Those stats don't represent anything.The average WOW player hardly reads upon WOWinsider or does fill in forum polls. Hardly a few 0.0X % of those Millions of players .Article is not representing a random sample of WOW players at all.

While I will agree that this poll doesn't represent the average WoW player, you can make a theory of what the WoW population did based on your findings as long as you don't present it to be fact. I am sure we all know how polls, sample sizes, and misleading polls are taken. To Mike I wanted to add something you forgot for the conclusions."At any rate, no matter what the numbers, we can make a few solid conclusions:"5. WoW.com readers cannot follow simple directions like, DON'T VOTE IF YOU DIDN'T USE THE SERVICE, to try and get the most accurate results.6. WoW.com readers could not wait patiently for a follow up post on the results of the polls and resulted to not voting and clicking vote for the results. Thankfully not screwing with the numbers, but obviously many of them weren't that smart and most likely just picked a random result to see the other results.I admit I was hoping this post would be sooner, but now it doesn't really matter because idiots messed with the results.
