There seem to be more and more polls surfacing on this site. Now I have absolutely no wish to stifle debate and or restrict users expressing their views either by way of a relevant posting or indeed participating and voting in a poll. Strikes me that given the media attention this site is generating lately and the proven fact that this is one of the first places the journo's would look if they wanted 'ground floor' reaction to a particular issue then what is to stop them soliciting their own polls and perhaps loading the questions in a particular way?? They could then go to press with an opinion that may not be absolutely reflective of the general views of this community. In the last few weeks this sites exposure has been significantly raised and we are now seen as the unofficial 'mouthpiece' of Army opinion. On this basis surely we have an obligation to ensure our views are portrayed accurately. Perhaps we should limit polls only to users after they have passed a certain posting limit? This could help to ensure it is a bona fida member of the community looking for an opinion as opposed to a journalist? Perhaps there are some other ideas about Just a thought is it worthy of discussion?
