

I was about to stab myself after reading the results in the opening paragraph
I must have skipped over the "disassociated press" because I was so excited to see the results of this sites poll.

Just to be clear, the image isn't really the results of the poll? That's going to be posted later, right?

Very well done.

HOWEVER

My concern is now this headline can be used by other MSN agencies. ATS has rules such as manners and decorum so as not to adversely affect ATS’s reputation when people use search engines. As much of a good joke this thread is, any news agency putting together internet poles from various sites can and will reference this headline stating Rick Perry was #1.

Yes it’s funny but come on guys you potentially shot Ron Paul in the face…

Overstretching it a bit, as far as seo, but yes, thread titles are quite deceiving often times. We clearly know how some people look at a title and run with it, often times neglecting the content of the thread. This has been displayed a few times in this thread already, whereas people couldn't tolerate to spend 1 minute reading the post before making their marks in the thread.

Truth is, once it becomes more evident to ATS users that it was a joke thread, Perry will just become more of a joke.


It was a great laugh, and the pros outweigh the cons here. So, I don't see any real harm either way.
