An Austrian news magazine reports that 80 percent of all
participants voted for dropping the time switch, yet many voted
for always keeping summer time.  I have also participated, and it
must be said that these where leading questions in an alerting
way.  I had the impression that this was wanted, maybe even for
automated prefiltering, .. but then again, isn't that also
unthinkable.  I have been outvoted by many.  Commented i had that
children should not go to school in the dark, that i have seen
a real (non overexposed through human light pollution) night sky
only two times in my whole life, and the rest i have forgotten.
