Polls aren't scientific, at best they're a census --- not a consensus.
    It's fine. I should have added more options. WiiHacks has been spitting out errors on ever other link (this is the third time I have tried to respond), and after getting an error when trying to adjust the number of options, I got frustrated and just typed up three.

    Personally I dont care what you named your ....uh... wii..
    It's ok if you dont like the name your wii was given but you can give your wii any pet name you like. Playing with your wii too much will make you go blind though so be careful, it might also break. Id be a little careful when one of your buddies asks to see or play with your wii though.. kinda creepy..

That's the only thing that annoys me about the name.
    I hate the term WIImote... saying it bugs me...

    Disturbing jokes aside, it's the product name I don't like. I thought the console's original name (Revolution) sounded way better.

    PS: I had no idea so many people don't like the sound of ***mote. It don't like the way it sounds either, so I say "Wii remote" or "controller" instead.
