I know I answered this poll but seriously, who cares? Are we scraping the bottom of the creativity barrel to the point where we’re relegated to ask about soda preferences? Not a single person who has participated in this poll, including the author, gives one singular shit about soda preferences.

Come on, guys. We’re better than this.

Should we make a post surveying everyone’s favourite colour next?

Maybe he works on Coke or Pepsi's marketing team and this really is serious for him?

I mean, you're not wrong at all and I'm upvoting you because I do agree with you. A shit ton of posts in The War Room are pretty pointless and add absolutely 0 value, but the gatekeeping on these posts is also getting pretty ridiculous. I'm not coming at you by any means, especially as you're a WR member I appreciate and respect - more so addressing the issue as a whole. It's pretty easy to scroll past a post. Yeah, this is not sales or business related, and has no value on a surface level, but it's provoking responses so at least some people are interested in inputting their opinions and I see at least one fruitful conversation at this point.

Valid point @BigCheese but it just feels so lazy authoring a post like this… 

They could have at least offered somekind of subtext to the question, diving deeper, debating how much of the perception is based purely on product/taste vs branding… Like, THAT’s a discussion… How is it that I’m doing more heavy lifting searching for intellectual merit in this post than the author? 

It’s annoying how the laziest posts get the most comments because it triggers a feeding frenzy of low-effort commission with the comments.

See my above comment. Yes, it is a real-life debate… which is why there’s a lot you can say about it to provoke a real discussion other than the absolute bare minimum “coke or pepsi?”.

I mean, come on.

I'm from the South US. Everything here is Coke 🤩

Also from the south. It's two parts right? Part one is that almost everyone prefers coke over other sodas, and part two is that everyone calls every drink a coke.

If you're talking to someone in the south and they say "lets go grab a coke" that should be interpreted as "lets grab a drink". Don't be surprised when they order anything including water, orange soda, beer, or cocktail.

I don't drink much soda, but definitely Coke if I'm going to indulge. Coke Zero more specifically. Pepsi sucks.
