Where did anyone say anything remotely corresponding to that? Your posts are becoming increasingly condescending and patronising in equal measure. Peppering them with smily emoticons doesn't alleviate the effect, I'm afraid
You appear to have made your mind up based on your own interpretation of the information you have gleaned - fine. That's what this whole process should be about. However I'm sure you would agree that others may reach a quite different conclusion based on examining the same data. It's not helpful to personalise this issue and talk down to those who disagree with you.
I agree that some of my comments have been laced with a touch of sarcasm. But when people say that the CTC offering modest prizes for voting will unduly influence the outcome of the vote, or that offering a raffle could be seen as a conspiracy to influence the outcome of the vote, perhaps a touch of sarcasm and irony is in order.
Anyone I apologise if I've taken it a bit too far.
