    You should have kept this poll for 1st April. Unless you've got something more outrageous up your sleeve ;-).

    Actually, I wasn't expecting The Spanish Inquisition. But only one option? Gee, when did MicroSoft buy the Perlmonks poll?

    And should we expect to see dancing monkeyboys in the upper right corner of the web page now?

      Damn, that was the first thing that came to my mind too! So funny!

    Has Perl monks been talking to Diebold Election Systems? Will TIMTOWTDI be superseded by The One True Way?

    emc

    use strict || die;
    Yes, I know it's not valid Perl

        I just want to say two things: 1) googlefight-- (what a great example of how to take something trivial and turn into something flashy that won't work in most of my browsers for no good reason). 2) Using contractions when constructing acronyms (or whatever you want to call them when they aren't "nym" enough for you) is a bad idea.

    Two options actually. One can simply not vote :P ;).

        It is better either to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words, but a great deal in a few.

    OK, who'll be the first to manage to submit a null vote, so that the results aren't 100% for the only option?

      As I look, there are now two (248/250 votes on the option).

        How did that happen?
        How did they uncheck the radio button to insert a null vote?

        And why would a database be designed as to accept null in a vote?

    To quote local band Rush, .. if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice! How's that for zen thinking?

    So apparently I've made a choice, even without voting on the poll.

    How provincial <yawn>, are we being marched to the polls too.

      No, this isn't Chicago. (Hm, you know, that is actually a great double pun ...)

        Hey, don't knock Chicago. Our motto: "Vote early and often". And just because someone's dead, doesn't mean they can't vote, too.

    Actually I *did* expect this poll... had to happen sooner or later. Unfortunately I couldn't find that as an option to select....

    And just 99% of votes are for this one-line poll.

    Okey, where are you 1 percent guys? How did you manage it? :-)
