I enjoy polls. They're sort of like those stupid party games that everyone loves to hate, until the partygoers realize that supid party game just let them walk up to a complete stranger and strike up a conversation that lasted half an hour. Speaking as a geek, that's gold.
It's also a way of strengthening the community by having everyone gather in the kitchen for a cup of coffee, lovely cold beer, delicious wine, smoky scotch and perhaps a pipe to give us time to tell stories to each other.
