I skipped the question.


I didnt like how it was worded either but I didnt think of skipping it because I assumed it wouldnt let you finish without them all being checked one way or another.
Figured the rest were pretty straight forwardly written enough that I wasnt going to dwell on the subtleties of that one and just voted against a full on ban.

Awesome!

Everyone remember that one time we all hit a poll and it totally made a difference?

Me neither.

Hitting internet polls is masturbatory at best and puts advertising 'view' dollars in the pockets of media mavens who hate us at worst.

Click bait for the really foolish.

I'll pass.

A poll is not a contest.

An opinion poll on the internet is an unscientific, bullshit, useless thing. There are so many polls, you can't even pretend that showing strength for your position will move low information people to the 'well, if that's what everyone thinks' mindset. Its just jerking off with a mouse.

Internet polls are not going to change hearts and minds. Positive interactions and range trips for newbs will.

But carry on, go ahead. Let me know when there is a result we can measure.

Wow, we made a huge difference in the poll results. Look at the volume spike today. Like 4 times higher than previous days.
