Do you normally vote in polls?

08-09-2005, 09:13 PM
Only ones that are for a reason and not just to fill up some space or just there for the sake of being there. Be why I haven't done this poll ;)

I am doing this poll to see if it is worth while for me having one on my own website about what people like about my website .

a poll to decide whether a poll is worth while....thats a new one

If you vote no, shouldn't you technically be voting yes?

I suppose so

You should indeed :D This shows the interest-bias inherent in all forms of polling - responses are weighted in favour of people who can be bothered to answer polls, hence are more likely to have a strong opinion one way or the other.

If the poll question had said something like "Would you be prepared to answer this poll?", then by definition, 100% of honest responses would be "yes".

I guess you'll only receive yes because this is also a poll ;)

08-10-2005, 09:46 AM

Wait, it is logical for someone to vote 'no' in this poll. As someone said if the poll was "Do you vote in polls?" then it would not because if someone voted 'no' they would logically have to be lying. But since the statement is qualified with 'usually' a voter could claim that they broke their usual habit of not voting because of the nature of this particular poll. Thereby they were only trying to be honest in answering the occaisional poll that they do vote on. So in conclusion this thread isn't as funny as it was once percieved to be.

on "neopets.com" i noticed a poll asking "Do you ever lie on polls?", same thing :D

I can't wait to ditch the harsh realities of being in IT for the soothing embrace of sweet deception (philosophy). I have five more days left working here and then I am back at school and can work on my online journal. I've already got several columnists and the backend up, but I've had no time to design at all. :(

've already got several columnists and the backend up, (

Is there not a law against that?

Seriously though, I'm looking forward to reading it - you must be one of the most eloquent people on this forum :thumbsup:
