Being able to vote in this poll.

In the last 2 polls I have been told that I have already voted from this IP. I am voting from a static home address, so I know I hadn't. Am I only allowed to vote in one poll ever?

    spending my time on the report I have to submit tomorrow, instead of procrastinating by typing me-too posts.

    I voted for the first time three polls ago and was also not allowed to vote anymore after that. Plus the vote script also seems to use $ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} when it really should be using $ENV{HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR} if present.

    Right now for every corporate/University network running for a single proxy, only one person can vote. But a dialup user can easily vote multiple times since he'll probably have a different IP adress each time he's logged in.

    I propose using the user name for the poll vote status.

      Indeed. This same thing has been happening to me. It has happened to me the last few times I've voted. I have been chalking it up to being behind a proxy, thus allowing only one of the three PM members at work here to vote. Perhaps I was wrong, though. I believe I was the first one to vote out of our little group here, today, and I still received the message that I had already voted.
