Warthog:

Oh hell no. Esther plugged herself in the Editor's column of her own newspaper. That's journalism 101 fail. She needs to go down. Can someone unleash the power of /b/?


GrymRpr: Voted for: Esther - Silver Spring, MD

Using FARK in this manner is unfair to Esther & Farkette Elizabeth should be ashamed.
And the the rest of you should also be ashamed... but, who am I kidding.


Oh noes! Esther is using her newspaper to get more votes! She should be ashamed of herself, using the newspaper readers to vote for her. It's unfair to Elizabeth!

Thanks to an email notice from Grable's Daughter, I watched BOTH videos and voted for Elizabeth. She deserves it.

Agreed, the other video was so pandering I couldn't make it all the way through.

I actually went way beyond your list.

And I don't even know her - just wanted to help a Farkette out.

I'm not going to vote for someone just because she's on Fark. And I'm also not going to support female pilots in general - not because women are incapable of being pilots, but because few are interested in being pilots, and it's silly to try to motivate them to become pilots if they're not trying for it themselves already. It just costs far more to staff the same number of positions with qualified women than with qualified men.

Equal opportunity does not mean advertise heavily to try to get women into traditionally male positions, or vice versa. It means give equally qualified applicants an equal chance. This may mean barring all but a tiny percent of women from being pilots, but so what? The object is to have the safest pilots for the least cost.

He must be new here. Poor little thing, he doesn't know any better. Don't hurt him.
 
2012-02-08 11:20:15 AM  
So, what happened? Who won?

I think that counting the youtube video hits is absolutely wrong. Each of them tried to make their case with their video. Therefore you would have to watch EACH video to decide who you wanted to vote for. Watching each video equals casting a vote for each one.

I don't get it.

2012-02-08 01:38:52 PM  
Hi Fark! I'm Elizabeth from the video. First, I apologize for not commenting sooner- as PaulMKelly posted earlier, I had no idea this made it on here. I found out late last night while I was trying to figure out where all the traffic had come from. Secondly, thank you to all who voted for me. I really appreciate it. It means a lot to me.

The winner of the contest was supposed to be announced today, but due to Fark leaving their poor overloaded servers in shambles, the winner will be announced on Friday. I will post the winner whenever it's announced.

Again, thank you for your support. It's amazing to see what an online community can do.

She appears to be a newspaper editor from Idaho. Idaho is not Florida. While the name Elizabeth is sufficiently unusual that I concede this is unlikely, they might be different people.
 
2012-02-08 02:08:49 PM  
I am not the newspaper editor from Idaho. I'm not sure why the post mentioned that I was a member- I do read the site from time to time, but never registered until last night. Elizabeth is a rather common name- it's not surprising that there may be another account with that name.

I'm sorry if folks somehow feel misled, but I did not create the headline nor did I know about it until last night.

It's all good. Subby outed himself earlier, and his account was created 2002-01-28 16:18:50. A friend of a farker is a friend of fark ^_^

Hmmmm, sounds almost like a philosophical question: is an unregistered lurking Farker/Farkette still considered a true Farker/Farkette? I vote yea!

Okie dokie.

Sorry for the confusion on my party - it said "Farkette Elizabeth" and I looked up that profile and just made the assumption that it was you.

I really hope you win this. At a minimum you need to send us pictures!

Well, except for Esther and her family and friends who supported her. Esther had a sizable lead yesterday before this big lie hit the Fark main page.

Esther was probably so excited that she was going to have the opportunity to do something really big for herself and women pilots in general. She was going to make history. Then she had it all stolen away from her.

I just hope Esther never hears about how she lost. I'm sure she would be crushed.

Not to mention the good and loyal Fark.com community who pulled together to help someone they thought was one of their own.

This is truly a very sad day.

It is. It's so very sad that only one of two women can win this popularity contest. And that one had the audacity to ask a friend, who happened to be a farker, to spread the word. And that once the word was spread, it caught like wild fire.

/Good luck Lizzy!
