Yes. I hate it. Some people are unable to make polls honestly. I recently did a poll about how good you are at returning calls. The choices were "Often", "never forget" and "other". Wth? Surely you'd think to put in the option "Bad at returning them" or "terrible"? My polls are always perfect. ;D
They shouldn't be banned, but I genuinely hate such polls. It is usually along the lines of "A: Women suck. B: Women suck. C: Women hate men and have no souls and also really, really suck." Those are what I run into when the topic you broached is in question.
And to be honest, I have no interest in wasting time on someone who is not open to a healthy debate, an exchange of views and facts, and other ideas. Showing such disregard and such obnoxiousness does not reflect well on them or their ability in balanced arguments.
I chose other out of spite. Though I agree, I generally refuse to answer any poll like that and usually point out the bias. Its rather annoying and doesn't really have any value or add any new information. Just validation. Though I suppose banning it would be wrong, you should never censor, but a bit of shaming should be in order.
Most choices in "intellectual" polls are so loaded with piggy-backed opinions that they almost never reflect an opinion that anyone with a functioning frontal cortex and half a wit would ever strongly agree with anyway.
I totally agree with you, man. There's lots of lame dirty tricks used by people who can't bear the thought of people disagreeing with them. Sometimes I think it shouldn't be GirlsAskGuys so much as TellMeI'mRight
