Yesterday we published a post describing a petition that had been started by San Francisco resident Juraj Martanovic that opposes the Golden State Warriors building a waterfront arena on Piers 30-32. The petition needs 4,890 signatures and at the time of posting had 110. (It now has 140.) We created a poll asking a simple question: Should the Warriors build an arena on Piers 30-32? 360 of you — the majority — voted Yes. While we were a bit surprised by the amount of folks who voted No (271), we quickly realized the results could be extremely skewed. A tipster forwarded us an email from the Save the San Francisco Waterfront group, which said:

This article is creating a deception that most of people like to have Warriors arena there, we should all take a second and click NO to show them the truth. BTW you can vote multiple times if you have few different browsers.?? http://sf.curbed.com/archives/2012/10/23/petition_started_to_oppose

??Lets show them how wrong they are!!

Yes, show us how wrong we are by encouraging a small, select group of people to vote multiple times using different browsers. Keep it classy, Save the San Francisco Waterfront group.
