    Motive/Purpose Poll

    o Some visit here primarily for conversation and to be entertained.

    o Some to play word association games.

    o Some to instigate discord and fight with clever words.

    o Some for a combination of the three.

    Q. Which one are You?

    If that poll is exhaustive then the motivation for this thread must also be associated with the options you list... so which is it then!?

    Reveal Hidden Content
    Hint: try to eliminate some of the options from your list - for example, not a word association game

    My main capacity in this forum is motivating folk* to act with purpose.

    Optional, Andy. Please feel free to ignore this friendly poll or become a spectator in the stands. My own motive and purpose is the same today as when I joined: to engage in conversation with friends, to learn from them and be entertained. -Bob

    and how exactly is an incomplete poll (why didn't you provide "learning", or "other" as an option?) conducive to any form of stimulating conversation between friends? Further, do you derive entertainment from conducting such polls!?

    Get creative, Agberg. Please include or exclude any and all free lance expressions of your own motives and purposes for visiting here you please. Rather than a lengthy, numbered poll I went with minimum structure (only enough to give it substance and form). There's a point at which side bars become counter productive. Thanks for your cooperation.

    The omission of "other" (making the poll exhaustive with no need for sidebars) leads me to the suspicion that this poll was intentionally loaded.

    "Other", as with write-in candidates at election polling centers, is allowed for by virtue of precedent and implied. The poll was a spur of the moment idea between breakfast and shaving and getting ready for the full slate of NFL Games today and a phone call. Nothing about it is "loaded"; please take it at face value before it's totally destroyed. Thank you kindly. -Bob

    A. ? (OP)

    All four options are "friendly" if the responses reflect a measure of accuracy and honesty.
    Friends, even in cyberspace, don't practice deception and/or subterfuge with friends.

    Your third option is based on whom?
