It absolutely bothers me. I absolutely love filling out polls/surveys so it kinda ruins it for me lol. I just wish people would use the status update instead of polls. Also bothers me when people add the (+1) thing to an option since it skews the results. Idk man, I'm just a slut for polls
I see! I personally just write in the comments what I would vote (or in the past, what I voted) unless I have no idea what I would vote myself. Back when you had to vote on your own polls to see results, I hated it when people put a "MY OPTION DON'T VOTE THIS" that they didn't delete after voting, then raged out when people voted on that
Quick important stuff gets posted as polls because I never read statuses unless I catch something interesting while I'm deleting them, there is simply too many statuses. And people quickly see polls. Other times I just feel like posting garbage in polls because I'm a monster So, I don't mind if people do that at all either. I don't really get how people can be annoyed about it either, things like chain texts are way more annoying to see.
I find its nice for quick things, since looking at a journal or status requires navigating away from your inbox, but you don't have to navigate away to look at a poll, so I find polls are more likely to get a response
I used to do it and annoyed quite a few people that way (sorry ) Nowadays, if I do it at all, it's for advertisements, but I try to use statuses for those things now and keep the polls for actual questions (and struggle to come up with things to ask, to be honest. BUT I TRY)
Also, it personally doesn't really bother me. I do feel like journals and statuses are better suited for that, but I'm not too bothered.
