I asked this question.

After seeing Mr Weiner's tweet about the question on reddit, I asked him to try asking it here to compare quality and response times.

Then I remember Jeff saying in a podcast or a blog post that a valid practice would be to ask on behalf of the person, and then present them with the answer, and that this is a great way to promote the network.

So that's what I did.

Let me know if it's not appropriate for this community.

    $\begingroup$ My personal opinion: It is an interesting question, but there are two problems in the current formulation: 1. I don't think that it is reasonable to assume that all mathematicians know what Gerrymandering is, so a short explanation would have been appropriate. 2. It is not clear how the perimeter of an electoral district should be defined, so that should be part of the question. $\endgroup$ – Phira May 12 '11 at 21:18

    $\begingroup$ Interesting, I actually didn't know: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerrymandering $\endgroup$ – Eric Naslund May 13 '11 at 1:23
