I know this makes me seem like a bit of a grumpy old man, but I am actually interested in the outcome of polls like this. Why include a ridiculous option that (at time of this comment) pulls in 21.8% of votes and pretty much renders your otherwise interesting poll unreliable and far less interesting as a result?Sorry for being a spoilsport, but polls are excellent tools!

I assume you're talking about "Knaaaaaaak..."? Other than the fact that it's potentially ambiguous, I'd say it's a pretty concise way of giving people the option, "I'd be interested if it weren't for the fact that Knaak is a writer so terrible, I'd find better prose by combing through vomit"?

The Knaaak option is for people who actually read the books (or tried to read the books) and would never buy another piece by Knaak (but still enjoy the idea of WoW books). Even though not worded so much, it's still a completely normal poll option.I agree it would have been more complete with:>Only stuff by Knaak>Only stuff by Golden

You see, being a non-reader of any of the books, I assume that 'Knaaaaak' is some silly noise made into an option, so it's bad information! If it was 'Only books by Richard Knaak' for example, as you've mentioned, yeah I think that'd be fine!But there we go, I'm just a miserable old dwarf. Back to my tankard.
