Summary16157: multiple choice option "other" cannot be selected without entering a text
Description

When using question type "multiple choice" with the general question setting "other", you cannot just select the checkbox for other. The checkbox is only ticked if you enter a text in the text field. The current implementation might lead to a systematic underestimation of the other category.

I must be possible to check the checkbox "other" without entering a text.

The implementation of "other" with single choice and dropdown is working as it should.

Very old issue : wok like this since 1.81 and maybe before.

Then : more a feature than a bug.

Yes, I know that this is an old one, but nevertheless something that really wrong (I use the word wrong only in rare cases - but this is really wrong, wrong, wrong).

Would this affect the way in which data is currently collected by LS users? I see Frederik's point and I agree to it (from a methodological perspective)
