And why are some polls being locked when they break no rules?

I ask this because it's being talked about recently and because I just looked at this.

I don't understand why this poll was locked. True, it had no benefit whatsoever other that the personal pleasure the "winner" got. But I've seen worse topics than that. I just don't understand why some are asking for MOD approved polls to keep things like this from being started. Are we going to want MOD approved topics next? Where you'll have to wait who knows how long before your topic is posted? Does it take more bandwith or something to host a poll?

Also, I don't think Flea420 or Lbtg43 actually cared as much as some think, seemed like more of harmless fun to me. Two guys just joking around. If it had been more advanced users with the ever so important high post count would the poll have stayed open? I seriously start to wonder sometimes.

Hopefully a knowledgable person will shed some light on this for me, because as of now I'm stumbling in the dark.

I'm not in any way trying to pick a fight with anyone.. I don't go that low online. I'm just asking out of curiosity and because what happens here (MOD approved polls for example) affects everyone.

Then we should banish all annoying posts? It doesn't make sense. If you don't like a poll/topic, don't read it.

I just don't see how a poll is any different than a regular thread.

And normal topics don't clog up general? I assume you mean too loose when you say lose. And if that's the case they're (the polls) in the right place--- General Discussion.

I don't think you understand my question.

20x polls in one saturday is stupid - and alot of polls are doubles. it ends up being abused.

Oh, I understand now. It's OK to start regular topics like " How To Hide Your Money!", "M3's girlfriend isn't real", "Is Bagel gay?"...etc. But not for polls. Cool.
