I tend to answer every question posed on here but I just came across one I refused because of bias and no real choice between the answers. Have you ever had your boundaries tested as such on here?

I just don't answer them. If it happens too often with the same person, I will stop following them.

I will answer every question except the ones where someone(skar) strings together a bunch of words that don't go together along with answers that mean nothing. Those get down rated and passed up

I have a two strikes policy. If someone is being intentionally manipulative and forcing "agreement" with him/her, I'll let the first one slide. The second time, I down-rate the question and unfollow the user.

Any chance in 3.0 we will be able to remove a poll from our feed in cases like this or when it doesn't apply to you?

Like a swift swipe off the feed

If it's shared I can't get rid of it, though. And I like the user them self.

All the time. Sometimes because the answers are obnoxiously identical or equivalent, & biased (as opposed to being humorously identical, which doesn't bother me). Sometimes because the answer I really want (usually "no") is, instead, something

insulting to me ("I'm a loser") or to the author ("You're crazy"), or makes it look as if I don't know what they're talking about, instead of just not agreeing with them ("Huh?" "What?"). I usually end up voting although I may wait a day. Sometimes

I comment, although usually not about the really biased ones, & ask them to please NOT make me call myself or them stupid. Usually if people respond at all they just say they were trying to think of "clever" answers instead of "yes" and "no."

Sometimes they get defensive, which makes me think *I've* done the silly thing, & I feel like a bad person, & try not to make comments like that for a while.

For the worst of the biased ones, I down-rate the poll, but not others.

Yes, sometimes I skip the question, sometimes I down rate it and move one, and once or twice I have stopped in to give them a piece of my mind.

Always.. But it's cool to see my ideal put to the test, and even cool if I am proved wrong, mostly I like when someone comments and I say, wow I never thought of it that way

With me, gets down rated no answer, 2nd offense you get unfollowed on 3rd offense if I see comments trend continue's then I block the user.

Many times. And it's happening more frequently. I don't follow someone or unfollow someone and then I see their poll shared. Can't win.

If it happens frequently, I will unfollow. I have one person near that point.

I'm gonna guess I know the one you're talking about and I finally succumbed to SoH OCD. I feel so dirty.
