  • 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.

    No, product placements. At first you think, "how could that be as annoying as a moving ad?", which was the option I picked. Then you start thinking of how product placement blurs the boundaries. A well-crafted placement lures you into thinking you're just watching a show. You have to be consciously looking for them. You question your values. Wait... Wrigley Stadium. It's an institution. Why can't the new named stadiums be like that? The would-be questioner of consumerism gets lost in a morass, loses his moral compass, and ends up blathering on about it in a post like this one, which is brought to you by Wrigeley's Spearmint.

The first time, it's a KLUDGE! The second, a trick. Later, it's a well-established technique! -- Mike Broido, Intermetrics
