The "I Don't Do Polls" Poll

I'll be putting up the results to the Shaving Poll and the Hairy Bits Poll in the next few days. In the meantime, given that only a quarter to a fifth of the people who actively look at the polls actually do them, I present the poll that asks people who don't do polls, why not?

Isn't irony grand?

As usual, no one can see who answered except me. All comments unscreened.
