Poll by Email No. 17

        Several people have been clamoring for this particular poll so I finally gave
in, since my creativity has gone out the window this week. For those who
recently joined the list, several years ago it was widely noted that the list
had a disproprortionate ratio of bearded, gay, left-handed conlangers. Let's
see what the list is like today. (For the nitpickers out there: "gay" can
refer to lesbians, "bearded" means facial hair deliberately grown, be it a
moustache, goutee, or a full beard, and "left-handed" means that the left
hand is at least 51% predominant.)
        I am:
        A. Clean-shaven (or a woman), straight, and right-handed.
        B. Bearded.
        C. Bearded and gay.
        D. Bearded and left-handed.
        E. Gay.
        F. Gay and left-handed.
        G. Left-handed.
        H. Bearded, gay, and left-handed.

4. I reserve the right to edit your response for space and content. Not all
responses may be published.
5. All poll answers, however, will be accounted for. Multiple votes will not
count, you cheater. Hedging answers will be pounded into the closest category.
6. This is not scientific by any stretch of the imagination.
7. Poll topics welcome.
8. The poll results and a selection of responses will be posted next
Saturday, 6 July, along with a new poll question.
