    that was already asked several times a long time ago. very few actually want dumb "<thing> vs <other thing>" polls and resulting holy wars.

    Polls have always been an interesting idea. I think one reason we didn’t add them was because it seemed like they could get very repetitive with the same questions over and over.

    I can create a bot to do that but it won't make sense replying to poll in order to vote.

    No idea how it ties in with the rules but couldn't you achieve a similar thing by commenting on a question with possible poll answers and counting votes on those comments? Might be considered skewing users' overall vote counts though

    Because you’ll all start fights about what language is better than what others, what package is better, what framework is better and yea. Cba with that fam

    @dfox Thank you for realizing this. They'd be abused so badly.

    If you ever *do* add them, perhaps add them under their own tag (with no exceptions). Then we'd be able to ignore those tags if we wanted to.
