  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Speaking of RSS readers, anyone got any suggestions for a replacement for the Google homepage (iGoogle) that they're dropping in November? It's the only RSS reader I've ever used, and I can't stand the interface of any other RSS reader I've ever seen. I don't want all my news in one feed, because some update monthly (or even less), some update twelve times an hour, some even update three times in one day then go silent for six months. So I want to see the latest updates from everything at a glance to know what's updating and what isn't. I've never seen any other RSS reader that will do always seems to be a choice between the latest stories from every feed all thrown together or only stories from one feed at a time. And I don't want to see just the number of updates on each feed, I want to see what those updates actually are so I know if I care without having to flip through a few dozen different panes every time.

    I'm behind a national firewall in the Middle East, and I still want access to feeds that are banned by my local government. Take your pick. Atheism. Politics. Religion. LGBT issues. Real news. I could get it all over Google Reader because it cached everything, images included, on the Google servers. Any software I install on my machine here would be on the wrong side of the curtain.

    Works great on a browser, and on my Android device (Nexus 7). Too bad about Google Reader, I quite liked it.
