Sorry, I should have been clearer. I wanted the moderators to see this so they realize that the poll discussion is not working.

Is it possible the moderators don't want to hear the complaints about this poll since CC was the one pushing for it?

This topic really should have been posted in the Voting poll discussion forum and, of course, should have been posted there by JT when the poll went up. Hey, any port in a storm. Anyone with an opinion on this poll should feel free to post it here.

Scrapheap:

I understand the point, asking the moderators what their opinions are (individually or collectively), though if that's what ziyulu's intention was, he could have (should have) worded it: "Moderators, with the...", so they would know he's asking them for their views, and not asking members to respond to his "poll" in this topic.

But "this poll" was not run at the insistence of the moderators; THIS poll was run at the insistence of ziyulu. Same question but two different polls.

There are other and more appropriate categories to ask the question in (if the question isn't being asked of the moderators). That said, in my opinioin, the members should refrain from answering, and only the moderators should respond (in this topic, that is). Just my opinion.

Gas_Buddy - Since this poll was run at the insistence of the moderators, I for one would like to hear what they have to say.

As this discussion category is for members talking back to the moderators, ziyulu, you're asking the moderators for their opinions?

If that's not the intent of this topic, to ask the moderators if they think the United States is or is not headed in the right direction, or if they have no opinion, then the topic should be moved (or closed). There are other and more appropriate categories to have general membership discussions. In my opinion.

I don't think this poll should have been run. It eliminates our Canadian brethren.

I don't think we're headed in the right direction in many ways-health care "reform",immigration,nation's debt.

I created this for those who want to discuss the poll since the discussion poll is not working.
