I think it would be nice to have an option to create a poll that does not have comments. Such as an "allow comments" feature that you could toggle on or off. Sometimes it's nice to get an exact answer to a question without all the extra conversation. Plus then there would be complete anonymity.

I've thought about this idea, too, but if there aren't any comments, the thread won't be bumped to the top. So once you post the thread, it will stay at that 'position'. If someone is looking for it, I guess that would be the only way to get poll votes.
