1. It's unlikely to get feedback from the larger Haskell community
2. It floods people with email they don't care (unless they care to keep
track of the results)
3. One can just as easily create throw-away emails, subscribe to the list
and answer the poll
4. etc...

My suggestion is to create a poll somewhere else and let it run for at
least a month.

Or a more elaborated survey with additional questions trying to capture the
community's feeling toward a masket and what kind.

I don't think we are in a hurry to get a mascot here so let's take the time
and do it properly.
