Hold the popcorn Joe, I’m not bothered at all. I really am curious. I’ve had mixed feelings about it myself, but I tend to want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to answer the poll question, and “I don’t like” does that.
Just a suggestion. I understand what you are attempting to accomplish with “I don’t like,” But I wonder whether “None of the above” might be a better option. For instance, I may absolutely love some particular thing, but I might not care for any of the four or five things mentioned. I don’t want to say I don’t like the thing when I do. But “None of the above” gives me the chance to respond.
Whoops! Al, I hadn’t seen your post before I put this one up.
