You've found the EastBayRag vote page. Here, you get the opportunity to let us know what you think. Each week, we will have votes on important issues. Well, probably not important issues, more like trivial things that come to mind on a Sunday morning after a belly full of beer from a Saturday night.

This week's current vote is shown above. After the votes are in, EBR will provide in depth analysis of the results so you can find out if you are running with the crowd or if you're out there on your own. You never know, you may even learn something, but that's highly unlikely. Analysis of last week's vote is shown below. If you want to see historic votes, checkout the vote archives.

Oh! And the cool thing before I forget, the graphs update as you vote ...... Wow! And what's more, the colors are allocated randomly, so each time you refresh the page, you will see different colors on the graphs. (F5 is normally the shortcut key to refresh, but may depend on your browser.) Go on .... try it.

Analysis of Last Week's Vote

The following question was presented:

An educational question, how dare he I hear you say. At the end of the last vote analysis I ended with a rhetorical question. Put a question mark at the end of it, deleted it for a period, then changed the period back to a question mark. I wasn't really sure how to punctuate it. How should a rhetorical question be punctuated?

Results:

Question mark was the clear winner with 100% of the votes selected from the following:

  • Question mark (100%)
  • Period (0%)
  • Exclamation mark (0%)
  • Hash (0%)
  • Ampersand (0%)
  • Eggplant emoji (0%)
  • Poo emoji (0%)

Analysis:

Doesn't look like anyone voted, so I'm assuming you don't know. It's apparently up to the writer how they want to punctuate a rhetorical question. Normally it is done with either a period, question mark or exclamation mark.
