    I think they're unfamiliar with the system and somehow think they should have a poll in order to introduce themselves. Or maybe they're genuinely curious about mickyfu.

    a couple weeks ago, I saw like 6 or 7 brand new accounts created in like an 15 minutes; they all had polls and they all looked like readable spun titles and post. Shit like

    Hi New
    Hey Im new
    New here
    etc

    I was curious if this was a bot or maybe not. I should have screenshot it because they all showed on home page threads in the same instance. Just thought it looked odd.
