    I didn't see the "Because Nightstalker isn't allowed into petting zoos after the incident with the peanut butter" option.

    How did YOU hear about that? *blushes*

    Of course that option wouldn't be there!!! In keeping with traditional Siege Polls, I am not interested in finding the truth, only finding ways to force people to pick the lesser of all evils!!!

    What's biased about my poll? You either want one thing, or the other, or both, or nothing at all.

    Why is it that you are some incompetent player that doesn't even PvP, let alone suits for PvP and wishes to cry about a PvP poll?

    Really? What does it matter to you? ****ing pro.

    I think he's referring to you asking the same question 3 different ways and getting the same answer each three times but refusing to accept it. Just a guess. :bdh:

    Please, for the love of God, both of you make more sense. You try so hard to stand out here, but you're just bad at it.

    Because asking for any kind of change is pushing a bias. We're not surveying what things are, we're surveying what people want.

    As long as the bias is in the best interest of Siege, your connotations make no sense.

    Well Forsaken,
    You keep making polls that ask the same question and EVERY TIME they have gotten the same results (the ones you don't like). So keep making more polls and keep finding that you are actually in the minority.

    How you like them apples little guy?

    W T F are you talking about?

    *NEWS FLASH* My poll did exactly what I said it would. The votes went exactly where I knew they'd go. Aka the people want what I want. Who's the minority? Oh, that's right. . .Good job!

    p.s. To prove how ****ing dumb you're being just to get attention, THIS WAS MY FIRST POLL EVER MADE AND I EVEN FAILED TO MAKE IT PUBLIC AT FIRST. (So, wow 2nd one!) GOOD JOB! :thumbup1: :thumbup1:

    When it comes to failure, you'd think it took one to know one.... so I really don't understand how someone like you can fail at even that.

    Good job! :thumbup1:

    It was question about polls in general, I never mentioned you. Why did you decide to make it about you? Need the attention? Just wanted another cry post to your record?

    I've noticed that the polls in this forum always push a bias, in that they dont fairly represent the opposing views for them to be voted on, there is most always a stipulation added in with the opposing views poll option, so even by selecting it, you are not finding the truth of the matter, but are only picking the closest match to your view.

    I'll set up a real poll for you to show you how it's done.

    Take notes, I expect you to follow suit with future polls.
