Grue poll option

It is almost standard for any poll conducted by/on/for the halforums community to contain a nonsense option that mentions the word "Grue." This is in reference to the fictional "Grue" creature from Zork which eats people who spend too long in pitch dark locations. The Grue poll option usually serves as a "I don't want to contribute to this poll" option, which makes it largely extraneous and serves primarily in the form of a "no opinion but let me see the poll results" option (despite the existence of a "view poll results" link immediately following any poll). This meme is not really that funny anymore, but is near and dear to older users hearts so it continues to persist due to certain user habits.
