The idea behind the poll was to include also those who
were not good generals.
"like" does not necessarily mean you think they were good generals.

POLL DESCRIPTION

dejvid Inactive Member wonders...

I must confess that when someone posts a poll on who is the greatest classical general, how much I like the general does have an influence. Hannibal is someone who I would rate as an all-time great, even if he wasn't someone I root for. Spartacus is someone I consider a competent rather than a great general, but who I would always vote for.
