I anticipated that the poll would be gamed when you published the original article. Not surprising and I am unsure what one can do to prevent it.

One thing's for sure, you did get a response. As a buddy used to say, "When they're picking on you at least they're leaving someone else alone." : )

Big Pharma is more than willing to eliminate the competition, especially doctors that give bad reviews on their vaccines. Permanently silencing doctors is very much part of their game plan. Manipulating polls is just the tip of the iceberg. You could ask Dr. Zelenko and Dr. Buttar about doctor hit lists but unfortunately they are no longer around to respond!!

The problem with this is that it is not a scientific poll. It is limited to Steve's readers, limited further by those willing to reply. Not that it won't glean data, but you can't derive meaningful statistics from it. A REAL, random poll, will have to be done to learn the true percentages.

It is my opinion that One might assume considering the government's position in the last 3 years and their actions indicates that they have wilfully ignored their own data and data from esteemed specialists and doctors from around the world to further their own narrative or to save face by admitting fault

Let's point out the obvious, here, too, in saying that the chances of pre-vaccination diagnoses of autism are likely extremely rare (certainly not 18%) given that the vaccine schedule suggests vaccines as young >3 months old, and the vast majority of them >18 months; well before signs of autism would be really prevalent.

Given the awareness of a vaccine-autism link, even to those who don't believe it, and the age of the patient, it seems much more likely that autism diagnoses would be detected post-vaccination.

It seems preposterous to think that more patients were diagnosed autistic pre-vaccination, or that parent pollsters recall as much, than patients diagnosed post-vaccination, or where a pollster is unsure of the timing.

'diversion hydra kg' is an anagram of David Henry Gorski, his full name. He is one of the diversionary tacticians of the many headed snake, the hydra.

He has always been corrupt and is certainly not interested in the truth. He is like Wormtongue in the Lord of the Rings.

However because he is so bad he makes people look into the truth of a matter, so helps in the perverse way such things and people do. The wise become wiser, the foolish become terminally dim and their lights go out for ever.

I had a bit of experience with the psychiatric field back in the 1960s...and got a picture where it was coming from. It was totally money-oriented. When I called to tell the psychiatrist that I no longer was going to see him...he got hysterical. He called my husband and told him..."Give her more medication as she is having an episode." My mother was a very educated woman and I took her on one of my visits to meet him. She said that it was a waste of money going to him. I really had nothing much of interest to tell him. My major problem was lack of money. He would never say a word and let me ramble for 50 minutes. I saw he was glancing at his watch quite frequently..and right on the button "Time is up!" If I were in the middle of a sentence the man would cut me short and say we will discuss it next time. What a racket! Prescription drugs to keep people coming back and no real discussion. This is what I got from the psychiatrist. The psychologist was different and I enjoyed conversing with him. The whole psychiatric industry is a shame, because drugs are not a solution...they are a major problem.

UnExpertsOnc Thanks...I wrote this info because I had a bit of experience with both psychologists and psychiatrists. I published a book in 1995 with a chapter entitled Mental or Malnourished? it dealt with my experiences dealing with the psychiatric field, which is totally drug oriented (and ingnorant about how the human brain works). When money is in the picture, truth goes out the window. It has a cash cow and is milking it for all its worth.

Implicitly, I trust you. But in the same breath, I have to consider the possibility that you had the poll manipulated. Why? because I have to do that to everything. Do I think you did it? no. But in the modern dance, it cannot be discounted. To get noticed, you have to make something noticeable..

Back in the 1960s, I had a problem...and it stemmed from living with a violent dictator who told me what time to get up, what time to go to bed, how to dress, how to cook, how to vote, etc. He was a totla control freak.. He gave me no money for myself, but loved paying to have me see a pyschologist and then a psychiatrist. It was a case of "Look at me I am fine, I don't go to a shrink, but my wife does." I went to a psychologist for 15 months and he dismissed me...and said that I was fine. "Now let's get your husband in here." However, my husband refused to go. Then he sent me to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist I went to prescribed lithium, which my husband wanted me to take. I was very upset, because he was paying the psychiatrist weekly, but gave me absolutely no money for myself. This wimp of a psychiatrist later on started a group, which was cheaper...and he wanted everyone to sit around every week extolling on the virtues of lithium. I told the peope there...it made me feel like I was pregnant all the time. I also wrote a paper entitled Living Up to One's Highest Potential...and gave it to another person in the group...and the man disappeared and never came back. I stayed in a loveless marriage for 21 miserable years....then I walked and told him to keep the house and everything. All I wanted was my freedom. Life is all about learning...and I have no regrets, because I learned a great deal about survival and many other things from sticking it out. The truth is - we are here to learn and to grow. Everything we go through is a learning situation. My marriage was destined...the day I met my husband - I told my sister and a friend that tonight I was going to meet 'someone"...and I met him. I guess I had a lot to learn. The major lesson that I got out of this marriage..was the skill of organization. I heard it a thousand times..."There's a place for everything and everything has a place." This was something I did need to learn.

Hmm.. Steve, your initial picture shows 312 votes (23 hrs left, seems like the very start), but then the "gamed" one is much later (12 hrs left) and with 1303 votes.

Is it completely honest to claim the trend at 312 votes? It could be that the first batch of voters were the ones mostly impacted by the issue at hand (or adamantly thought they were impacted) and they rushed in, but then more folks joined in and leveled things up?

Not denying that the survey could have been gamed, but that's not the only option IMHO.

It was a funny story....and this was the way it was handled in the past, when I was growing up.

No drugs. Parents handled the situation with their corrective methods. There have been hundreds of new psychiatric conditions invented to keep psychiatrists busy and their income steady. Prescriptions for drugs bring clients back, but don't doctors know how toxic these prescriptions for drugs are and what they do to the brain? Drugs , legal and illegal, wipe out the brain. Those who take these legal drugs lessen their mind's ability to solve problems. I saw what legal drugs did to my mother...she went to the level of a two year old, then nothing... She was a well educated teacher with A master's Degree. Recently I read that legal drugs are harming more people than illegal ones.
