HighStrung, that was my decision and had nothing to do with ethnocentricism. I created this poll by trying to guess the countries the monks live in. This is why I added places like e.g. Israel (I know there's quite some Perl development going on there), Italy (I had seen quite a number of posts by Italian monks), Sweden etc. My goal was to have a list of countries that allows most monks to select their own country, without the list being so long that nobody would want to vote on the poll.
So far, 46 out of 648 people voted on the "other" options (including 3 Chinese who I guess to be PRC chinese). The remaining 93% voted on a single country, so I guess tye helped me achieve my goal by revising my suggestion in a good way :).

Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
