The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing Kris to activate the polls option on the board.

Personally, I have a few complaints about polls.

- They don't say *anything*. Is there any inherent value in knowing which fighter is most popular? ("Oh, boy! People like the Rapier! I was wrong all this time!"). Furthermore, they're incredibly freaking predictable: the most popular ship will always be the best one from the game... the most popular game will always be the one that sold the most copies... and the most popular character will always be the main character.

- They detract from debates. Having a "Was Tolwyn right?" thread with a "YES OR NO" option means that no matter how intelligent your argument is you can be overruled by a bunch of teenagers and a radio-button.

- They're *predictable*. We've all done the 'favorite fighter', 'favorite game' and 'favorite chick' thing over and over and over and over and over. Maybe we could get some original polls?
