Already gone. Only social network use is Google Buzz, and that not that much.

You need an “I already dumped it” options.

Dumped it for good (after two trial separations) nearly two yeas ago.

Good one. You’re right!

can I see the results without voting again? If there’s a link on this page I don’t see it, and I don’t want to mess it up πŸ™‚

This is my first experience with this tool, so I’m not sure how to do it, but let me give you the latest figures:

* 138 Responses
* 71 for Hell ya.
* 6 for No way.
* 26 only if I could import friends.
* 35 only if my friends switched too.

Wow, I’m impressed! If that’s any indication of the real situation it shouldn’t be too hard to get people to switch πŸ˜€

If only it wasn’t for Farmville… my addicted friends would never leave their farms behind πŸ˜›

Sure thing. For most of yesterday, ‘Only if my friends switched’ had a substantial lead, but the Hell ya answer surged today. It might have something to do with the fact that my friend and colleague Joe ‘Zonker’ Brockmeier gave it a push on his blog,. He’s a big open source advocate and the results could speak to the traffic he drove to the poll. πŸ™‚

Hell ya only makes sense if other people I knew joined. So torn between 1st & last of those 4 options.

I dumped it a couple of weeks ago. I get much less spam from my “friends” now.
