    Hi,
    Obvioulsy the true answer is no. Not because this is not a new poll, just because it is not a poll.

    Infact, there is the basic example of a meta poll: a poll about polls... and meta polls are not polls... or are they? Gee... is more difficult than I thought... :)

    Cheers

      Just because it's a poll about polls, doesn't mean it's not a poll. :)

      I voted no, because it was an old idea to base a poll on. In a very general way the outcome of this poll is whether or not people take it as:

      <sweeping generalization>
      yes: Is this a different poll than was there before?
      or
      no: Is this idea for a poll new?
      </sweeping generalization>

      Whether or not the results are valuable is another matter entirely... :-D

      Update: The grammar police say that the poll should probably be worded as: Is this a new poll?
