    Default Do you like polls?

    We've seen a few polls in the Frontroom recently. I like voting in polls, it makes a change from just typing stuff. So, this poll is to see how many people agree with me in the simple, efficient way only a poll could.
    At the end of the day politics is just trash compared to the Gospel.

    I like polls, I just don't like it when the thread is derailed by talking about the poll instead of the subject.

    Where is the Gah option? It is essential to any poll.

    Polls often don't provoke as much of a conversation as with regular threads, but I still like them.

    I believe in poll and non-poll equality, so I don't discriminate.

    A well-written poll on a sufficiently narrow topic can be interesting, but a poorly designed poll or one asking a loaded question is in my view deeply unhelpful. Parliament regulars may remember a certain poll a few months ago which was structured in such a way as to effectively permit only one response, then followed by strident claims by the member who created the poll that it had "proved" his point.

    In particular, I would argue that the inclusion of the "Gah!" option, while often construed as a frivolous option for those who simply like voting and don't care about the subject of the poll, is actually essential, since leaving it out effectively removes the ability to register a vote saying "I think the poll is poorly structured/asking a loaded question/asking a question that is too complicated for a multiple choice answer".

    I want to vote "Gah!" purely for the reason that I do not have the option to vote "Gah!".
