  • I just had a debate about whether 255 is a number.

  • lately everything has been about the confederate flag, the 2016 election match ups, and gay marriage. Its not that those aren't worthy topics, its just that so many people have beaten the topic to death that it gets tedious now.

  • I'm looking at 2 specific users...

  • dis poll is a perfect example of my choice

  • The front page updating once in a blue moon is part of the reason.

@zachHu1 I'm talking about polls, not debates.
PetersSmith says2015-07-15T19:40:20.6088023-05:00
No one cares about my polls :(

@PetersSmith They were lost in the flood of these low quality polls popping up lately.
triangle.128k says2015-07-15T19:45:35.6768344-05:00
Not to mention that many recent polls popping up have very few votes.
PetersSmith says2015-07-15T19:45:42.0628580-05:00
Triangle.128k: Unfortunately low quality polls don't count as spam.

PetersSmith my polls are not low quality...
triangle.128k says2015-07-15T19:48:55.4149262-05:00
You're making way too many polls at a time. Not to mention your questions aren't thought provoking or anything. They're literally basic and boring questions.
sara_ann_dee says2015-07-15T19:49:22.2309824-05:00
Thats it - you'll see
triangle.128k says2015-07-15T19:50:40.7026050-05:00
I'll see what? Your polls are related to such simple personal preferences. Like asking someone what their favorite color or whatever.
Varrack says2015-07-15T19:52:47.0936366-05:00
It's always been pretty bad. If I come across another 2016 poll I think I'm gonna scream.
triangle.128k says2015-07-15T20:03:33.6919666-05:00
@Varrack Before, 2016 polls were the only problem. Now we have a bunch of boring, bland and basic questions.

(alliteration not intended)
PetersSmith says2015-07-15T20:08:10.2978672-05:00
Varrack: Mine attracted a PR, so HA!
Varrack says2015-07-15T20:11:46.9506334-05:00
A PR?
tajshar2k says2015-07-15T20:15:59.8874120-05:00
To begin with, I implore some users to stop with that Juche crap.
PetersSmith says2015-07-15T21:16:11.8851347-05:00
Varrack: Political representative, remember the who do you want to be president poll I made?
triangle.128k says2015-07-15T22:09:39.0746848-05:00
@tajshar2k Who are those 2 users?
Forthelulz says2015-07-16T01:16:32.7378285-05:00
@traingle.128k My money's on genesis and the up-and-comer doduo.
tajshar2k says2015-07-16T06:04:29.7040904-05:00
@Triangle Think really hard, who are the only two guys on this site, who spam with North Korea and Juche polls? I think you know the answer.
UtherPenguin says2015-07-16T11:27:16.5166302-05:00
@tajshar2k Are you subtly calling me out.
Varrack says2015-07-16T11:34:33.2374706-05:00
@PetersSmith Oh right, 36 people voted for that Zoltan Ivstak guy. Most of the voters were probably multis by the same person.
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:43:14.0564067-05:00
@tajshar2k hey, i've stopped with the polls now. PetersSmith warned me anyways.
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:44:15.2385398-05:00
@Varrack His.....
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:44:22.8824908-05:00
...Name was
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:44:34.4289548-05:00
Zoltan Istvan...
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:45:01.7574416-05:00
.. Not zoltan ivstak.
triangle.128k says2015-07-16T11:45:13.3949670-05:00
Sorry, my message got censored by the useless censors.
tajshar2k says2015-07-16T11:47:53.0131438-05:00
@Uther You better believe it.
UtherPenguin says2015-07-16T11:48:44.8516115-05:00
@tajshar2k I've built a negative reputation for myself :D!
tajshar2k says2015-07-16T11:49:16.6059836-05:00
@Uther Ok.
Varrack says2015-07-16T11:55:24.2214664-05:00
Oh whatever
Midnight1131 says2015-07-16T12:04:45.5943943-05:00
I'm just going to pop in to say this, we'd have a lot more quality polls if the front page updated more than once a month.
TBR says2015-07-16T13:53:55.9808479-05:00
His name is Zotron the supreme cyborg. Get it right, he will be your next Commander-in-chief .
sara_ann_dee says2015-07-16T18:33:28.6095665-05:00
I'm making a poll now that will catch your interests - check my recent in five minutes.
Stefy says2015-07-17T15:53:31.0542954-05:00
Triangle.128k: The second that she put a poll out that was quite thought provoking you reported it. Also you're the only one that I've seen who is bothered by her polls this much. You don't complain this much about racist or actually offensive spam polls. No one else is bothered by her polls at all I don't even think anyone really noticed any difference in the poll section after she joined up except you. And making a poll targeting a specific user is much worse than anything she has put out. I like you fine and I know you're trying to help the site, but she isn't causing any problems.
