PF polls never have enough choices. PF poll starters should anticipate the quirkiness of PF members. :biggrin:

Exactly dear Evo. PF poll starters are simply too daft for PF poll answerers. :rolleyes:

Oh, geez, I can't decide again! I love PF polls, they're lots of fun, but they're also usually crap. It's more fun giving the poll starter a hard time about not including every possible option. :biggrin:

I was going to choose the 3rd choice, but the poll creator made such terrible choices that I had to go with the 4th.

To clarify. Why did you add a second part to each option?

"I've NEVER seen one I didn't like!!"
"and I usually feel good about my answer"
"and I usually feel like, in hindsight, I picked the wrong answer"
"People should learn to write."

Many people may think that Pf polls are great, but now have to say that they have never seen one that they did not like.

Then the third one, why do I have to think that I chose the wrong answer if PF polls are a mixed bag? Are there correct answers to polls like these?

And for the last one, yes people should learn to write.

Maybe an other option should be added automatically to polls. And an undecided option. And indifferent. And all of the above. And possibly some more...

My opinion of polls is that they are not to be trusted. Notice that 31.48% of the people who answered this poll said they don't answer polls: :biggrin:

Inconceivable! They must be punished. But how? Flogging, whirligig, Christina Aguilera? Hmmm... I think we should take a poll. :approve:

Any GD poll should include:

1) Off topic options
2) insults to Smurf
3) At least one sheep joke that alludes to Wolram or Moonbear

Any poll should also include the following options with no explanation:

1) The Sisterhoods
2) Because Evo hurt herself again
3) Yomamma [never say more]
4) I'm afraid to answer because Chroot is around

Indifference is more akin to hate.

We torture the ones we love. :biggrin:

I like you Smurf...you remind me of a cat I used to have. He was fun to play with once in a while but he always went around clawing up the furniture....so that's pretty much like you except your much shorter and blue....and I expect you hate cat's...well I would too if I were only a few inches tall
