The many Pauls you missed is why I chose "missed".

Paul Rodgers (singer/front man)

Paul St. Peter (video game and anime voice over actor aka George Cole)

"The Big Show" Paul Wight (professional wrestler/actor)

Paul Johnson (prolific writer/editor of The New Statesman)

and I could go on and on...

BUT

You missed Tim Scaefer's favorite Paul... trust me... you did...

KISS' Paul Stanley

There's a limit to the Pauls a poll can poll.

And as for Paul Stanley, I was considerate of Tim Schafer, it's hard enough for him to choose between Shaffer and Du Bois.

There seems to be no limit on polls.

Look at polls like best adventure games of last 10 years or the new best adventure game of all time. Those polls go on forever.

Here's a few more Pauls that could be someone's favorite IMHO

Paul Allen (rich dude, cofounded Microsoft)

Paul Simon (singer, songwriter, actor)

Paul Verhoeven (director)

Paul Robeson (actor)

Paul Scofield

Imagine a game based upon all these Pauls?

How a game based on Tims and Rons?

I'll do that next, but not as a poll.

how do I specify that I mean the one from DF and NOT the sculptor.

There are several reasons for this:

* plausible deniability #1 - in case Paul Du Bois the programmer ever leaves Double Fine, you can say you voted for the sculptor

* plausible deniability #2 - in case one of these Pauls gets cocky for getting votes, you can say you voted to the other. Since the sculptor died in 1938, I don't know if he would do that, but better safe than sorry

* Giving the Belgian backers the false sense that this place is crowded with more Belgians than their actual numbers

What about Paul Levering and Paul Owens?

They are the best Pauls ever, hands down! No need to poll them!

What what!! Big up to 2 PLayer. Both incredibly great Pauls there too.

This is a responsible poll, having to choose between these 2 amazing Pauls could have caused riots.

Paul David Hewson ?

I'm sorry, this is a fully qualified Paul poll. While he is great, the fact that he dropped "Paul" from his stage name disqualifies him from this poll. I could have turned a blind eye if he had used bueno or anything that kept at least one of the letters, but at this point it's out of my hands.

You obviously missed my favourite Paul!

I cannot be held responsible for a Paul that loves his own Paul more than other Pauls

Do you really want this poll to include more Pauls? All Pauls? I mean, really, how many Pauls can a Paul poll poll if a Paul poll can poll Pauls?

...sorry.... ;)

Les Paul? Does he count if it's his last name?

Wow, a great Paul. Despite his real name not being Paul, he is in fact a true Paul. Not only that, but thanks to him we can add the names "Red Hot Red" and "Rhubarb Red" to a Paul poll without fear of losing Paul poll compliance. Anyone who tells you these names are invalid to a Paul poll is either wrong or evil.

Alas! There are many anti Pauls/polls amongst us

People, Pauls/polls are the basis of our society. It is what separates us from the animals and savages. Don't let a few Pauls/polls that strayed from the righteous path reflect on the many good and hard working Pauls/polls out there.

Vote now for your a favorite Paul and be a part of something greater than the sum of its parts.
