Of course that was not the intent, but it is clear that people do get upset when mechanical devices are referred to as a possible "cure." I am just saying that might explain why someone voted "no" 90 times! Jeff - I think this does raise the point, though, that the front page polls are not really useful unless duplicate votes are automatically ignored. And how can you know for sure if a vote is duplicate, if a person has dyamic IP? There is really no way to know if their IP address changes every 10 minutes like with some DSL connections. I think the polls need to be member-only, or they will have little meaning.
