I have fun with it...but it should only be for ppl that want to be involved, which is why I refuse to share polls for it.

The debates involve actual facts and evidence vs "well if I think it, it must be right" bullshit that plagues SoH.

Not a fan, but not opposed to it either. I am rapidly becoming not a fan of having to see polls with such limited appeal routinely shared though. It's a fine thing for those who are interested, but shouldn't be shared beyond the sphere of interest.
