    One thing I’ve noticed is that whenever there is a poll, there are 500 replies but 9 votes. This is because the polls force a “yes or no” stance to be taken more often than not.

    Is there a way to force a vote in the poll before the poster would get permission to comment on the thread? I don’t think you should do this to all polls because you’d end up with a bunch of lopsided polls with no dissent. But maybe make it a forum unto itself.

    No, that's "cheese". :D

    I had never heard of this before coming here but apparently it's a poll wild card for those who don't like any of the given choices.

    --- which frankly applies to most polls here.

    I don't know - I don't think so. Polls can be constructed in such a way as to avoid a strict yes or no, depends on how it's worded.

    You could post something in the DebateNow section and list as one of the rules that the person must vote in the poll :dunno:
