I have a few guesses for that phonomenon:

- There are a lot of people who are keeping a close eye on D, but aren't 
ready/able to commit to any use just yet. In fact, I've already been under 
the impression that that's the case.

- Troll and/or trolls. I turned on "enable IP logging", but I didn't turn on 
"prevent multiple votes from same IP", since shared IPs are fairly common. 
Maybe GirlProgrammer's been messing with it. Or maybe the Reddit 
D-Downvoters found it. Maybe I made a mistake by not preventing multiple 
votes from same IP. Maybe if it turn that on it'll apply retro-actively...or 
maybe not? I dunno, I really should get around to making my own poll 

- Maybe people misunderstood what I meant by "Which version of D do you 
primarily use?". What I meant was "When you use D, which version do you use 
more heavily?". Maybe there are people thinking "Well, I use D, but my 
primary language is C/Python/Java/whatever, so I'll say 'None'". Question to 
all, including lurkers: Did anyone say "None" because that's what they 
thought it meant?
