Separate Forum for surveys?
There seems to be many surveys going on, for example in Commuting. Some members get all fed up with newbie survey posters who never report back with the results. They eagerly point that out to the next survey poster, who in turn may be genuinely surprised by the hostility. How about having a Survey Forum?
Ridemonkey tried this. It didn't actually work out the way it was supposed to...
Maybe you could try a polls forum? I've seen these at some other forums. It's either hit or miss.
