Please read this as what I as a Moderator consider before posting a poll. I am not giving direction or telling you how you should take your poll.(sorry couldn't pass that one up)
Typically when I create a poll there are criteria I meander through before I post it.
1. Is it relevant? Is it relevant for more than 23 minutes?
2. Are all possible options covered?
3. Polls show up on the front page, so is it a poll that I would vote on and make me want to participate in B&G?
4. See #3, when you post a Poll, it bumps what ever poll is on the front main page off for yours. Is the poll that is present a more interesting poll?
5. I try to use polls to generate discussion.

Obviously you are free to create Polls of your liking, and no one will stop you.. or you can just enjoy someone elses poll (your mileage may vary). Keep in mind that asking a poll question is asking for various opinions, and limiting your exposure to those varied opinions goes a long way.. LOL

My pancake recipe was not in response to your poll, but rather to some of the comments about polls in general.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Well I certainly wasn't trying to piss the world off with it. I was just curious how long the "no kicker" drama (that really wasn't a drama) would last and did not think it required that level of blowback. That's not something typical from members of this site.

If I had posted "Vote for your favorite font" on your Saints underwear or "Who do you think will replace Brees in 2022" I would have understand the anger.

Re: The dreaded K

and I don't mean your recipe or comments when I say blowback.

I think anyone can see from my tenure and post total I'm not posting crap for the sake of stats or trying to irritate.

You didnt brother... Well not any more than they were when they had breakfast.
Technically it is still the off season and members do not presently have enough to keep them distracted.

Don't take it personally, they mean no harm, their wives stopped talking to them in April so their misguided frustration often ends up in font here. 4 days of off season left and this poll will be burred under a 1/2 dozen Run!/Ingram!/Kicker! polls.

You can't help it if they clicked.

Re: The dreaded K

Sorry ar. Not venting at you. Sometimes the steam buildup from other things lead us to over-react to stuff like this.

Although it does give many of us the chance to work on our one-liners.

Keep it up!
