Thank you for your patience and feedback. We have tried to implement a system that will disuade bots without inconveniencing legitimate voters. Of course, finding this balance means that someone determined can still find a way to spoof the system. We hope that this will not be the case and that we can continue to provide polls here on our home page.

Sorry to shut the poll down but we're being hit by a bot. So much of our site is built around the assumption that people will behave well. We make it easy to add to the wiki, forums, etc. Why someone would choose to have a bot vote for "other" once a second in an inconsequential poll is beyond us. We are considering whether to require login for voting in a poll.
I don't understand the payoff to the person responsible. It reminds me of elementary school when the teacher would say "because of the actions of a few ..." Sigh.
