Poll editing, should we have it?

Dpoll has a new description field and a simple markdown editor inline with the recent update.

One of the things people ask is support for editing polls. From my point of view, editing the poll question and the answers doesn't make any sense since it may lead to false posivites on the answers.

Let's say I have created a poll like this:

> Do you like @berniesanders?

And you have answered as "yes". After that I can edit the poll as

> Do you like @haejin?

And suddently your previous answer may be obsolete.

I understand people do typos, grammar errors in the poll body. You can always edit in other infarfaces, but keeping the initial data on the dpoll as a snapshot looks like a requirement.
