...I was thinking it looks nicer to post two answers for the yea/nea sort of meta questions. (to wit Storage Networking On-Topic? )

BUT, I don't want it to seem that I'm trying to game the system for points. I think no points are earned for up/down votes of answers in Meta. Right?

I can appreciate what you are trying to accomplish, but it's best to simply ask the questions and let others be heard in a open forum. It's typically best to let users be heard with their own answers, rather than posting in this pseudo-polling format.

Pre-posting all sides of the conversation isn't necessarily the best way to get the clearly-vetted results you seek: Polling is not a substitute for discussion.

I left the questions, but removed the canned responses. But please feel free to contribute you own thoughts on the issue. Thanks.

    @CraigConstantine It's a good issue/signpost to hash out and leave for others to learn from. – Robert Cartaino May 14 '13 at 15:16
  • over here meta.networkengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/65/… , you deleted my first answer -- that was a real answer initially posted. Deleting it whacks 5 people's up votes? ...but I didn't want to undelete it. – Craig Constantine May 14 '13 at 15:16

    @CraigConstantine Ah, okay. I restored that post. – Robert Cartaino May 14 '13 at 15:17
  • I think my 'polling' puddle-stomping answers are now all cleaned up. :) – Craig Constantine May 14 '13 at 15:18
