Borda Count

How much do you trust popular websites to maintain your data and online privacy? In this week's poll you can rank them using the Borda Count voting method.

Instructions:
  1. In the box next to each item, put your choice of rank. The site you trust the most earns a "1", the site you trust just a bit less gets a "2", a site you trust even less gets a "3", etc. So "1" is the site you find most trustworthy.
  2. You don't have to rank all 8; you can just rank the ones you have an opinion about. But since there are only 8 choices, you can't input a number higher than that (ie, it's impossible to rank something 9th place in a contest with only 8 places).
  3. Simply be careful not to duplicate numbers!
    Have fun!

Reading the comments on Soylent shows there are a bunch of pissed off people who didn't understand the process and wonder if the thing wasn't rigged or stacked on purpose. I don't think it was unfair, just think they could have been a bit more clear in the instructions. Not good to have frustrated voters; it leads to unhappy, angry, violent people .
