In the opinion section we have actual debates carried out in the comments, but in the polls you can only make one comment when you vote. It'd be nice to be able to give feedback on opinions within it...

Who agrees?

That's your fault for being a post addict.

Huh? You can make more comments...there's the comment-with-your-vote bit, but there's also a comment-on-the-poll bit.

No, polls are not a good mechanism for debate. The way to have a debate is to have a debate, not to try to convert polls into debates. I think the opinions section of DDO should be abolished entirely. However, it is somewhat interesting to measure opinion in order to measure how the lurkers feel. Blasting lurkers with comments just drives them away.

Maybe an option could be added to select "I'd like to debate this subject as Pro [or Con]". Then the site could give you an alert when a potential debate opponent shows up. That would help redirect opinions to debate.
