  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    I am going to get to the latest book of this series if it kills me.

    My answer to the poll's question would be different depending on which time of the day that I would be asked:
    * I always read the newspaper in the morning while I eat breakfast.
    * I often read on-line in-depth articles during the day and evening, either in a trade magazine or online (frequent visitor to Ars Technica.. which a third of Slashdot topics seem to link to anyway)
    * I often end the day with a good book (fiction).

    And as to the question if visiting Slashdot itself would constitute the answer "Something Online", I would answer: No, not unless you have actually clicked a link in a story and read the article that the story links to.

    Read Conrad's "The Secret Agent" and "Under Western Eyes" and you'll wonder why Tom Clancy bothers to write at all.

It is not well to be thought of as one who meekly submits to insolence and intimidation.
