    So there are two options with the vote “keep it”, and only one with “it’s got to go”.
    I realise, the editors don’t have to have studied statistics or mathematics or, indeed, psychology. But seriously, Two options for Yes and one for No???
    Could it be anymore manipulative or deceitful?

    How many options would there have to be to make it statistically, mathematically or psychologically correct ? I could think of any number but I suspect most of us would give up half way down the list :D  

    We all know that statistics can be manipulated to "prove" whatever outcome is desired.

    It's hardly a major issue given the world's problems right now and to suggest manipulation or deceit on the part of the Forum Moderators is surely a bit OTT ?

    More than OTT. It's offensive.

    I think " manipulative and deceitful" are offensive and OTT. 
    My suggestion for "keep or lose" was simply one of simplicity. I couldn't care less if it's kept or not. 
    IMHO the forum was a much better place without it . The whole issue has caused much division.

    I think @Daniel Haynes  has more than enough to deal with, a role he does wonderfully, without all this fuss.
    I'm more than happy to accept his judgement.
