I think what you're seeing is that people want topics with substance, and the current content is... well. Okay, so we have established the majority uses Defender. When we get into the why though... we are offtopic? In that case just the poll would have sufficed, I guess.
Nowhere did I ask people to explain why they use it. It IS a simple poll (as you state it should be) to find out who uses which AV.

If people want to say why they use it then they are welcome to but I'm not going to keep debating ppl on why one is better than the other. They can state their opinion and move on.
