it would depend on the subject of the poll
I think. obviously some polls might be personal
as in "do you think I should marry this guy/gal whom
you of course never heard of before but what do you
think? or should I become a trappist nun/monk? or
test motor cycles in the utah salt flats?"
and this is understandably maybe private...
but I think most polls are sort of fun in showing
how other people think and who thinks what and so on
so to not make it public kind of takes the fun away
doesnt it?

My issue with private (which I think is one of Vesta_venus's inspiration for being curious about this) is that it isn't truly private, it's "the poll creator can see the answers but nobody else can". In some cases (e.g the poll is what you think the poll creator should do) that would be fine, but in other cases I find it more of a privacy issue to have a situation where some respondants can see the results and others can't than to have everyone able to see it or everyone not able to see it.

Yes ,exactly... well,
as I often do when meeting an lj person on
another journal I clicked your userinfo and
see that you also went to Miskatonic...
I cant say I was there very long but I did
learn words to live by from old Whately.
he was a piece of work!
I would be happy to exchange friends relation but
I guess,having rather many I try to keep up with,
more mutually than otherwise and you may have
all you wish on board now... but as it seems
and in every case yrs

I have come to the conclusion (based on the fact that 2 people filled out this poll when I normally get 8-12 people replying) that most people do not care.

Thus, I think I will set it as viewable to friends from now on, unless it is something that I think people would be reluctant to reply if other people could see who they are (like maybe the what do you and your husband fight about question.)
