I'd have to disagree, considering that's what it is - punishment. Do you mean that it's silly to support keeping
the punishment, instead of it's silly to call it

The new poll isn't really less biased. The first option has better grammar, and capitalization (especially on the "Yes"), which make it more noticeable and understandable. Other than the "no", which is conveniently not capitalized, I can barely understand the second option. Also, you still use the word "earned", implying that not giving a card is somehow depriving the player of something that is rightfully theirs (which is your point, yes, but it's still biased).
If you really wanted to make an unbiased poll, try the options "Yes" and "No".
For the record, I'm not trying to shoot down your suggestion. I voted Yes both times, because I agree that in most cases, people probably time out on a turn due to real-life issues and not because it's a strategic maneuver. However, arguments and polls should make sense. The mods will probably be more accepting of them if they are.
