Are you sick of taking polls?

I am trying to get a feel about your feel about polls. I personally am sick or them.

by the way, this is tongue in cheek, in case it wasn't clear.

Whats wrong with polls? I check them every chance I get and I always rush in with my response. Does that make me a turkey?

There was a thread discussing this subject a few weeks ago.
Maybe we should make it a monthly thing.

I don't vote in the polls, if the subject of the thread interests me I might participate and post but not vote.

The thing I hate about polls is the dumbasses who come up with them. They think it's a good idea to have a poll then forget to think about what options to include. Then you get the first ten posts in the thread telling the OP which options had been left out.

I think we need more polls to see if it is worthwhile to figure out how people around here feel about polls in general. Personally, I am not sure. I may need

Nope, I find some of them just as tongue in cheek as your poll.

This has me considering is I should post a poll asking if people think that the polls on polls are getting in the way of our regular forum activities.

Polls should be banned. Most of them assume facts not in evidence, and do not offer all or enough choices.

I think it needs to be done more often. Maybe very 14-20 days in case people change their minds.

Who polices the mods when they act like this? Is there a more mature moderator on the list to turn to?

Thank you

While I wholeheartedly agree that maturity is a fine concept, I do think that at times they can be, much like sharpness and pixel count and FF, somewhat overrated.

I suppose it is like drunks, as long as you are one of them, they are OK. Once you hang around with them while being sober, you come away with a different opinion.

I had a nice reply written about an hour ago, but my wifi cut out and it went lost. The general gist of it was that this thread isn't really a site matter anymore (if it even was originally), and can be continued in GT. Closed
