By now, my friends, you must know that these “in” box polls have a certain randomness and statistical irrelevance to them.
But is that going to stop me? Oh no.
For your consideration, then, I give you the opaque sites. These numbers are not adjusted or processed in any way — as before, they are raw totals of the number of times the companies have been mentioned in email conversations.
And here’s the two, side-by-side:
Priceline is in blue, with 700 complaints; Hotwire is in red, with 852.
But interestingly, I don’t have any record of Priceline complaints before 2008, even though I’ve been storing emails in the cloud — where they can be irresponsibly queried — since 2004.
Hard to make a call on this one. But aren’t these numbers fun?
