Leading question[edit]

The question and provided answers in the image to the right strike me as leading. Are respondants being asked what Wikimedia should use advertising revenue for, or whether Wikipedia should have adverts or not? What about those who don't believe there should be ads, but if they are to be used, they should be used for X. --Oldak Quill 18:14, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I would have answered "All of the above, YES." But the question is confusing. The results total to 100%, so I assume that one could only pick one answer. But I don't know if that is true or not. It depends on how the percentages were arrived at, and more. More details are needed on the the poll instructions, numbers, calculations, options for answering, etc.. --Timeshifter 06:20, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
