Thinking about the stupid World of Warcraft fliers here...

For me only #4 and possibly #9 depending on the bands.

Just marijuana dealing (use is one thing, dealing is another) and possibly in some cases newsletters (didn't vote for that option).

2, 4, 6, 7, 8 (though only marginally for the latter 3).

But seriously this poll makes no goddamn sense.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

2, 3, 7, 8.

And cause this is a BRTD poll, 5 and 9. Are you trying to test the waters for your own run or something?

4,5,7,8
The latter two less then the first two. I didn't select marijuana dealing because it said a history of marijuana dealing. Of course if the candidate was currently a marijuana dealer I wouldn't vote for them, but if they were in the past and apologized for it it wouldn't make me any less likely to vote for them.

Probably just the strip club and sports team ones.

If a candidate wore band shirts and moshed, i'd vote for them no matter what.

I'm surprised at how many people are such prudes about strip clubs and arthouse theaters, seriously you would be inclined to not vote for someone because they owned a theater that showed Shame (80% on Rotten Tomatoes) or Killer Joe (76% on Rotten Tomatoes)?

And what if the person baptized as an adult was still liberal on all issues? Because you know that applies to me.

Well knowing that would initially make you less likely to support them, with your liberal views then overriding that.

5, 7 and possibly 4.

I voted WOW because I just have this image in my head of the guy not being his best when there is a crisis because he spent all last night on a raid.

I voted 4 and 5. The publications one would give me doubts about the candidate for sure, and the baptism thing would definitely at least initially take some support of the candidate out of me.

So seriously curious, would the people who are saying they would be less likely for someone baptized as an adult say the same for any candidate who was a Christian?

With the exception of newsletters, none of these factors on its own would influence how I cast my vote.

I will confess that glossolalia would probably be a deal-breaker.

Some of these are things that I find a bit silly to make a fuss over but do apply to me and I have privately expressed concern about interfering with where I could go in local politics.

All except the sports team one.

Even you'd be bugged by an adult baptism? Again I ask to anyone voting that what is the big difference between that and a candidate simply being a Christian.

Voted 2, 4, 7.

2 = illegal.

Really, 3 is the most offensive to me. 2 is somewhat offensive, but I suppose they could placate me by spinning it off as small business entrepreneurship or something.
