From the Monopoly Piece To Remove poll:

Who voted for the hat? I feel like banning somebody.

I'm sure it's in the log files somewhere.

It's not.


I know Mike was just kidding about the ban, but it surprises me that there's no way to figure out who voted for the hat.

I mean, the database does keep a record of total votes, and it knows who voted to prevent stuffing the ballot, so why doesn't it record the user's choice?

On that note, I've seen polls in other forums where the poll choice that I voted for appears in italics to remind me of my chose. Perhaps that functionality should be added. And once that's done, there WOULD be a way for Mike to get his answer - although I realize it might be too late for this particular case....

Mike said it in jest. Please don't track votes. This is one of the few places around where you are not tracked in everything.

I meant it not so much for tracking purposes, but because I sometimes can't remember what I voted for. That's why I usually post "I voted for ____." But I hate doing that because I think it may influence people who haven't voted yet.

Wonder if that is just one reason some black sedan keeps following me? Whoever sold the guys inside their suits had a good sense of humor.
