It will help to gauge the overall consensus. As of now, we have no real way of knowing which way the wind is blowing. All we have been able to establish is that there are intelligent, thoughtful people on each side of the question.
Many of us on different sides feel that"most" or “many” board members will agree with us. The purpose of a poll is to establish whether there is a majority in any category. Which is also why it’s important that all sides feel their opinions have been properly stated.
Personally, I think zombie references are stupid and it’s extremely rare that they’re funny. IOW not “fine”. But I don’t think they should be banned. I don’t think stupid and unfunny things should be banned. Too subjective.
But I don’t think you necessarily need two separate categories for this. I think “Zombie references should not be banned” can suffice as an option for everyone who thinks they shouldn’t be banned.
More to the point, there’s no forum where it can go (as I found out to my chagrin a few years back): all MB concerns must go here, so you can’t put it in IMHO say. But the only polls allowed here are test polls. [Yeah it’s a Barber Paradox kind of thing but what can you do]
Let’s try to restrict this second thread to the poll and not actually discuss the issue here. Comments like this area already being made in the other thread, so please continue any non-poll discussions in that thread and not this one.
Okay, it’s a running joke but those are going to develop in a message board over the years. Zombie jokes are just a means of conveying the message that a new post has revived an old thread. Which, as we have seen, people don’t always notice otherwise.
