What makes you downvote a poll?
Biased polls, spam, or highly rude.
Bias or false dichotomy.
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.
When they are a statement, not a poll
If both answers are basically the same.
Biased polls, polls that target users unfairly, polls that are poorly written
I don't down vote polls.
Ridiculously biased polls, both answers the same, or utterly incomprehensible polls.
Biased polls, Single answer choices, A question that I can’t understand, etc.
Utterly biased 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.
If it’s from that guy that only writes the first letter of each word
Yeah I just put him on ignore. Only user on all of SOH I've ignored. But trust me, totally worth it.
Seriously what is up with that?
Biased question or answer choices, duplicate answer choices, answers that imply acceptance of a false premise, mean-spirited question or answer choices, etc.
The writer acts like an ass.
“Is Chinese and Japanese people the same?” Yes-Also Yes
Hahahahahahahah. I lol’d. I’d upvote the shit out of that
I don't ever downvote or upvote a poll.
Either the answers are biased, or it's a VC poll with too many upvotes.
A poll forcing an unpleasant choice.
Artie ... that’s mean every one of your polls would qualify for a down vote ...
Sorry, Artie....once in a great while, 'ol Think tickles my funnybone :D
Glad to be of service, Phaly!
Mine too phalnx! 😅
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
I like mass shootings
Or the images where one conveys one biased view and the other backs the same biased view
I never downvote polls I don't understand the point.
You are rated on your up/down ratio.
Correct, nothing good comes from your honest opinion.
I don’t downvote polls.
Though, I did downvote maybe once or twice when I first started.
If it's a statement or biased question with one answer
Yes. I basically answered the same.
If it's biased and/or stupid.
Poll biased or leaves no alternative answer options.
Example: is that moron Trump truly an idiot or just ignorant?
An obvious beyond biase poll, that gives no room for individual insight.....no true selection and choice.....
A boring long winded poll.
