    “40% f comments received by The ExpressTribune online are trashed” Off course you don’t want to publish bad things about yourself. Come one, delete this one too ;)

    I think you guys should also appreciate misbah for achieving the highest runs in ODI Calendar, rather than telling his weaknesses.

    Lol. interesting Numbers – hope this comment doesn’t make it to the trash. 40% is pretty high percentage.

    40 percent are trashed because ET only wants to give a single point of view

    Why so much difference between American think tank PEW’s and Tribune’s survey?

    11.5 Million people in Pakistan likes Justin Biber but we have our own Justin Biber in name of “Bilwal Bhutto”

    Typical of ET..the correct number to quote for Misbah is 1,373 ODI runs in a calendar year. The most for any batsman in the world. Cant believe someone gets paid to write these.

    Try to read it correctly. 11.4 million is the total number of Pakistani’s on Facebook, only 1 million like him.

    Really hate these people who don’t appreciate what Misbah did for Pakistan. Being Pakistani they will always try to highlight a weakness in others instead of strengths! Misbah did very well for Pakistan and he is our no.1 batsman.

    Its interesting how all the comments focus on trivial things like JB and cricket. I’m glad the country’s view on suicide bombing has changed… and 440,000 tonnes of trash a year!! We need to recycle more in 2014, and maybe avoid busy roads during the day.

    As for the Misbah-ul-Haq stat, its disappointing that you picked that one. I’d have liked to see the following:

    Number of runs Misbah-ul-Haq scored this year in one-day internationals. The highest by any cricketer in the world.

    Number of 50s he scored this year. A new world record.

    We should give the credit where its due. Really!

    The chart showing the ratio of Indian comments on Express Tribune speaks for itself

    The View on Saudi Arabia was interesting……….I would go with the ET figure because a lot of the everyday guys on the road also have the same negative view of the KSA.

    I imagine the difference is because the PEW poll was scientifically conducted using statistical sampling which is representative while ET poll was probably an electronic poll which covers only computer savvy Pakistanis.Recommend

    @Sharjeel There was ways you can word a question to get a specific answer… Same Questions with different use of words can give diff answers…

    40% of online comments trashed at ET is far better than % of comments trashed at Dawn (maybe near 90%) which can easily be seen by the very small number of comments allowed by the moderator(s) on any subject in Dawn!

    Each and every part of this news was AGAINST Pakistan.
