"Reader's Choice" article

This article is no more than fluff without some backup documentation. I would like to present the ranking of languages ("C", "PERL", "C++") to my programming students but it is meaningless without knowing how many votes each language got and how many votes were cast for languages in total.
For example if "C" beat "C++" by "only 59 votes" out of 1000 that is a far different expression than a spread of 59 votes out of 85. Cute comments aside this is an interesting article that could have been a lot more interesting.

Why doesn't Linux Journal make the full results of the survey available online? You could show how readers voted in each category beyond the top three and show how many votes there were.

I expected to ask the same question, but as you did it before ... ;)
