in thread Should every poll have a "CowboyNeal" option?

It makes sense on slashdot, as he's one of the admin over there.

Why it took off, I have no idea. I always preferred 'There are spiders in my hair! There are spiders in my hair!' response from The Asylum (at Georgia Tech, I think), unfortunately, that site closed shop in the 1990's, and most people these days never saw it. They had a poll archive, but I can't remember the exact URL to check if archive.org has a copy of it. (and searches for the above response or 'favorite features of Microsoft Bob' don't find anything)

The asylum had an interesting take on polls -- each response had [+] and [-] buttons next to it, and each poll could have 20 responses -- people would add responses 'til it filled up, and if a response was voted to -20, it was deleted, and someone could add a new response.

(updated to fix typo)

[Your Mother]: HR Clinton was literally threatening Russia. She would have been MUCH more likely to start real trouble.
[Your Mother]: I think there is less decorum this time.
[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
