    Poll question: Do you think less of sports journalists - who aren't full-time columnists - sharing their sociopolitical views on Twitter?

    I don't follow sports reporters who share their political views on Twitter.

    Life is a lot easier that way.

    The rise of aggregator sites (Trade Rumors, etc.) keeps me from missing anything.

    It’s social media. Anyone can share anything. They’re people, too.

    But if they lose readers/viewers because of their views, they can’t complain. That’s the risk you take.

    Personally, I don’t care what anyone says, as long as it’s not hurtful.

    I should add, I don’t really follow sports reporters on Twitter in general.

    I’m just not that interested in sports minutiae anymore. I watch games and that’s it. Unless it’s a score update or some massive news, I’m not really interested.

    So basically this poll is asking if "sTiCk To SpOrTs!!!" is OK. Cool.

    What's it like living in a world with no subtext?

    I think the options have subtext. They just don't have your subtext.
