in reply to This poll has:

hmmm... Only one correct choice.
It can`t be this, because there are two of them..

Only one correct choice.
Same as above..

More than one correct choice.
If it was this, another one would have to be correct, let`s see

No correct choice.
If this was the correct choice, it wouldn`t right, so also dropped(the classic dilemma (-; )

None of the above.
If none of the above was right, then there is no reason that the more than one answer is wrong, so this also leads to complications

All of the above.
All of the above can`t be right, because of the first two, which are wrong for themselves.

Such silly choices that I am not voting on it.
--> This is the only way to face this dilemm, i would say!
Please correct me if I am wrong, because I am not very good at that logical stuff at all (-;

Happy Holidays, Grexman

    The fact that the 'silly' choice is valid also makes the 'more than one' choice correct.

      No, not really (-;
      I read it later in another posting, but the "silly" option also is not valid, because if you vote for it, you are lieing because you say you did not vote. Therefore it is also invalid
      Ciao, Grex
        As I see it we have moved into fuzzy logic land with this poll.
        Obviously the answer only one correct choice is contradicted by the same answer (unless there are some non-printing characters... the source says... no... unless the answer requires a specific radio button value.).
        The next choice has a definite problem... if multiple answers are correct the only other valid answer is the opt-out poll answer, which would seem to invalid the vote.
        If there is no correct choice than the choice of it would be incorrect.
        If none of the above are correct then there must be some half state, however the excluded middle defiantly SHOULD apply here.
        All of the above would imply that the answer itself be wrong.
        And of course the choice of not choosing... which is denies its own possibility for an answer because it is a vote that clearly states the voter isn't voting.
        So I think that the answers must both be correct and incorrect at the same time... so the answer to this poll is obviously blaming the entire fiasco on Green peace... as I am sure they will have nothing to say and we can henceforth assume it to be their fault.
