Arnold Schwarzenegger is a great Terminator but Rutger Hauer was outstanding in Blade Runner

You forgot the best of all robots. This movie has more creativity and craziness in 10 minutes than most franchises present in multiple films:

Enthiran (2010)

By the way, I can't agree that Roy Batty and Rachel count as robots. They're artificial, but not mechanical. They are organisms.

I can see where you are coming from, but I use 'robot' as an umbrella term here (i.e; artificial humans/replicants are also included).

We are asked that we do not bump excessively.
He does it several times on this "Idea" that was my "Idea" in a month.
Does "No One" ever look?
Does anyone Care?
I had this same "Idea" a year ago.
And Peter, I seem to recall your lecturing me about not duplicating other polls, and that "I" should make suggestions to other persons polls instead of attepting to make a better poll myself.
Where is your concern?
Poll Suggestion: Androids and Robots and A.I. Oh My

If it walks and talks and is not Humanoid, it must be in this poll! No, A.L.F.'s, are out. Sorry Alf! Which is your favorite Toaster? ...

Ed,

I doubt your suggestion languishing a year ago has anything to do with a recent discussion about bumping nor with this newer suggestion.

I did not remember your suggestion, and I doubt goddangwatir was aware of it either. If you wanted to draw attention to it you could have mentioned it here, though that still wouldn't necessarily mean that it would be used.

What I did know is that we have had other robot polls, including a similar character poll which is now inactive, so it is not exactly an original subject.

I do think goddangwatir bumps his suggestions a bit excessively, but he is also a new author and not really responsible for bumping being so commonplace. Unfortunately we haven't really reached any agreement on limiting bumping.

This is more than would usually be said regarding poll selection, so I probably won't say more and hope I won't regret saying so much. Thanks.

@Ed Jones (XLIX)

I am terribly sorry, I was not aware of your poll suggestion prior to this. I always try to find old conversations when I get a new idea for a poll to see if it has already been done, but I was not able to find anything when doing research for this one, therefore I decided to proceed in making the poll. Once again, I am terribly sorry.

@Peter

I will limit my bumping, and I fully understand that it can be percieved as annoying. Thank you for the feedback.

I must also thank you for making it public though :-)

GDW.
I have no problem with you. You think like I do. :):)
Thanks for the reply.
Apology not necessary.
I only brought this up because of Peter. Not you.
Thanks again for the nice words.
And thank you Peter for confirming that it is OK to make a poll that another has already made that is languishing and old and you think would never go live. Might you define the parameters that the poll board determines is languished, old, and Poll unworthy?
Thanks again.

I cannot confirm that, and I also don't make any such general rules. There is surely a difference between repeating a subject accidentally and purposefully (as you did in the past instance that you referred to).
