Do You Respond To Polls On The Forum?

Are the forum's polls an interesting curiosity, potentially helpful sample for understanding the forum denizens, a fun waste of time, or a complete waste of time which should result in an offending pollster being drop kicked through the gate posts of Hell?








Edit: got rid of the ironic parts of the poll that might be confusing/irrating to those who are irony deficient

Re: Do You Respond To Polls On The Forum?

gosh, you nailed me you rascal...I must be like an open book poll

I was going to wait a respectable amount of time - didn't want to cause poll fatigue....and am concerned if my ego will withstand being kicked by a substantial number of members (thankfully guests can't vote) screaming through the gates of hell....

Hmmmmm....

Is this not a stupid poll??

If someone never responds... they will not respond to THIS poll....

And if they repond to this poll as never, then they just lied...

I prefer the word silly....stupid makes it seems like I don't know what I'm doing...

Edit - I am now preparing for a flood of insensitive responses affirming that I realy am stupid and just haven't realized it yet...

Re: Do You Respond To Polls On The Forum?

Speaking of polls, I was called today and asked, "How likely are you to vote in the November elections?" I answered, "Extremely likely--I never miss an election." She then said the survey was over. I wonder where it would've gone if I'd said , "Uh, I dunno" or "I haven't decided who to vote for."

I never miss one either. I watch TV in the evening to see what the voters did, but I'm thinking of even skipping that much participation.

Yeah.
You probably shouldn't waste your time on this thread Texas. It's a silly and/or stupid way to spend your valuable time.
