People do that because you have to vote to view the results. But thay made it so they have to do that. I don't think it's fair because what if you don't have an answer and they have it on there. Most likely someone is going to pick it. So just pick that option.

If you are asking for help, you don't want to offer advice to yourself because you're the one who needs adivce from others. WI's system allows you to vote, then view results. So the person clicks the option "___ only" as their vote to see the results.
Right, but my point is the opposite. People shouldnt vote that, and if they think someone will, they should make a "I dont know" option.

I think they should post their opinion! Not just get on someone nerves.

Maybe they don't like any of the other options on that poll, so they click that just to view the results...

When I make a poll, I dont give that "birthdayman98 ONLY" option!

I really dont think that option should be allowed, and if it still is, please stop voting it if you are not that person.

Thank you.
That way they can do the poll without skewing the results with their bias. If they put the first vote in, it may well influence other's votes. If they vote a 'spoiled ballot' so to speak, the results will be more accurate without them knowing which way the person stands on an issue I NEVER touch that one that is meant for the thread Author. I think that is rude and inconsiderate.

Yup! I dont touch it either, and like you said, it affects the other options, and there percentages.

Like Dixie said, I do think it is very rude when someone votes that option and they are not the maker of the poll. They have to respect that the creator of the poll does not want people to touch it. I find it not nice at all when members vote that option. It's there for a reason and I stay away from it.
