Poll: Yes or no

I've been looking for an excuse to use Blogger's new poll thingy for some time.

Regular commenter morisetn thinks that I should disable the auto-play functionality in my Last.fm widget:

If you don't fix that last.fm box I'm going to have to boycot your otherwise excellent blog. It scares the poop out of me! Plus, at work, it means that I can't just innocently check to see if you've replied. Leave the player there, just turn the auto-play off!
So it looks like I have to put it to the vote, even though my blog is not normally a democracy.

What do you think?

Head over to the right of your screen and scroll down to underneath the Last.fm widget and make your vote count!

Some reasons to disable auto-play:

1) You have to wait for it to start before you can click stop. I think that's bad design on the part of last.fm.

2) It starts up again on every click to a new page on your site.

All good points.

I wonder why they don't have a thingy where you can "pop it out"?

BTW I was one of the back-stabbing Yes voters, but what I hope is a mitigating factor is that I have "dikki radio" saved as a stream in Amarok (my favourite music player, which has native support for last.fm streams). So I hope you keep scrobbling regardless of the outcome of this poll.

I certainly hope you were only one of the backstabbing, two-timing, yellow-bellied, sons (and possibly daughters) of beeyitches who voted yes.

On the plus side, I'm a little surprised that this many people bothered to vote.

Going to have to check out Amarok. Rather like the Mike Oldfield reference - it's most appropriate.

Billions of bilious blue blistering barnacles!

You forgot to call me lily-livered.

Thundering typhoons!

I did too.

Consider yourself that too. ;-)
