    Folks,I have noticed that an increasing number of POLLS are getting hits from members that dont seem to have the intestonal fortitude to post as to just why they feel that way. Please,If you got the nerve to poll,just make a simple post as to why you feel that way. It really aint brain surgery. :wink::angry::angry::angry:

    That's what it is I think. If I answer a poll I usually make a post, but I can see sometimes why someone would not, especially in H.I. This isn't H.I., but sometimes disagreements occur between a member and the majority of the people sounding off, especially on hot topics that regularly come up. We are a community of many after all and some will have differing views on things that are cut-and-dried to others. I think it says something good about the great people on this site that we can have clean, intelligent conversation about things we care about without it devolving into bickering, and we can thank the mods for that, and the rules. Just my 2 cents.

    Man that sure is wimpish. Use the poll and wimp out on posting because somebody might not agree and have the guts to say why they don't agree.

    What is the world coming to?

    I have always been one to say what I think. Unfortunately, this has landed me numerous trips to the offices' of the upper brass at work. I have also made people mad on this site without meaning too. Sorry. If it looks like a topic that might go south, I try to keep my mouth shut. But sometimes I can't help myself. I apologize in advance for any feelings I may accidentally hurt in the future. On the positive side, people may get mad at me, but they know which side of the fence I'm on. I am not impressed with people that sit on the fence and check to see what the popular opinion is and then pick the side of the majority.

    Ummmm. Do you mean "Intestinal" fortitude? I bet there are just as many members on the BOC that also feel if fellow brothers need to start/reply to post....... to have the "Intestinal Fortitude" to check their spelling before posting. ;)

    Hey Richard, gotta agree with you. If a man's cajones are big enough to think it they should be big enough to put their name on it. Stay safe and remember, BS ain't nothing but chewed up grass!!!:wink:

    I'm probably guilty of not posting why i voted one way or the other if I participated in a poll on here. But it wasn't for fear of backlash why i voted one way or the other. most likely I didn't have anything of interest to say or be opinionated about the given poll. I never given it any thought that it would be looked at in a negative way if I didn't also make a post as why I voted. I'll try to do better in the future, I guess if I don't have anything to say about the poll, probably best to hold off on voting in a given poll, respectfully.

    Yep, me too. I'm probably guilty of answering a poll, and not posting or not taking the poll and making a post. Probably cause I don't have anything to say. Sometimes I dont' understand the poll, or it doesn't apply to me. The available answers dont' fit my answers.

    Hmmm... if someone views the poll results, they can see who voted in each category anyway, so what the heck, why not go ahead and make a post to show your position on the issue? Besides, it'll make Richard happy!!!:wink::smile2:
