let's ban polls
« on: 22. October 2012, 10:35:06 »
the irony of it all
If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this. So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Clean the [censored] car.

For extra irony you could've added the option to vote that you don't want to vote.

Why should we remove the poll option?

Really, i can't follow you.

Is this a joke? Polls are just guidelines. I create some polls in our blog too. It help's us to get some feedback from our community. Example: I did a kernel poll and almost everybody voted for linux36. Guess what: We will release 0.8.2 with linux34 since that is the only way all developers can run their systems.

So: why do you dislike polls?

yes i do dislike most polls on forums as they tend to take the form of:

What's your favorite fruit ?

a) apple
b) banana
c) none of the above...

Did i believe they should be banned ?

a) no
b) i was being hyperbolic
c) hey, it's your forum, dude
d) as long as the forum does not become as strident as archforums, i do not care
e) yes, i was joking
f) all of above.
