Show someone's own answers to a poll even if they can't see others'

Title
Show someone's own answers to a poll even if they can't see others'

Short, concise description of the idea
When a poll has results viewable to none, and someone clicks on results, show them their own answers (if they've answered)

Full description of the idea
When I've answered a poll, the only way to get LJ to show me which answers I gave is to look at the results page of the poll. But if the poll has results viewable to none, the results page shows exactly the same thing as the main poll page - just the bars showing numbers. LJ should check if I, the user now logged in, have answered the poll, and make my own results viewable to me.

An ordered list of benefits
  • If you forget what you picked on a poll from a while ago, you can see. Avoid unnecessary re-answering of polls that would send extra notifications to the poll owner.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • LJ probably currently only has code to show all results and just decides whether to show them to you or not. Implementing this would require designing and coding a new "show just one person's answers" page. However, aside from that, I don't see any problems.
