Lightheartedly

Because, recently, a large percentage of them seem to be originated by this person 'who-shall-not-be-named' called Anonymous, most probably a.k.a. Proz.com staff. If you can't put a name behind an opinion or idea, then it really doesn't warrant a well-thought-out reply or serious discussion. You might as well start off each Anonymous poll topic with "Rumour has it that..." or "Current opinion is that...." IMHO

Truthfully Sep 2

In principle, truthfully, I enjoy the polls and check them daily, though I wish that the same questions weren’t asked over and over again and “Anonymous” could become “nonymous”…

Why on earth would I respond otherwise? I have better things to do with my time than try to mislead people just for the sake of it.

Truthfully Sep 2

... with my usual heavy-handed passion if it is one of my hobby-horses...
If I can't face the truth, I chicken out and don't answer at all.

Exactly what I was thinking! People who lie on polls may be doing it maliciously, or impishly, or just because lying is what they do. So maybe chronic liars are lying on this one--meaning, perhaps, that they usually DO answer truthfully and are now lying about that fact?

Now I'm starting my Saturday with a headache.

Can anyone devise a poll that makes allowances for the Epimenides Paradox, the 'All Cretans are liars' story?
http://david.tribble.com/text/liar.htm

Something on the lines of "How would a liar answer this question?", I believe
Or: "How would you answer this question if you were lying?"

See what I mean? I was telling the truth all along, and you set me off on a hobby-horse!
