This is a poll of preference when seeing italics used for internal thought and I don't wish to argue the correctness or incorrectness of using italics for first person thoughts in this thread. The discussion (argument) can be found here. Regardless of whether or not italics should be used to indicate internal thoughts, the use is widespread, as are the opinions. So I want to survey the forum members for their reaction when they see italics used this way in a piece. I've decided I do like them, they do add clarity, but I'm also not opposed to leaving them out if a publisher is going to care. So I voted, I like them, but it doesn't mean I am overly invested in using them.
