    Question Answering polls that don't apply

    Advertisements
    Ok, so I am just curious how everyone feels about this.

    How do you guys feel about people voting on a poll that has nothing to do with them. Sometimes on advice from parents and a non parent answers, or a question in ttc and someone who has never ttc answers.

    Now i realize there are ALWAYS exceptions to the rule, but I am talking generally speaking.

    It doesn't really bother me. I know I sometimes answer the preggo polls before I realize it is posted there. If someone is posting with an honest opinion on something, and they do it nicely, I could really care less.

    sometimes I will post in those that don't apply to me yet...I don't generally vote...or i will put other and give my explanation...by saying what I might do..or what I plan to do in that situation when it arises...I think voting just to vote and skewing (sp?) the results could be frustrating...but I never vote on those...unless there is that infamous other!!!

    i don't fall in either of those categories, so i generally don't respond unless it's like "i knew someone who..."

    if you think about it, though, people who are trained to help parents/with parenting/doctors/nurses/etc...might not actually be parents themselves, but it doesn't mean they don't know their stuff, KWIM?

    Doesn't bother me. It's just a pole, not the end of the world.
