In my SOH options I opted not to receive political polls, but they still show up. Anyone know why?

What do you mean? All polls are political polls now.

"Paper or plastic?" .....

As far as I'm aware, the poll category choices work *only* on SOH-made polls. User polls have never been categorized.

Are you getting SOH political polls, user-made political polls, or both?

Because that only blocks SOH political polls, not user ones.

If you take your device and throw it out the window you will no longer have this problem. It is a bit expensive though.

I'm not positive, but I would guess that there's an algorithm that guesses which polls are political based on keywords, and it's not "smart" enough to filter out everything with a political subject.

Yeh you should just block the people who make political polls then.

So when you see someone like me, who posts 90% political polls should just block us. Most people won't be offended...

I have no idea. Pick a color to vote on all political polls, vote, move on to the next poll without reading comments.

It is faster than doing the Mark As Read option.

You can't block polls from other users.

I have the same question as Susan, but there's also a chance that the SOH polls in question are categorized in something other than just the one you have deselected.
