This is a rather odd question asked by vivant. Of the 6 basic questions, which one annoys you the most? Maybe it's about you asking that question to the world. Or perhaps it's your reaction to getting asked that question by your child?

You can submit poll ideas here
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Should all of humanity be governed under a single government?
Choices:
Yes - votes: 824 (23.3%)
No - votes: 2709 (76.7%)
There were 3533 total votes.
The poll ended: October 31st 2020

Doesn't make for a good story if there's no challenge, right?

This might not be popular, but personally "Where" is probably my least favourite question mmm...
Because it's simpler than Why or How, but to answer it, many times you have to explain quite a lot for people to understand mmm...

This is indeed another odd question. Last time it was the "which organ body would you choose" poll.

I think it can be annoying or not depends on how the question elaborated, who gives the question, and when the question was asked.

The question of when can be annoying for me, especially if it used by either family or neighbors to ask, "When are you going to get a job?" Or "When are you getting married?" And etc.

Why? Life isn´t a mystery novel. Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn is a valid answer.

I generally like answering questions... But due to personal and professional things don't like to be asked "When?"
It will be done when it will be done, stop bothering me with ETAs and such

I think it mostly depends on who is asking the questions but for me, it's why definitely.
Sometimes it just comes off as too extra or someone who doesn't want to think much, you know? It's not always the case, so as I said, depends on who's asking me that question and in what tone ww( ・ั﹏・ั)

‘When’ has the most potential to be annoying IMO since I often hear it in an oblivious and whiny context (when will I get there). I wouldn’t say that any are annoying by nature though.

On MU, only "where" is not allowed.

I think back to my childhood. When I wanted to be annoying, I would always ask "Why?" to everything.

This question makes no sense. How/why would those be annoying?
Granted, the full question may indeed be annoying, but not due to any of those words.

You mean to tell us that you've never been annoyed by someone who always asks why all the time?

I’ve always liked MU’s polls but surprisingly this one is my favorite so far.
My pick is “how”, I don’t even know *how* to explain it but if somebody asks me a “how” question and I have to explain whatever they ask me in a detailed manner, I’ll be annoyed. Which doesn’t make sense bc SOP is important. BUT I’LL STILL BE ANNOYED!!!!

I like “why” though, hence it surprised me that people chose it the most. When I saw the result I was like; “bUT WHY?!!!” Why did they pick why? I want to know the reason. I want to understand them better.
