Hey guys, thanks so much for your responses. I noticed that this topic has been tagged as "blog promotion thread", "spammer", etc. I reviewed the forum guidelines as well as similar posts with these tags and I'm confused why you've reacted this way.
I think we can all agree that Google Analytics is a common topic on these forums. I would be willing to pay for a solution to this issue. The poll asks if there are others who feel the same way. I could have started a thread like this: "Please support Google Analytics! I'll pay!". As you know, there are lots of these threads. We would then see others comment, add their "+1" to the thread and it wouldn't be marked as spam. Instead I thought it made more sense to do this as a poll where we could somewhat accurately gauge how much this matters to the community of bloggers.
1) this poll does not point to my blog - though I honestly didn't realize it would be such a big deal if it did
2) wordpress.com doesn't provide their own Google Analytics solution but as I mention in my blog, you can run Google Analytics on a wordpress.com blog
3) my blog does not offer a "simple, full featured and hack-free solution to running Google Analytics on WordPress.com" - though it would be awfully nice if it did
I kindly ask that you remove the inappropriate tags from this post.
