There’s a general election in Germany in September, and German social networking website Xing thought it’d be a good idea for members/supporters of political parties to create an account and say who they support. Unfortunately they missed out the Pirate Party, so 90% of the people who logged on had to say they supported “others”.
Here’s a graph:
Xing’s blog has an article on this, and most of the comments seem to be complaining about the lack of a Pirate Party option, e.g:
Wo ist denn die Piratenpartei? = Where’s the Pirate Party then?
Ich vermisse die Piratenpartei. = I miss the Pirate Party
Ich will nicht “Sonstige” wählen, sondern ich will die PIRATEN wählen! = I don’t want to vote for “others”, I want to vote for PIRATES!
Xing have relented and say they’re going to add the Pirate Party as an option, but they’ve not done so yet.
