Sample Size - 273 votes. Some people passed on one or more questions presented in the survey.
One interesting trend I noticed is that the voting was almost 90% in favor of registration and moderators for the first half of votes, then the numbers were almost reversed for the second half of voting.
The numbers didn't have any period of spike, and there were no repeated IP addresses that I found in a cursory search, so I don't think there was any "stuffing of the ballet box" going on.
All in all, the numbers speak for themselves, we are split pretty much right down the middle on registration requirements and the desire for appointed moderators. Seems pretty strong evidence that if there are ever moderators appointed most people would like to know who they are.
Thanks for participating folks.
