Visitor Poll Added To Moderately-Thinking

Moderately Thinking would like to thank all our readers; especially those who have taken the time to give their feedback to the publisher or further the discussion by leaving appropriate comments. So far readership has been far greater than initially expected.

A new poll feature has just been added. Final result and new polls will be posted every couple weeks.

These polls will be non-scientific, but will hope to serve as further point with which stimulate conversation on given topics.

Please cast your vote on the first poll:
The "Liquid Bomb" Plot: Overhyped or Underreported?
Barring any major revelations, this first poll will close sometime around September 1.

I voted under reported. Mostly because I think it was NOT over hyped. If it had been successful, by god would that have messed sht up.

I don't think enough info is out about it yet.

1) If the perps didn't have passports - Overhyped.

2) If the liquid Bomb is as difficult to build as advertised - Overhyped.

3) If the charges stick, and the perps go down - Underreported.

4) If the Pakistani connection and the ensuing investigation turn up more perps - Undereported.

Having read a little on the chemistry of the intended bomb, we had little to fear. Besides, creating high-yield explosives of any kind tends to be very dangerous. When any appreciable amount accumulates, it tends to explode very quickly. On an airplane, where conditions are far from ideal, detonation would occur before enough of the explosive was created to damage the plane enough to crash.
