If I was bored out of my mind I'd add all countries to the poll.  ;D (I wonder how many entries SMF allows...)

Name calling is not OK. If you have something constructive to say or point out, please do it in a useful way. Prefacing an insult with "I don't like insulting people" does not give you license to then insult people.

Oh, well, it doesn't always have to be useful or constructive.

Just if a member doesn't like something, rather than just insulting someone, maybe say what's bothering you, or post something random. Whatever. Just, you know. No name calling. Be Nice. Etc, etc.

I'd just like to say that I'm appalled at the lack of Rohan on this list. I don't see any of those guys rescuing Gondor, do you?

I keep looking for Red Country (or Starikland) myself.

Yay another subjective poll.

With a superlative and a limited list of choices!
And nobody can answer truly since we haven't visited all the countries there are. Dun dun dun.

Maybe we just try to find out if you can vote in polls when the topic is locked.  :P
