The majority want the ability to be disabled.

We don't know that. A majority never got to vote, probably because voting was open for less than 2 weeks.

I meant the majority of the people who voted, of course, but that's obvious enough to go without saying.

It's a rare poll that I'll leave open-ended timewise, especially when it's a board policy opinion poll.  Experience has taught me that if someone's going to vote on a board poll, they will vote on it within the first week of it being up.  The outcome would not have changed dramatically away from the 20% margin if I had left the poll open for longer.

any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now;
let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

In other words, Beleth gave you a coke for free, LF.  Then after you drank it, he said "That'll be $5"... but when you refused to pay... he banned you.  ONE DAY YOU WILL LEARN THAT WHICH IS THE ALMIGHTY.  One day!

I mean... I haven't figured it out either... but I'm just stupid.
Big Brother* is watching you!

It is done.  You can no longer change your display name without moderator help.
