But actually the majority of people on the poll have not agreed with you...
It is pretty split-- again, T-25 people who dominate this thread and really don't know a lot about Tech/CU/ U of State and how that hiring works are frequent posters and so it appears one-sided, but it isn't. Finally, for the 4 millionth time, this was a Manhattan to Ark hypo, talking about if ties were overstated when considering state schools. Rad admitted they were tie-breakers. First thing anyone hears is "ooh where are you "ties"?" This should be a far lesser consideration over "where do you want to live," which was the groupthink three years ago.
"ties" in this context are overstated, bromulus.
The way you are reading the poll is bizarre. Only 19 people agree with you. 68 people said they're not overstated or had the good sense to admit that they don't know.[/quote]
Read the poll again.[/quote]
Huh? Here are the results as of right now:
Yes-"ties" are an accurate, albeit recent discovery by TLS. [ 37 ]
No-"ties," along with 40% of everything on this site = mindless bullshit [ 19 ]
I don't know, but "ties" may be overstated [ 11 ]
I for realz don't know [ 21 ]
Yes, ties are important + I don't know + I don't know. 37 + 11 +21 = 68
No, ties are not important = 19[/quote]
Dude. 11 people said ties are overstated, 19 said ties were bullshit.
37 to 30, with 21 I dunno.
Pretty split, but the plurally of people in who voted did not agree with you, which is insane considering that "ties" are the first thing you and your kind vomit on every thread.
Ok this was the last fail for me. I'm going to go enjoy the weather, have at it.
