  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Australian usage pretty much follows the above, except that we tend to say 'lollies' where you would say 'sweets'. Not sure 'lollies' actually counts as a legit word or as slang, but it's used almost universally rather than 'sweets'. 'Sweets' is understood, but sounds very stereotypically British to our ears (much like 'candy' sounds stereotypically American). 'Candy' is a very particular thing precisely how you describe it, and the word is almost never heard other than on American TV shows.

    And yeah, chocolate is altogether a separate thing than lollies/sweets. I lived in America for a few years and while I had no issue adjusting to saying 'candy', I never could get used to the fact that it INCLUDED chocolate. To me they are inherently different types of thing. Someone would say "want some candy?", and I'd say no, only to realise afterwards that they were offering chocolate and hell yes, I would have liked some :(
