Quite often I use Gag as an informal poll on issues that I and my friends can't agree on. We even bet on who will get the most support here.
Any examples you can mention from your questions? OK to be anonymous here!

I don't really use GAG as a resolution, but I do sometimes use GAG as a reference. "A lot of people apparently think _______." It doesn't end a disagreement, it usually just gives a "Hmm, that's interesting" moment. I have asked questions to show other GAG users what others think before, like my question "Coping by way of booze is a good thing?"1
