    Testing the poll feature -2

    This poll will have three single choice items, the way a person votes will be shown, and it will not expire.

    Maybe we should add "Vegemite" to the censored list

    I see that I got the spelling wrong. Thanks for correcting it (even if, as I see you don't like the stuff). That's OK, most of my family and friends don't like either Vegemite or Marmite.

    One thing that I can't seenm to be able to do is to go back and edit the spelling in my poll text.

    It is one of those things, that if you did not grow up eating it, you won't like it

    Doesn't sound good on this end.


    So-----------------how does it come out?

    Burns the hair off
    Eruptes in flames

    Has a terrible gas effect

    Comes out like warm ice cream

    It "comes out" of a jar, similar to peanut butter or thick jam. Nasty stuff, it is.

    It and Marmite are outlawed in a number of US states.

    Frank Pellow,
    Since you have now defined vegemite, the third choice on the poll is irrelevant and extraneous.

    As the vast majority of the few who are able to vote on this question are unlikely to have ever tasted vegemite (which I first thot might be an organic alternative to Vermiculite® insulation), having only yes/no choices for members to choose from is degrading, demeaning, and insulting to the membership.

    Were I paranoiac I would suspect that you, our premier statistician, had an occluded purpose when presenting this poll.

    Both to humor you and to aid in the testing of the vBulletin forum software however, I have voted “Yes”.

    I have done this knowing that without any personal experience of vegemite, I am expressing an attitude of mine that is deeply intertwined with my political and religious, or –non, views, and that I risk being flagged for expressing same.

    Pessimists may be right more often, but we optimists are happier!

    Frank Chaffee

    P.S. Frank, I will watch any polls you post in the future very carefully! (wink)
