Comments on ? Poll (D.J. Jerz)
Nearly 70,000 people took the time to vote in this poll. This is beyond stupid -- so far beyond stupid that it approaches significance. It's impossible to deconstruct this poll because it has no content, but how many equally pointless polls have appeared in USA Today or sparked local TV news stories? I am both amused and repelled by its vacuity.
? [Slashdot Poll]

So, why did so many people vote in the poll? Curiosity? Because it's funny? Something else?
