I still think we should be able to have POLLS, but with normal discussion below.

Well the reason why polls are not liked on here is because people like the chat, the banter in the thread. I think if we had a poll at the top where you could vote but still HAVE the thread etc it would be good

like this thread here - you could have a YES and a NO vote - so a poster could open the thread, vote, then say "ooh 99% say yes" and then join the discussion

There does get to be a kind of dominant group-think thing that happens in threads, where if you have a minority viewpoint you don't pipe up about it because you don't want to feel attacked or alone in your views. So the thread leaves a rather biased impression of what "most people" think about a subject.

That would be the only nice thing about a poll, I could voice my (minority) opinion without feeling like I have to defend it (I don't like to debate). I wonder how many lurkers feel the same.
