Now, nothing against 'Extropian, know thyself', far from it, but we've been certainly poll-polluting the list way too much lately. Kathryn stated correctly that self-answered polls on electronic channels might be doubly biased. At the very least we should move future polls to private communications (whoever provoking a poll shall be charged with gathering the result and posting the totals to the main list), also, ExI might install some electronic (cgi-bin) poll infrastructure, especially among the nonconnected extropians

As to whether everybody on a listserv is an XNTX, a single counterexample should suffice. Removing self-selection-by-answering bias should be more difficult, but possible.
