I’m extending this poll until 20th December because when PollDaddy changed their name they wiped out the poll. I was able to get it back, stats intact, but many were unable to vote during this period. Hence the extension. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

You can also come back once a day to vote until 20th December!

N.B.  The reason for the missing 3 months of this poll, is because I have been looking into paid polls (polls which have more security) but for now I’m staying with the free version whilst I continue my search. Those that I have found are either too expensive or targeted towards self-hosted websites. However, I have changed this poll so no one can see the results until the end. That should help a little.
