Depends upon the poll, but more often than not, yes.

Re: Another other

No I don't think it should...it's a cop-out as this poll already proves...(where's that tongue-in-cheek smiley)...

Re: Another other

Re: Another other

We do need another other but.... as others on here will guess..... we need it to have another name. Otherwise confusion may result between one other and another. Thus if you post another poll, other than this one, please ensure that the other, other option, is included to avoid another ****-up like the other one.

Thank You

Re: Another other

Clearly, in the interests of 'freedom of choice' Other should always be included in a poll, lets face it if the Mods don't like it they can always edit the results

Although if Mr Pollster wants to lead the Voter's down a narrow path so as to get a certain result the introduction of an 'Other' option may cause pandemonium

However, as it's nice t have a bit of confusion now and again I vote Yes.

Re: Another other

Nope, some polls don't really need an "other" option.

Re: Another other

You are all missing the point.......


.....the real question is, do Pasi's polls need any other options apart from "Other"?
