TVR, in retribution it seems, has instituted its own poll regarding w00t, to wit:

W00t should be included in the next, the twelfth, edition of Merriam-Webster's.

0 If it is, I'll burn my copy.
0 Good Lord, I hope not.
0 Sure, why not?
0 W00t, w00t!

here's a hotlink should you actually care to vote.

-joe (it's in the free matter) friday

p.s. - the results seem to give a good indication of TVR's.. <ahem> slant.

Tell that to the boys at TVR, eta -- btw the motto over there is "A society is as lax as its language." You get the picture.

>Things are looking up.

I think we must be skewing their results. I wonder if this means that they'll soon shut down their poll?!
