Biased polls, spam, or highly rude.

Extreme bias, ugly language, or deliberately annoying.

Biased poll or a poll that holds you hostage with answer choices.

Basically everything that isn't a thought provoking question with two legitimate answers.

Total bias in the answers like “Yes” and “Absolutely” are my choices. I can’t vote no. Even then though, I usually forget to downvote.

Blatant bias or stupidity.

Things like using “we” to refer to a government, “allowed” used to mean “not prohibited,” or “revenue” to refer to tax receipts.

Ridiculously biased polls, both answers the same, or utterly incomprehensible polls.

Also I forgot to mention I don’t have patience for polls that present falsehoods as fact, especially ones where the answers both require an acceptance of a false premise. It’s a good day if I don’t see at least one poll like this in a day, people really aught to be doing better in the age of information.

I rarely downvote polls. The only reason I do, is if the question is difficult to understand.

Either the answers are biased, or it's a VC poll with too many upvotes.

Bias, grammatical errors, if the poll isn’t a question or the answers make no sense

Biased polls and polls with a single answer
Ex: Do you support gun control
Yes
I like mass shootings
Or the images where one conveys one biased view and the other backs the same biased view

You are rated on your up/down ratio.

Correct, nothing good comes from your honest opinion.
