    Default EVERYBODY PLEASE VOTE: About.com Readers Choice

    About.com is having a Readers Poll on mens shaving and grooming stuff.
    Just FYI, thought some of you may like to vote for the classic shaving stuff.
    The Merkur HD is all alone, up against all the cartridge systems.

    Vote HERE

    Shockingly, my votes did not correlate with the leaders in any category.

    I don't think this matters at all to anyone, the choices are pretty arbitrary and probably marketing in itself.

    Voted anyway, nice to see a DE is actually an option. Is this a trend of more mainstream recognition?

    I voted on a few of those. The rest it is too bad there wasn't a "none of the above" choice.

    Yes, the Fusion marketing machine has overwhelmed the competition with a whopping 57 out of 117 votes.

    Certainly there are enough people here to stuff the ballot box for the Merkur to put it way over the top.

    Yes! Let's overpower the Gillette marketing machine and whilst doing so draw some attention to DE razors

    Focus is just distraction from distraction, so I take my moderation in moderation.

    Wow, the old B&B bump is kicking in and catching up.

    Just voted, 70 - 63 for the Merkur now!
    At very least it might get a few folks to realize that DE's are still used.

    Lousy choices. But I voted for AOS lavender, Merkur, and Nivea.

    Good work! Voted Merkur!
    It's really easy to believe someone when they tell you exactly what you want to hear.

    The Merkur now kicking the ProGlide's butt. We need to get everybody to vote.

    How hilarious would it be if the Merkur beat out the latest, greatest Gillette gizmo?

    We're killing 'em.

    If only they would notice that there exists a group of men who actually care about a shaving product that hasn't been foisted upon them.

    I mean, what kind of numbnuts would really care about his Fusion?
