Thanks to everyone who took the poll! Click here to see the original post that relates to this poll.
Looks like there was a tie, most people voted either in the “No, I don’t think so” or “I didn’t know this stuff was happening” when asked if they thought there was an increase in theft from the archives.
I wonder if this can be attributed to the fact that theft from archives aren’t widely publicized because either archives try to minimize the damage by choosing not to broadcast that their security may be weak OR its not sensational enough for media sources.
I tend to think its a little bit of both.
Look for more polls in the future!
