With the sudden increase and return of fun polls, I thought it would be useful to add a fourth one.

Really.

Check it out, it is useful, especially if you have created a poll, intend to create a poll, or think that polling on SW is a valid use of the earth's resources.

Edit - It turns out that polliong isn't a word.

It is fitting that my vote caused an Internal Service Error.

This poll is completely invalid, because the last question's options should have been select at most 2 checkboxes, rather than radio buttons. And the first question needs a "none of the above option". Besides, there is too many speling and grammatical errors.

I find it ironic that the last answer on the last question has the most votes.

I dispute the validity of your comment about this poll's invalidity. Your comment about the need to check at most two check boxes is invalid. Radio buttons are the way to go. As always SpiderWeb polls function under the select the best answer, just like the SAT. What did you get on your SAT. Bet you can't beat my score of 720.

None of the above is a copout answer. It should never be included in a poll. Polls are about putting people in neat piles. I will never include none of the above because it gives people the chance to say, "I don't like your poll, you don't have good choices." Now answer the poll and zip it.

Alternative Grammar and spelling are to be used in polls at all times to add to clarity and perciseness. What is wrong with "speling" errors?

You are asleep.

Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.

So it goes.

I'll therefore assume you meant combined score, since quite a few SAT takers here could mutter something about beating a mere 720 on either section. I mean really, talk about AP tests or something. Or LSATs. SATs are so plebe.

But back to the topic. Yes, a 720 combined is an impressively low score, and if I had been as much of a sarcastic $$@ then as I am now, I would have tried for that. Imagine the effort being put into that test, and wasting a Saturday morning, just to pull off a crazy stunt like that.

Brava!

Why wasn't "none of the above" an option? Or Nethergate?

Don't you people realize that the poll was titled "Sanity Check" and he was simply playing with our minds?

You wouldn't believe how much I want to misquote this...

I find it an outrage that only three people think that Brian Wilson is a God!! Good Vibrations people!! GOOD VIBRATIONS! I also find it disgusting that the word "was" is used in the question. He stills tours!!

And, finally, your new name reminds me of a word that is decidely un-PC, and would no doubt cause scowls from ceratin quarters.

Edit:

This is a nonsense poll. There are other (locked) nonsense polls in this forum that can be drawn upon for any data this experiment is meant to produce. Even this one now has 34 votes, which is enough for a good sample.

But guess what! I don't stand up well to pressure, especially not when I end up being stalked in an online game.

So for the sake of shutting you the hell up, Salmon, this is once again open. You win. Congratulations.

Well, we've had an 18 hour sample so far. I would like to see what happens from those SWers which only visit every few days. Perhaps Saturday I can analyze the results and post them up. So far it looks promising, with quite a bit of useful data.

And again, thanks for re-opening this poll and allowing me to collect this data. It will help validate future, and past, polls.

Salmon, you've confined us to your twisted world or radio bunttonless boxes by having to pick in option to be in some kind of box in the last question. Incidentally I didn't pick the objectionable box.
