For Shira's Video Opinion Polls
Shira objects to video producers and on-screen artists who actively campaign to have their friends and students cast favorable votes on behalf of their videos. Such "campaigning" could consist of announcing to classes one's request to garner votes, or to publish a note on a web site asking people to go vote.
If Shira discovers that a video poll's results have been tampered with due to such campaigning by the dancer featured on it, she will remove the poll and post a message in its place stating the reason for its removal.
Producers are welcome to link to reviews from their web sites, and many do, but requests for favorable votes in the poll section should not be part of the text accompanying such links.
