I know it's been talked about before, but are there any plans to do anything about the annoying occurrence of bumping threads by voting in polls? It's happened quite a lot recently. Someone is trawling through old threads and for some reason votes in a poll thus bumping a thread that is often several years old to the top of the forum. There's one in General Hobby Discussions at the moment, for example, a thread about titans where the last post was in 2004, which is now back at the top of the forum due to the poll.
Is it possible to set the forums so that voting in a poll does not bump the thread?

Several year's old is a bit much. We do generally ask that people create stop dates with their polls, and many mods make a habit of inserting stop dates where there are none. From past discussions, I seem to recall that there isn't a way to have a default ending date. For a few polls, we don't want them to end as someone will just start another one; plus, it's kind of cool to see what a few hundred people vote. For instance, the 6th. edition Vampire Counts polls "Which Bloodline?" was a no-brainer. That one stayed open and pinne. Imposing automatic end dates would confound threads like that, though they're not that terribly frequent.
You can always PM a mod about a poll that's been bumped, especially one that's especially old.
It can be annoying, especially when they don't post, jsut vote: i mean, if they atleast SAY something. Put just clicking a vote and that being it... that's kinda stupid.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

If it's possible I think it would be a great idea to stop polls bumping.
Yeah, it is. I unsubscribe, or I go and close the poll. A few polls we leave open, the "old perennials" like "What color scheme for your Wood Elves?" Otherwise, they need a closing date. You can always report a poll and ask something like "Does this poll need to be closed?"
