Poll question: Do You Like Binary Polls?
Two doozies today


Do You Like Capitalism?


Sometimes...


Do You like The Working Class?


Who in their right mind is going to say no....


These questions are as silly as "do you like to

eat

sleep

have sex"

So, do you like binary polls?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Sometimes they are useful
It depends on what the question is. But usually a gradated poll is better.

Like you do you like the working class poll would be better as having the standard 5 answes (YES!, sort of!, eh, Not really, NO!).

The times they can be useful is when there is a perception that everybody feels the same way about an issue.

9. You always have the option of not choosing either answer,
Then posting a thoughtful, scathing critique of the poll.

That's why I like binary polls.
