Yeah, it's only a poll. Everything else you guys are suggesting is merely assumptions. Who's to say that the people who made death threats weren't prosecuted in some cases? That's the problem with polls, you can't really ask follow-up questions because it's all anonymized. You only get answers to the questions you decide ahead of time to put in the poll.

Thanks Anax. I missed the part about it being a poll and assumed instead that it was the real thing.
