    There’s gotta be something in-between “Almost always” and “Only when required”! 🙂

    Also, I sometimes wonder if those who selected “Always!” wear their helmets to sleep, in the shower, etc. I know, I kid, j/k…

    Seriously, I think this is an issue that can often get blown way out of proportion. There are some major sociocultural forces at play on this one, and I usually prefer to let sleeping hippos lie!

    I see your point about needing an additional option… I realized that myself after posting the poll and have been hoping nobody would notice — thanks a lot for calling me out! 😉

    For future polls, perhaps we should provide a disclaimer similar to Slashdot:
    “Don’t complain about lack of options. You’ve got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks. Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you’re feeling creative. I’d strongly suggest reading the past polls first. This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you’re using these numbers to do anything important, you’re insane.”
