A Biased and Useless Poll

I really don't want to be critical of AANR, I sincerely do want to praise them endlessly, but this new poll they published today on their blog is a complete farce. They are asking for your "primary source about nude recreation", and three out of the six choices are AANR vehicles! No mention of The Naturist Society, no mention of blogs except for the lumping of "media and other Internet sources" into one choice. There is no other purpose for this poll except to artificially inflate AANR's importance to itself, and its blatant dishonesty does a disservice to nudists and naturists everywhere.

UPDATE: AANR made the poll even more biased - now four out of seven choices are AANR vehicles.

It's much more likely that the purpose of the poll is to determine which of AANR's outlets are most effective or if they are effective at all in order to allocate resources effectively. If that's the case it makes sense to lump other categories together because they are all "not AANR".

The poll has disappeared for now, we'll see if it comes back in a revised form.

OK, the poll is back in a revised form - now four out of seven choices are AANR related.

AANR continues to live with its head in the sand...

Has any AANR members been made aware of all the clothing optional recreational choices available? No...

Ever heard of Burning Man? Of course you have.. did you realize those events take place all over the country by local Burning Man type peeps?... regionals.burningman.com

And most the events are clothing optional and the people are truely accepting and you can be comfortable to be nude.

Its an eye opening experience I tell ya... I hang with Burning Man people more and have more fun and have plenty of nude opportunities.

Yet, AANR doesn't share this stuff. Its obvious to me they think you have to be a card carrying "nudist" in their terms to have a say in nude recreation.

AANR is no help to the collective population and is devisive in the nude rec communities.

What's interesting is that the non-AANR choices got the most votes!
