What can I post?
There are two kinds of posts - polls and discussions. Polls will have some options for readers to vote after reading the post. This could be them voting if they agree or disagree with the opinion, or they may be custom options the poster set. Discussions are similar but do not have the voting options. In both cases open discussion in the comments is encuraged on every post.
