I was referring to the empty post only not the issues in the thread. Clive raises some interesting points and my sympathy lies with Nicola and Yvonne.

Something is but nothing
something it is not
nil plus nil is nothing
nothings what i got
Nothing on the tele
Nothing going on
Nothing to get worked up about
Nothing by the ton
Nothing times a million
Nothing minus ten
Don't say nothing to no one
It's nothing to do with them

Hi

Where does your win in Pau 2008 rate among your achievements?

Do you remember many of the hands you play or just the good / bad ones?
I remember this one?: http://www.eurobridge.org/bulletin/08_1%20Pau/pdf/Bul_10.pdf page 11

I also seem to recall a weak 2 you made in Pau on a suit similar to 87543, Have i made that up or was it a team mate?

Were these partnerships relatively new at the time?

a new suit would be forcing one round, 2NT would ask for a High Card Feature at the 3 level, or opener can show a shortage at the 4 level if max.

Alan, Yes I agree. I think it is better for the poster not to draw attention to the fact that the polls purpose was a UI issue.

I can also see John's point about the “learning process” of participating in polls.

Is there a way for the poll record to let the original poster see everyones initial answer, even if the final public record reflects the communities final (revised) thoughts?

If this happened, as the post “died” the original poster could then state how votes changed during its “life.”

I think it would be comforting to think votes were (mostly) unchanged as sometimes the poster is trying to gauge if a particular action is a “Logical Alternative” and if people are changing their votes to agree with the majority it may slightly damage the integrity of the poll.

However, as others have mentioned / implied, if there is a misclick or mis-read, then equally a change of vote would be beneficial to the poll.
