I just added an "other" option to the poll. I'd intended one to be
there, as people tend to get testy without one. :-)
I originally came up with a list by choosing from my own bookmarks
some of the strips which see a lot of traffic, and then looking
online for lists of the most popular strips generally. ysth
suggested another list, and there was some discussion of how many
options a poll should have. Since I have been busy, ysth was
kind enough to link all the poll choices, suggest a final list,
and post on my behalf. The "other" option got lost in the process.
Had I been more attentive, I'd have noted this in the final draft;
particularly in a poll like this one, we're not going to please
