YES!!!!! YES!!!!! YES!!!!! As many times it is possible for me to vote until I finally fall asleep ;))
At the moment -- I've just voted -- it is 50%/50%! How come?
Besides, while reading the article, I've found the comment made by the Greyhound trainer Andy Lord, in which he says this is all he knows! Well, time to widen your horizons, Mr. Lord! How many of us throughout life have to face a change, sometimes bigger than we would like it to be, just because we lost a job, had to move some place else, the place we worked for went out of business, etc. etc. Why can't he? The way he puts it, he is just endorsing my opinion about him: so "less privileged" intelectually that he is not able to find anything different to do than being a tyrant to those dogs!
YES!!!! YES!!!! YES!!!!

Refresh the page AFTER you clear the browser Angie.

By "clear the browser' she means DELETE COOKIES AND HISTORY-not just cache! and that EACH TIME subsequently after voting, then go again!
And if you manage to click EXTREMELY FAST IN A SEQUENCE ON THAT BAR (like 'hammering" it) each voting round, you can actually watch it flashing while generating multiple vote counts at a time, usually around a dozen!
The number afterwards may show many more but thse weren't generated by you alone! ;-) the display summarizes that of all others too who've voted meantime!

On the ABC 7.30 Report Thursday 16 th July A former greyhound racing insider is lifting the lid on horrific animal cruelty and corruption in the sport, saying what he has witnessed shows the sport is incapable of cleaning itself up. Very interesting, also Warning Graphic Too.

Article about people trying to overturn the Ban.

Also check this site out,'Slow' Australian greyhounds being exported to Macau, China to go on 'death row'the Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce has turned a blind eye to it, It is sickening and deplorable, has been going on for ages. The Government's reluctance to act on industry and community concerns risks adverse welfare outcomes for exported greyhounds and threatens Australia's standing as a strong advocate for animal welfare.

WHEN did Australia ever have a standing as " a strong advocate for animal welfare" ??????huh???
For a long as I can remember we've been fighting like mad, petitioning etc against their ongoing horrific LIVE EXPORT policy! so, even if in other areas there may be more regard to animal welfare, that alone makes anything else null and void!

Taking on the industry, perhaps he might be the one to also bring about some changes to live exports... where before him they all failed.

Dear Animae

Thank you for your recent message about the Government’s decision to end greyhound racing in NSW.
The Report of the Special Commission of Inquiry into the Greyhound Racing Industry presented overwhelming evidence of systemic animal cruelty, including mass slaughter of greyhounds and live baiting. Faced with this evidence, we decided the only option available to us was to support the Commission’s recommendation and shut down the industry.

It has been truly encouraging to receive so many messages of support on this issue.
Your words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.

The Government’s focus is now on winding up the greyhound racing industry in an orderly manner over the next 12 months. We have concluded that this time frame provides the time necessary to help industry participants adapt, to find homes for as many greyhounds as possible and to ensure that the dogs are treated humanely.

Yours sincerely
MIKE BAIRD MP
Premier of NSW

500 more is a daily minimum for me. But I admit, it can best, if not only be reached on a touchpad, not by mouse. No finger could be as speedy on a mouse as hitting the pad in a sequence . My average is getting 12 numbers forward but I#ve also had 16, 18 or more and few occasions with 10 or rarely less than that, if my finger slips off .

Still, managing between 10 and even 20, rare occasions even more, ist still better than ONE gain with one go! IE is a pain in the butt to use it for this task, yet seems I've managed to push 50 more with one go there + 1 more in Chrome...bringing it to 24640 right afterwards (unless someone else helped at that time)

Here's how: right-click on the petition link at the top of this page, and in the pop-up menu, select "open a new window in Incognito Mode". Click "YES", then close the window, and repeat... and repeat, and repeat! :)

Still 50-50. Please inform all of your friends by any means at your disposal to end the greyhound racing. We have won before and we will win again. Thank you all dear friends for kindly forwarding this very important issue. An issue that we make a lot of noise about and will win for the sake of these beautiful greyhounds who subjected to unspeakable cruelty for selfish monetary gains.

Dear Neil, I have been doing the same. Some will call it "cheating" but I rather "cheat" than to see these wonderful creatures suffer. I am sure that all of our dear friends agree. We will win the fight for the voiceless. Now we are all their collective voice.

I have sent out a message to all of my contacts on here, plus emailed all of my friends and family with this link, Mostapha. We need so many more people to follow the Google Chrome instructions and click for all they're worth!! And "cheating"? No. It's called trying to SAVE LIVES of innocent animals! That's never "cheating". Glad to know you're doing this too, my friend. :) Hope everyone on here gets busy... you and I can only click so much! Hey everyone, get BUSY. ;) We will win... if all of us click all we can, that's a LOT of votes adding up!!

