	The only problem is that it won't determine what the market wants, it will 
determine what users that have the time and wherewithal to post(regularly) to 
this hypothetical site want.  SESI effectively has a huge version of what 
you're talking about that they store internally(and likely far more 
sophisticated), I'm unsure having someone trying to maintain a concurrent 
version publicly will help things much in any way, apart from their own 

	In other words, SESI is already tracking this information, and quite well. 
The determination of what gets implemented over something else isn't 
happening out of ignorance(they hear from their customers every single day), 
there are other issues.  However, adding your voice to what you think should 
be a priority is always a good thing(like you're doing), doing that is to be 
encouraged.  You're feeding the beast just by posting.  I just don't see the 
point of polls.

It's easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
