The poll will remain open until 5 AM Pacific time on Sunday, January 29. Your vote is completely anonymous, although our software records IPs to void double-voting.
Comments are always welcome, especially if you have a different answer from the ones given in the poll. First time comments are held in the moderation queue that helps stop spam; after your first comment is published, future comments should publish immediately without moderation so long as they comply with our terms (briefly stated after the comment box).
Thanks in advance for voting — and if you haven't figured it out, this is not a scientific poll.
