This was the most controversial poll yet. I received several e-mails from people and some hacked write-in CGI votes.
They fell into four categories:
- "Is this some sort of joke?" - Well, uh... yes.
- "Er. Australia isn't in Europe." - Well, uh... yes.
- "How dare you! I'm Australian, and I'm insulted that you imply we're so obscure that nobody knows where we are!" -
Well, uh... I'm Australian too, actually.
- "How dare you! I'm American and I'm insulted that you imply we're too ignorant to know where Australia is!" -
Well, uh... I didn't say anything about Americans. I'm amused that you would jump to that conclusion, though.
