Quick poll: when you download something, do you check your checksums?

Here's a quick poll: when you download software from the Internet, do you run a check to make sure that what you have downloaded is what the publisher intended for you to download?  Hit one of the links below to cast your vote.  You will get a "Page Not Found" and that's OK -- I'll compile the results from the Apache logs.  Internet polls don't get any less accurate than this!

I'll tally up the results towards the end of the week.
