Sorry if this has been asked before, but...

Have you considered allowing a poster to post a poll? For example, on AIBU it would be nice to see a summary of answers, maybe on a five-point scale: "very unreasonable", "slightly unreasonable", "neutral", etc

This would obviate visitors from having to read thru several pages of posts to get a sense of what people feel.

Terrible idea.

Reading what people say is the interesting part though. And posters can sometimes be swayed by the strength of other posters arguments.

Or it just makes a bun fight which is also interesting.

We talk to each other. That's what a discussion board is about.

This is also why we don't want a Like button on individual posts or the ability to quote.

Use your words...

The whole point of a chat forum,is to chat.

People talk about things. Threads develop and move on (even in AIBU). Shortcuts should stay on Farcebook.

In Zombie's very humble opinion.
