@ArmoredCore55: I believe we are more strict with polls so people don't change things after the fact. If a bunch of people answer a poll, you wouldn't want someone going in and changing the substance of the question, right?
@ArmoredCore55: Sure, I understand. Imagine though, that the question was something like "Do you steal candy from babies?" and the answers were "Yes" and "No". Folks start answering "No" because they're not monsters, and then the OP changes the poll question to "Do you object to stealing candy from babies?" Now those answers mean something totally different...so, yeah, that's essentially why we do it. : )
