Look what I found on „ciao.com“ while looking for credibilty ratings of an ebay pro-seller.

Now that’s what I call „political marketplace“. For those not literate in German, the image below is a screen capture from ciao.com, a website where people can leave their opinions on everything from white laces to, well, globalisation. The latter, of course, is only 68% recommended.

globalisation 68% recommended by commentators on ciao.com

I wonder if it wouldn’t be a good idea to demographically profile the membership of these fora to see whether these opinions are anywhere close to „representative“. While I suppose that would be too hard to implement, especially because of privacy concerns I guess in ciao.com’s strategic business outlook they already see themselves as a real competitor in the traditional polling market.

Will be interesting to see.
