Polls on internet forums are influenced by the opinion of the TS?

I personally think they are, since if they put a good reason in their post it immediately changes how the person thinks about the issue, no matter what they thought before they entered the thread.

Discuss, poll up soon.

No. You form an opinion almost instantly after reading the question. Often times the question is in the title, so you have a solid opinion even before you open up the thread.

if they put a good reason in their post
tip of the iceberg, really.

- you can affect the outcome by misleading wording in the question and options.

- you can affect the outcome by being a dick in your OP and favouring one of the options. this triggers votes that are contrary.

- you can affect the way the results appear by having lots of conditional options that are basically yes and a very few that are basically no. at first glance, it will look like the no's are more highly favoured.


yes because (reason a) ************
yes because (reason b) ************
yes because (reason c) *************
-no because (reason x) *******************
-no because (reason y) *********************
yes because (reason d) ***********
yes because (reason e) ************

yes has 60% of the vote
no only has 40%
but no looks like the winner.

It depends on who the user is. If someone popular like coreysmonster creates a poll, his take will probably influence people.
Balls.

Obviously if someone makes a better point than the one you have your going to adopt it, it's called learning.

Then TS has influenced your choice.

You can choose a ready guide
in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide,
you still have made a choice.

Actually, I did vote, just to try to even out the poll.

Irrelevant. Free will does not exist. Nobody is choosing anyway .

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

Predictable response. From your type of person.

by putting a rational point in your OP you have already nullified the whole point of this thread by creating a bias in your favor.

anyway, most times I will answer a poll before reading the OP soo i said no
no sir away a papaya war is on

Actually it is not. Try again.

It is probably influenced more by the reaction of the posters than the TS.

Seems like something Clint Eastwood would say. Clint would not be swayed by the ts's opinion.

Instead of holding out for the name of the movie, I'll call it close enough since you got the actor and give you the cookie with a bite already taken.
