    Well, this poll has been up for a matter of minutes and the poll troll has already screwed it up.

    Seriously, this is why we can't have nice things.

    Until this issue is fixed I choose to not participate in polls (in the Polls Forum). I will still participate in the discussions.

    Knowing, of course, that my definition of 'broken' is different than that of those who own and/or maintain the site, so I may never participate in a poll in this forum again.

    I think we're all pretty much unanimously in agreement with you that it's highly annoying, I've heard it from multiple people now. My understanding though is the site admin can't really do much about it?

    It is my understanding that they have it set up this way on purpose, as it attracts new members. I can't say if that actually happens that way or not, however.

    Being accused of a racist is only terrible when you are an actual racist, because if you are not a racist you have nothing to worry about, haters going to hate so to speak.

    Anyway, the accusers can always be shown to be liars by the truth and that is only possible if you are not an actual racist.

    I just don't understand how any intelligent person would think that would advance their position. I remember some years ago on another forum there was a poll asking people who they will vote for in the race for governor. An activist(s) stuffed the ballot and his guy was ahead but almost 1000 votes in a forum there gets about 100 votes in a compelling poll. His guy lost by a landslide and his supporter actually did nothing but humiliate and embarrass the candidate on a forum that was being monitored by the local media.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
