Poll with results viewable to none still shows some details

Title
Poll with results viewable to none still shows some details

Short, concise description of the idea
Some question types on polls, even when the poll has "results viewable" set to none still display some of the answers, namely the scale type question.

Full description of the idea
I posted a poll on my Livejournal: http://www.livejournal.com/talkpost.bml?journal=robbat2&itemid=97497 I had the viewable results set to nobody, but the scale question for #1 still shows the tallied values. Could that be corrected in the LJ code to actually keep all of the tallies private when the "results viewable" is set to none ? I am not sure if it divulges any other poll information inadvertantly, but you might want to check anyway.

An ordered list of benefits

  • "Results Viewable: None" will actually be correct, as with the tallies displayed, it is not really correct.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • This could be a change in functionality from what everybody is used to, but considering that I can't find it explictly documented in the FAQ, and only a support volunteer could point it out (http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=52879)
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • It should be the simple matter of modifying or adding an if loop around the tally code.
