'Gotten' poll, the livejournal edition

To my considerable annoyance, the poll isn't duplicated over to livejournal, so here's a copy for those who would rather answer here. Please do substantive answers for only one of the polls.

4(20.0%)

In some British dialects, but not all
7(35.0%)
Other, ticky box, cats, I wish to complain about this poll
8(40.0%)


Anything further about regional variation or to what extent you notice differences between dialects (I'm not good at it) is welcome. If you feel an impulse to translate this post into British English, please don't suppress it.
