Global worming, aka Mr Squiggly with bias

Killjoy academics have struck. The worm, it seems, is positively undemocratic.

A case for banning the worm. I admit to being a bit of a worm addict. Watching the line creep across the screen puts some interest into televised election debates between party leaders. What they say is generally so irrelevant that something other than the words is needed to keep a sensible person interested. The Nine Network well knows it and has featured the worm — a continuous response tracking measure — for several debates now and Channel Seven joined in when Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott faced off last year with its own version.
