Presumably like me: I read the rubric casually, for which there wasn't an option, and lj didn't like it when I clicked submit without tickying a box first.

It doens't mind you doing it, it just doesn't show up in the poll results.

*nods*

I do it routinely when I don't want to vote in a poll but would like to see the results on that entry/my friends page in the future rather than input widgets that I do not intend to fill in.

When the rubric could be trivially enforced by the design of the poll, but isn't, are you really surprised that people do something different?

Who said I was surprised?

I was a bit surprised that so many people did.

<pedantry>But you didn't put it in red, so it wasn't a rubric.</pedantry>

If I took that line then I could bring a case against the University Maths Departments which never print their rubrics in red...

Sometimes I obey the rubric, if I'm awake enough to notice it's there and if it makes sense. Sometimes I ignore it, either because I miss it or because it doesn't make sense (as in this case, where neither of the first two options was entirely true and therefore I was unable to accurately choose two). So nerr, and also tickybox!

You can change your answers to polls (if you want to retroactively disobey..)

Its an interesting thought, to obey and then be able to change my mind and disobey. My life would have been a lot more interesting if I had been able to do that all the way through...
