Being also on Sailfish forums, receiving all their emailings, I perfectly know this is untrue.
I myself went on, after my earlier post, to announce this poll on the Sailfish forum.
And as you can search within it by keyword, entering ‘Fairphone’ you can check this : I was the first one to talk about it.
The 68% vote favoring Sailfish is spontaneous. If anything, this % has lowered a bit since my announcement to Sailfish -I doubt more than a couple of Sailfish guys will have taken the hassle to register here indeed.
A wiser comment would have been to stress the very large number of redundant options, which indeed sometime has been a way to drown some parties by splitting them into various alternatives. I don’t know if this would apply here.
But I notice that even gathering all others vs Sailfish, the very large majority of us here favours Sailfish, and by really far.
Negating this through some campaign theory is, well, just a way of negating evidence…
If the Fairphone company is really checking this vote to help deciding onto a potential optional alternative, they know which one to choose.
