Who invents these Quick polls?
Sep 29, 2010

I see there is a Quick poll ('home page', right column) which has these mutually exclusive choices:

I only ever shoot raw
I always shoot in raw + jpeg mode
I only use raw in certain circumstances
I never shoot raw

I shoot raw nearly all the time; clearly 'I only ever shoot raw' is therefore excluded. I shoot jpeg when the occasion arises, not very often at all. I don't use the other options (but see below). Well, wouldn't you think that many are in my position and this probably renders the poll pointless?

Why 'I only ever shoot raw', rather than 'I only shoot raw'. Sounds childish. And what is 'I only use raw in certain circumstances' supposed to denote? Someone who only shoots raw also only uses raw in certain circumstances, albeit in all circumstances which are, nonetheless, 'certain circumstances'. Anyway, if you shoot raw it is always in a 'certain circumstance', how could it not be? I wonder what the point of such a poll is and who 'designs' them.
