For Zarquon's sake. Some of you still don't get it.
The poll in its published form was daft because all it did is fuel the fire and incite flame wars. If a member had posted the very same poll on the forum the topic would have been closed and the member warned. Double standards much?
It also made Neowin look rather silly to visitors. Can that be what the news staff is after? Attract visitors with troll-ish headlines for the sake of getting more clicks? I think not. I was under the assumption that the editors have at least some journalistic standards.
And lastly, it's regardless of which company the poll had been about. Apple, Google, MS -. the way it was asked would have been daft all the same.
Its called learning to tolerate others and their views...whether you like it or not. I am sure there are things you do that others do not like. Goes back to what my parents told me when growing up...dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. Yes, sometimes things get out of hand ,but when it happens more often than not...then you have a problem.
I know people who likes American Idol, Soap Operas, Bad Girls Club, and yes,,,WWE. To each their own. They are not making me watch it or forcing it on others, so it really doesnt impact me.
And people trolling and posting certain comments are not doing so to show their intelligence. They do so to stirr up trouble. An intelligent person would be able to post maturely without causing any kind of back lash.

It's a leading question. I really don't know how to make it any clearer.

The question was "Do you hate apple?" was it not? If so, not a leading question more a direct question.
I'd agree with you more if the question had been "Why do you hate Apple?".
In common law systems that rely on testimony by witnesses, a leading question or suggestive interrogation is a question that suggests the particular answer or contains the information the examiner is looking to have confirmed.

You clearly didn't read the page I linked to. It's all explained there.

Sorry, i updated my post before you quoted it. I updated to explain what i meant a bit more clearly.
Not totally disagreeing with you, more realizing it's a bit of a grey area.

It really wasn't an article, it was a simple poll, there was no discussion beyond that as stated in the post. Not sure how anyone could take it so personally or think it was biased in any way, since there was no story/commentary at all to go along with it.
Freedom of speech only applies to the government censoring it's people. It has nothing to do with private media, in the work place, etc.

It's about context. Also, I didn't take it personally. It's just a fact, if you ask someone "do you hate ketchup?", you're priming their response. You've already shown a bias in the way you asked the question.

I totally disagree, as someone pointed out earlier, if it was asked as "Why do you hate ketchup?" then I could see it, but to take "Do you hate ketchup?" which has a "yes" or "no" answer, and try to turn it around and say you are asking a leading question is completely ridiculous.

Maybe one to get a read on what people think of this site. I suggest a neutral question like 'Do you think Neowin is going down the drain?'
I'm already looking forward to the next Weekend poll , it's going to be MASSIVE!!

Regardless of people's opinions, this topic was necessary for the healing process.
