A Poll About Polls?

Do you think there is any point in a poll asking people thier preference when many if not most of the respondents have not expierenced all the choices? For example: "What is your favorite cheese?" A : Cheddar B : Pule C : Epoisses D : Halloumi

  • A : Ab abusu ad usum non valet consequentia.
    14% (1)0% (0)10% (1)Vote
  • B : Barba non facit philosophum.
    14% (1)33% (1)20% (2)Vote
  • C : Condemnant quod non intellegunt.
    43% (3)33% (1)40% (4)Vote
  • D : De gustibus non est disputandum.
    29% (2)34% (1)30% (3)Vote

  • Just out of curiosity why did you type the options in a different language?

    I mean obviously you speak English because you asked the question and out the details in English I'm just wondering why? Because you do know that they have other versions of GAG in other languages right?

    And my favorite is Munster cheese.

    • I was trying to make a funny point about the pointlessness of some kinds of polls, how people don't really know what they are answering because they aren't familiar with all the possible responses. So far the most popular response is "Condemnant quod non intellegunt" or "they condemn what they don't understand" which indicates most people got the joke.

  • Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra? quam diu etiam furor iste tuus nos eludet? quem ad finem sese effrenata iactabit audacia? Nihilne te nocturnum praesidium Palati, nihil urbis vigiliae, nihil timor populi, nihil concursus bonorum omnium, nihil hic munitissimus habendi senatus locus, nihil horum ora voltusque moverunt? Patere tua consilia non sentis, constrictam iam horum omnium scientia teneri coniurationem tuam non vides? Quid proxima, quid superiore nocte egeris, ubi fueris, quos convocaveris, quid consilii ceperis, quem nostrum ignorare arbitraris? [2] O tempora, o mores! Senatus haec intellegit.

    • Your response indicates that all polls, even well constructed ones are equally valueless because "there is no accounting for taste".
