Poll ResultsPoll 206: Favourite word/phrase used in English with accented characters?
Total votes: 2430
I was getting tired of writing poll questions and having dozens of people e-mailing to say, "You forgot such-and-such an answer! How could you??! I demand to put in a vote for it!" I normally write the poll questions in a panic about 2 minutes before I post a new question, and so inevitably miss some option that would have been obvious given another minute's thought.
So this time I thought, "I'll get you!" And I posted the question to the IWC forums and asked the posters there for all the answers they could think of. And I stuck all the best ones in the poll as options.
And man, did that ever fail. I received more "How could you forget so-and-so??" for this poll than any other one I've run. People sent in dozens of good suggestions, from tête-à-tête to naïveté, from fête to touché, from crème brûlée to bête noire.
See if I ever try that again.
