What do you think?

This is a controversial topic, and you may want to have your say once you have read some of our stories. The poll began on 6 Aug 2013. You can choose as many options as you wish, but you can only vote once. These are the initial range of typical responses. The poll will continue to be upgraded with options.
There is of course no scientific validity to these results. It’s just an experiment in feedback. We hope you will honour our stories and respond with open minds and hearts.
