Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Black Box Voting has been pumping information out about LHS for months, apparently and those posts have been picked-up by Google.  Their postings have been linked to by other websites which Google also picked-up.  The result: when you run a web search it's difficult (and time consuming) to get 'behind' the BBV information.

A Lexis/Nexus search - which I can't do - needs to be run, tho' I don't expect much to happen with that, either.

Irregardless of the statistical analysis preliminary evidence indicates LHS Associates and John Silvestro shouldn't be in charge of counting votes to elect the officers of the local Gardening Club.

I assume you filtered out those results with bbv, blackboxvoting and black in. (although that dosn't cut out those results that don't reference where they got their info from) and only cuts the number of searches down from 122,000 to 110,000

Yes.

More often than not, however, even tertiary sources link back to BBV.  A common trail is:

BBV <- BradBlog <- 3rd Source

so the search results need to be manually verified and qualified.  On a dial-up ISP that takes a while.

The 3rd Source is a serious problem as some of those Information Sources are not of the highest intellectual quality -- shall I say.  (The phrase "stark raving bonkers" leaps to mind.)
