I may be too late, so you don't have to pay attention to this if I am. My only regret is that I couldn't vote for Prudential.

These comparisons blow. Why would you compare Atlanta's BoA to the BoC in Hong Kong? Some of these comparisons are lame.

Okay.

1 - Just don't vote at all.

2 - Read the first and sixth posts of the thread very clearly.

3 - I didn't make the comparisons, reality did. (See Emporis.com)

Besides, if I were to make the comparisons myself and come up with the perfect combinations, there is always going to be someone that will disagree with it. I don't exactly have time to draw out of hat, maybe I should've asked you?

1. Don't tell me where to and not to vote.

2. I read it, and obviously I still have an opinion.

3. Yes, reality made the comparisons. They were just to be.

1.He's not telling you not to vote he's telling you that you don't have to if you don't want to.

2 & 3. Yes reality did make the comparasons, the fact that someones complaining about such as obvious way of doing it demonstrates exactly why he avoided setting up the matchs himself.
