Simply put, there is a difference between a, "Which pet do you like better? Puppies, Kitties or icky reptiles" type poll, and one that is asking for people to state if they have been injured on BMQ and the severity/duration of that injury. One is of no real consequence, the other can lead to people forming opinions that are not based on facts.

Wouldn’t that reasoning apply to all polling on this site?  In which case, why have the polling option at all?

Because other polls on this site are for opinions. You’re asking for unbiased fact which is not possible with an anonymous poll like this. A serious injury to one person may not be near the same to another.

What are you trying to achieve? People get hurt on BMQ. They also get hurt falling on their driveway in the winter. The best way to help prevent injuries is to show up in shape, but you're not going to stop all of them. Sometimes @#$@ just happens.

From what I've seen, current basic training is wayyyy better at making sure people don't get injured than 20 + years  ago.

Just my $0.02 worth.

Yes after googling it further it seems the Forces made some changes with the ombudsman’s participation in 2000 after some dude seriously messed up his leg muscle. The report indicated the Forces were proactive and put systems in place to prevent needless injury. Good to hear.
