Hi,

I gathered that, I just broadened the response.

The login vs non-login issue has plagued site developers for ever, and I've really come to terms with the fact that any "features" are going to be for logged in users, since I don't want fake data, spam, or other problems creeping in.

Not everyone feels the same way, and I can see limited use for non-logged in features in *some* situations where you are simply trying to grab traffic. But for providing services, the general hacker/problem community, as well as the legal climate, forces you to know more about who and what you are providing -- or taking -- infromation from.

Polls are good, but it should ALWAYS be ONE person, ONE VOTE.

Except in rare cases, and even those rare cases can usually be topologically rationalized to a ONE person, ONE vote topology -- or should be. There is really no reason to count 87 votes from one person... what does that show?? They have more time than things to do?

For those wondering, the topological reduction is when you get a code, or a key for some purchase, or bonus, and are able to use that to cast a vote for something. In which case, you are still getting one-vote per person/code, but even those situations are really rare, in the larger scheme of data collection.
