Obviously, people who listen to RadioNZ are very clever.

And although not addressed in their response, obviously all listeners understood that as an employee of electionz.com, Mr Lampp would gain advantage for his company if online voting for government elections was to be accepted. And nobody would have assumed that "electionz.com" was in any way an official part of government instead of a private commercial company.

To clarify, being an Electoral Officer is an official position in local body elections, and Mr Lampp has carried out this function for 23 elections this year. I'm not sure if the phrase "Electoral Officer" is a protected term, obviously RadioNZ don't think it is. Also, I'm not sure if he was an Electoral Officer in a personal capacity, or as a representative of Electionz.com; but I have difficulty imagining that it could be anything other than personal.

And when the interviewer questioned him with “.... electronic voting isn’t reliable and couldn’t be trusted for some time could it?" that was enough for the listeners to understand that despite his positive answers, there was still real industry concern.

Predictably, RadioNZ's Complaints Coordinator does not think that describing Warwick Lampp of Electionz.com as the "chief electoral officer at electionz.com" was misleading or even significant, in their broadcast of 9th October 2019 talking about voter turnout numbers.

There is a serious game of Cat Chess going on. The participants have been static for 20mins and aren't blinking.

I encourage you to read this - specific to NZ, but I suspect similar situations are occurnig the world over... pmcsa.ac.nz/2019/05/17/foulden

Just watched both John Wick 1 and 2 again. I am probably not the first one to say this, but I am sure that John Wick (and by extension Keanu Reeves) is this generation's Chuck Norris. We should start making "John Wick Facts" memes the same way that we had, and still have Chuck Norris facts. Stuff like "If #JohnWick has one bullet and you have 10 bullets, John Wick has more bullets than you."😀

Oh hai , are you trying to get in to the controversy a couple of days late?

@TheGibson and there was me thinking you'd broken something at your end, Chrome just errors with ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR instead of displaying the Sophos text.

I'll see if I can report a false positive ...

PSA for schools: Google is not your friend. Google does not want to help you learn. Google collects data on your students and they have no option to opt-out. You sign contracts on their behalf that sign their data away to massive companies who have no accountability. Attending public school is not a choice, and you should not force students to use spyware without their explicit consent. You should not base entire classes on proprietary spyware.

OK this is neat: accentual.com/bmc64/
