I was wondering why polls have been disabled on this board. Concerns about bandwidth appear to be misplaced, considering that the old-fashioned alternative involves a myriad of individual posts. Furthermore, polls allow for the possibility of anonymous voting and regular threads are a poor replacement when it comes to deeply personal and potentially embarrassing questions. And let’s face it, those are really the most interesting kinds of questions.
I realize that the admins are otherwise busy and this is pretty far down the list of priorities. I simply ask that they please consider turning this feature back on, perhaps on a trial basis, should they ever find themselves with too much time on their hands and the inclination to poke away at the forum software. Thank you.
N.B. Rico graciously allowed a second thread on the subject.
