The problem with many "leading" questions [as per your site] is that you
can't agree / disagree with the question properly as there are grey
areas. You might somewhat agree with each argument, so you are unable
to choose b/w either given answer in a simple y/n situation. There are
often at least three answers to a question, "your" answer, an "opposing"
answer and the "correct" answer; however that trivializes the fact that
multiple answers could be equally correct for different people with or
without further argument -- but if you define the question to rigidly,
you can't give fair license to get the answer that is truly relevant for
I think back to the good old Eliza program, back in my late primary
school days in the era of the TRS-80 and Apple ][e computers. The
program asks a simple question, then depending on your response, it will
ask further questions along the way to get to an artificial point of
"knowing" the answer. Not sure if this helps, but along those lines,
you could perhaps ask simple questions and build a tree to allow people
to always give very short and un-ambiguous answers which they can agree
with and not end up on the shelf trying to decide an impossible "right"
answer for them based on the question which doesn't give them enough
scope to answer properly and therefore let the asker know what is really
thought by the responder.
Inevitably, many forum polls have the same problem. Limit the available
choices and you can't get appropriate or meaningful results. There are
always other options that aren't seen in the poll.
