Poll: Should Tech PR Agents Vote For Their Clients in Polls?

One of the many philosophical questions that came up in this year’s fabulous Gnomedex conference was whether PR agents should vote for their clients in anonymous online polls or not. We argue that they should not due to conflict of interest, others argue that anyone should feel free to vote in such polls and tiny startups would be crazy not to rally all the support they can get.

Maybe it’s no big deal, but we think it’s an interesting question. What do you think? Let us know in the poll below, even if you work in PR yourself.
