Online News poll offended reader

Reader felt pigeonholed with comments that accompanied answer choices

Re: Will you be attending Remembrance Day ceremonies this year? (Online poll,

I was somewhat put out by the questions in your online poll regarding Remembrance Day. Under the ‘No’ option it states that because I tick No it means I have no connection to any veterans nor do I want to attend something that glorifies war.

Many people cannot attend for many reasons and just because they indicate ‘No’ it does not mean they subscribe to the conditions you put forth in your poll. A simple Yes or No for all of your polls would be more appropriate.
