    Do irrelevant options ruin otherwise splendid polls?

    Do irrelevant options ruin otherwise splendid polls?

    I mean, I have passed by a few polls here on CW today, and each time I have been enticed by the irrelevant option, rather than voting with my heart and displaying my feelings.

    I propose that irrelevant options are rendered a bannable offence so that we can get some dignity back to our polls.

    Pointless polls in Cricket Chat like this one should be instantly deleted.

    Would've been wrong not to do the hillariously ironic choosing of the irrelevant 3rd option.

    Though i'd rather purge the scorn that is private polls. No aimed at anyone <cough>

    Me bad, sometimes it shows who's voted what underneath the bars, on this one have to click on the number at the end to see who's voted.

    Said it a while back, the irrelevant option should only be for OT.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I think it is the "splendidly irreverent" option that make "pompously irrelevant' polls worth participating in

    Excellent! I'm one of only 3 humourless martinets to vote "Yes" rather than go for the ironic third option. (no offense Clapo and Shaguar)