Ok... I've now taken the "YES" votes from 277592, up to 282000, over the past couple of hours or so. That's a LOT of clicking! In that time, no one else has been voting. Can as many ofyou as possible please take it from here for a while?? I can't do any more today... thanks for this petition and all of those you share, Animae! :)

Dear friends, while 4% in favvour of the YES vote is encouraging, you all know much more than I that it can quickly change. We must collectively try to click as many times as possible. I am fully cognizant of the fact that we may all not have the free time on hand but let us go the extra mile on this issue. If we do that, we can win.....actually our dear non-human friends will win.

Well, I sort of stopped relying on my maths with that-after it seemed to not work out too well erlier ;-)
my understanding is, we do the sum of both votes together and take 1% of that which then should be the required number of clicks in order to move the bar by 1%. leaves many thousand of clicks for sure!

Most credit goes to Animae, Angelika? Yeah, sure... it probably does, since I know she clicks a lot, and I'm such a slacker and all. :P I've only taken it from 311,015 up to 320,000 now... just today. I typically click a few to several thousand "YES" votes in a "session"... sorry I'm not doing better. Wish I could do a lot more, but with a full-time job, marriage, and all, I don't have a lot of time to devote to this on a daily basis... so, maybe the more devoted and prolific clickers can take it up to 330,000 now? C'mon people... get clicking!! ;) Glad to see the percentage of "NO" votes decreasing, as we're steadily gaining on them! :)

Here's a hint, to add to my Google Chrome tip: when you load up the voting page in an "Incognito" window, don't just click on the "YES" button once each time you load the page... I can click up to 8 rapid clicks on that blue button each time, and that does register as 8 "YES" votes!!! :D

So, Neil, if you did in fact help from the 318.700 on that AniMae left last, to 320.000 now, thank you!
You need to improve if all you can generate are 8 clicks with one go!
I was not a participant in that last round, otherwise it would have been more by now.
 

Neil L (87)
Saturday August 6, 2016, 6:49 pm
Huh, Angelika?? In case you missed it, I've been clicking THOUSANDS of "YES" votes in every "go", or "session"!! How does that equate to only "8"?? It's probably at least EIGHT THOUSAND, typically. That's quite a lot of time spent clicking, that I should be spending doing other things, but this is important to me. Sorry if it's not enough, but I'm doing what I realistically can! Unfortunately, I can't be online that long every day, because I have a full-time job, a wife and marriage, and many other things to do... but when I'm not working, I spend an hour or two racking up the "YES" votes by several thousand. No, I wasn't on here for a day or two, but I was responsible for a LOT of the votes that helped make up that 318,700... see my previous posts in this thread. I've shared my tips & tricks for voting here, so hopefully those who have more time than I do, can take up my apparent "slack" and bring the numbers up even higher! Get busy, people!! We need to really overpower those disgusting "No" voters!!! -_-

I am so thankful for people like Neil who have worked so long & hard to get the YES votes up to their current levels, & to AniMae, whose love for animals knows no bounds & for each and every person who voted YES, so that these dogs will no longer be abused, exploited & murdered for a very hideous so-called sport. Well done, everyone!

Hi Suzanne, thank you for your comment.
Neil has already explained he is unable to spend as much time as he would like on the votes due to his commitments which is very understandable, his efforts are greatly appreciated & i'm very glad he joined us on the 30th, hope he stays until this issue is resolved.

Angelika & i are ladies of leisure : ) so we have been able to spend many hours over the past 26 days slogging away at getting the votes up to where they are, we started with ;

I DID have some help there which is ongoing. :)
As we tip the scale in favor of YES more visibly, wouldn't it be nice if some MORE folks here would join in, now that it takes less to gain %-except for the idiot NO sayers who'll need MORE and more to proceed :-)

Where are the "big shots" who manage "perhaps 8000" a day?

We're racing as fast if not faster than those greyhounds! At this speed we should see 57% shortly, then just 3% more to reach the ''veto proof majority! :-)) and another 25 % to have the reversed result from where we started!

The red/s under the bed came crawling out again but only added about 40 votes over the past weeks- poor job, that's good :)
 

Angelika R (143)

I should add that I beleive I did have some generous background help for the latest near 1000 gains, at least part of the way. Guess who that was in all likelihood! ;)

Dear Friends - While we are comfortably ahead with the YES vote, we need to keep on clicking. As I have noted before, polls can change in a snap of a finger. They can be manipulated by the "big shots". We must never be complacent. One way or another, we will win the YES vote.
Thank you my dear friends for taking your time. It is a time worth taking for the greyhounds. They only have us as their voice. Thank you all for caring so much !!!
