No. It doesn't work that way. The mods made a decision to help with the flood of annoying polls and petitions by removing the ability to post polls (except in the designated poll sections) for all members. No one is saying this change is permanent, but it may end up being so, as it is a great relief on an already stressed system.
Deal with it.
Also, Chaos's post has been edited to remove the sexist slur and the thread has been closed.
