Feeling moody - results for the week

HAPPY - AMUSED - ANGRY - SAD - SHOCKED - ENTERTAINED - THRILLED - WORRIED - INSPIRED
Some people tell us they love our Mood Meter, some tell us they hate it.
They write to say it's not clear. After all, how do we know what side people are for or against? Yes we tell them we know people could be voting for either side of the argument, but the idea is to give people a method of feedback. It is not scientific, it is used as a tool for interaction and it allows our readers to tell us, and others, how they feel, not for what side they are on.
Yes, we can pull stats from the stories of how people voted so I hope you're in a good mood to read about moods.
In the last seven days the story that people said made them the happiest was "The Swan Whisperer". Out of 739 votes, 633 people said it made them Happy. It is sad to note, that today, Duchess passed away. It seems a lot of people were pulling for the swan who graced Polson Park.
Angry is a Mood button hit fairly often in our stories, and last week the story that made people the angriest was Cop ticketed for parking infraction. Out of 4239 votes, 2108 people said it made them angry. A word to the wise, if you park in a handicap stall you better have a tag because a badge does not give you carte blanche to park where you want.
The story that Shocked people the most was the same story that Worried people the most. With 76 out of 205 votes people were concerned about the 70 people taken to hospital from a BC pool.
Most people were Entertained with Dragon Lollipop in our Offbeat section, 169 viewers out of 205 say they were entertained by it.
There are also some skeptics out there and the story to garner the most Skeptical votes was Medical Grow-op up in smoke. Out of 617 votes, 278 people decided they were skeptical about the operation. It turns out -- the skeptics were wrong.
I hope this has put you in a good mood.
How will people vote next week? We'll let you know. Yes you can even have a Mood about this story:-)
