I don't presume that I know your motives, Bullgrit. But then, I didn't stuff the ballot box, so it isn't me that's your problemIs this what you think this poll is? You brought up this idea twice.
We've seen the pattern before: There's a long contentious thread on a subject ("Grognard good... grognard bad", in this case). People disagree in that thread. Someone then goes and makes a poll about it. Historically, it has not been uncommon for folks to take the poll to be, "Well, rather than argue, let's prove who is right about this!"
I recall a few complaints about this, even - folks suggesting that we disallow polls on recent contentious topics, on the basis that it is trying to find evidence and authority to "win" an argument.
So, I wouldn't be surprised if someone did think that is what your poll is.
I haven't examined your polls to see if there's any pattern to your ordering. If there is a pattern (like, the options you personally have leaned towards tend to come first), I would again not be surprised if someone did come to that conclusion.Other people have suggested my polls have ulterior motives to make a point. I've even been accused of ordering the choices in a poll to get specific results.
