I don't quite understand - by using the word "deliberate" you seem to
be saying that the poll was set up to address (or at least partly
address) in some way the confusion. But the results of the poll won't
help to demonstrate whether users have understood the distinction or
not, and by maintaining the ambiguity in the poll title, the confusion
is promoted rather than resolved.

Can you explain further what you mean? Why not just clarify it?
