Default Poll wants "No" for votes?

So this poll expected "NO" votes should dominate?

A poll shouldn't anticipate, nor encourage, an outcome.

This poll can't stop world-wide participation. (The situation I'd previously linked to).

For the Speed Limits forum, I would've thought there might be a more-meaningful poll of, say, Rattlesnake Islanders for a narrow "Unrestricted Speed Zone" off their shore. There was an equivalent zone there, and is described on these pages here. Just like before, the "Unsafe Passage" regulation would be waived. It's deep there, and that shore already discourages small boaters due to wakes and what Mother Nature already throws against its shore. I can't say I've ever seen a kayak there. Nobody else goes there.

Rattlesnake Islanders at this forum are already self-documented, speed-enthused, and would participate. It would exclude world-wide participation.

These words of mine are only opinions: I haven't voted.

Some are apologizing for their undocumented sub-45 speedsówhere's the definition of GFBL?
