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?
