Polls

I thought polls were anonymous. I don't often participate, but I don't recall seeing the warning across the top about the public nature of the results, and I've never known you could click on the results and see who exactly voted what.

Is this new, or have I just been unobservant? I can recall once voting in a past poll that I had really wanted to remain anonymous on.

    Hmmmm...I see that some polls allow for anonymous results and some don't. Wonder how that happens?? Is it an option that the poll maker chooses? I've never been able to post a poll from my Mac, so I don't know.

    Well, be aware that some polls are and some aren't if it matters to you!

    Yeah, you can choose if you want the results of your poll to be public.

    Yes, it's an option of the thread starter. I always make mine anonymous to make everyone comfortable. I often don't vote if it's not anon. myself, depending on the topic.

    thank you for the info. i was unaware of the option to view which posters voted which way. scary.

    You're welcome! I question the motives of any poll starter who chooses that option--unless it is made clear in the OP. To me, anonymity is one of the major features that makes a poll attractive to more people and encourages more participants, especially with sensitive subjects.

    Interesting.

    I may or may not choose to discuss my poll choices, thereby revealing my name and answer.

    Anyway, for anyone who hasn't noticed, the religious poll is (or was) not anonymous. If you are not willing to have your preference made public, be aware of the public nature of the poll. I realize that there is a warning at the top of the poll. I just knew that, like me, some people may not have noticed it before responding.

    I didn't realize this either. For the most part, I am pretty open about my vote, but I still would prefer for a poll to not display this info.

    I agree it can be off-putting. I recently made the "Wigs" poll results public. It doesn't seem like a sensitive topic in that regard.
