Depends on how one frames the poll question. If you asked, “dear engineer, we are conducting a poll…
Do you think the engineering profession can survive without the intelligence of engineers?
Can mindless unpaid processes do the job better than intelligent engineers?”
I expect you’ll probably get mean looks for asking such a stupid question.…

Yes, you will get mean looks. I recommend you don’t use your stupid questions.

Sal tried to strawman me and I turned it back on him. And just as politely. So someone decided to protect Sal.

Not only is it a strawman, it's a pathetically lame one.  Sal would have us believe that the following two propositions are equivalent:

A. ID would be useful in the practice of science.
B. Intelligence is useful to engineers.
