Hey Talidan,
  If someone wants to suggest a different site for doing polls, I'd be glad
to take a look, but I'm probably not going to change away from Google forms
unless we find something comparable.  It's easy to make the forms, easy to
take the poll, and easy to collect, analyze, and view the data.

As a compromise, for future polls that I send out, I can send out a list of
the questions out to the mailing list as well. If people want to just email
me responses, I can fill them into the form on their behalf.  That way you
don't have to deal with the site, but we can still use something that's
easy to work with.

Would that work for you?
