Why couldn't you just attach a poll to the thread? And no, I don't hate Microsoft but the direction they're taking concerns me at the moment. I don't like product bastardisation and I don't like the fact that they seem more interested in catering to app junkies than the traditional users of their products.

I don't hate MS or Apple, but I do dislike Apple because of their extortionate prices and constant patent / suing trolling

Imnot taking part in the childish poll, however, simply removing _result?v from the URL gave me the voting page

If you hate Microsoft, maybe you should consider another tech site than NeoWIN. just an idea :)

Also why use an off site poll and not the built in one of the forum. other than to make sure noone votes, except those who are the biggest trolls and will go to any length to show their displeasure.

It would be easier to publish the poll here, I'm not gonna click on a link to an external page for a poll like this, and no, I don't hate MS.

But that wouldn't matter, if they delete his post, noone will ever see and know his poll exists anyway.

When I came to this thread it was pretty new and already had over 10 votes, so I take it that poll originated from some other forum that probably leans towards Microsoft hate or immature punks, as the poll started off with more votes in favor of Microsoft hate.

Meh...

Reporting this thread now, it's just as immaturely worded as the front page news item and just a counterattack against it.
Hence, not very helpful at all.

Why not just put the poll in here?


Agreed. Neowin is not a support forum for another site. We have a Poll Station for threads like this............. but it might not last long since this thread is basically a flamefest waiting to happen.
