An interesting set of ideas presented. I do try to keep my questions topical to the hub and I hope I don't come across sounding like it is an obligation that readers need to vote; I just think it is an easy way to express an opinion, including a no opinion which I try to remember to include. It is much easier, in my way of thinking, than writing a comment, but comments do seem to be the preference; which is good.
An interesting anecdote. I had one hub that actually hit a Google headline or something and it brougt in about about 100 in one day, for me, that is a lot of hits, yet not one vote! I made a comment about how surprised I was, which is how I found out why I received so many visits; it was very left-handed compliment about the Google headline but the readers problably not liking my dribble, and left without voting. Anyway, the next day, I received more votes than any poll before or since, go figure.
