    I haven't made a poll thread in a while. So here's the question:

    Please explain why or why not in your response.

    Edit: Apparently some posters needed clarification. So here is some clarification:



    Also please remember Rule 10.

    My default response is no.

    I prefer not to agree to something unless I know what it is. Usually if someone withholds information about something, while asking you to agree to that something, in my experience it's best to expect the worse. :D

    This is a toughy...or it's tricksy...

    With certainty, you have posted a new poll, so I must answer "yes,"
    But at the same time, you have requested justification with specification; therefore my response should be "no."

    However, in the end, I answered "yes" because I'm in an affirmative mood right now:p

    Which ??

    Personally I prefer ?. Some Spanish people think ¿ is "cool", but they also like mincing around in frilly shirts and a cape whilst sticking needles into cows.

    So the answer is definitely ?. Jesus didn't need any ¿'s when he wrote the Bible after all, did he? Exactly. So why start now?

    You should have considered voting yes and no Professor @Laika Schrödinger.

    I'll add some clarification to the OP. I see some other posters may have been confused as well.

    Well that change to the OP makes all the difference.

    My answer remains the same, but for different reasons.

    That does not seem to be an option. Neither does voting neither yes nor no. I see nothing in the laws of physics that would preclude these options from being possible.

    well there are two passionate schools of thought on this question, with pros and cons on both sides

    but without getting into the weeds, my answer is no,

    to keep them at 50/50

    The answer is so obvious that I don't understand how it could even be contested. All I know is that some of the posts on this thread really turned my stomach.

    As usual, the options given do not really sum up my views, so I must abstain from voting.
