British Medical Journal poll on boycott of Israel

The British Medical Journal is conducting a poll - in which members of the public are eligible to vote - asking whether an academic boycott of Israel should be considered. I don't usually vote in online polls because I think they are self-selecting and their results are therefore useless, but the British seem to be taking this poll seriously and have actually put up statements for and against the boycott. You can view the poll results here. But please go and vote against the boycott first. Let's help them make a better decision.

I voted also. I don't think they'll like my comments in the why did you vote text box.

Off on a slightly related tangent...

Why does the West produce so many left-wing academic types who actually think they're far more intelligent than the unwashed masses and that their opinions in all matters are naturally wise and correct???

Someone once noted that given a choice between the faculty of Harvard University being put in charge of the US Govt. or an equal number of people randomly selected in the street, he'd go with the randomly selected over the legends-in-their-own-minds leftist groupthink faculty. I agree.
