  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    I submit my queries on Ask Slashdot and rely on the moderators lazyness.

    I am a luddite sometimes. Sometimes doing things the old-fashioned way is faster. I cut my teeth in school doing research in the library using its card catalog before it bought some awful online thing that ran on a PDP 11/45. Mercifully, they replaced it with something far more modern. And there were times when flipping through the cards was faster than using the computer. Then there is wandering through the stacks. Sometimes you don't know what you're looking for until you stumble upon it. If you didn't already know this, books are shelved according to subject. Books on similar or closely-related topics are going to be shelved close to each other.

    If you cut your teeth or gums you obviously were using the cards incorrectly. No wonder they switched to computers...

    That would require an area of Post-Its equivalent to a square over 250 foot on a side. I assume you multi-layer?

    I find it useful to post something like "hey, Linux is so stupid, it can't even X", where "X" is something I've been unsuccessfully trying to do.

    I almost always get instantaneous results. The replies not only tell me how much of an idiot I am for not knowing it, but they also include detailed instructions on how to accomplish "X". Much faster than using a search engine.

    Linux is so stupid, it can't even get me a date with Emilia Clarke.
