voice steal can only control info flow "in 1" of poly~ ?

I made a synthesizer with poly~ and found that when I turn off voice steal by using the message “steal $1″, it actually only prevent any message send throught “in 1″, other messages through “in 2″, “in 3″, etc. are still keep sending info to poly~.

Because of this reason, it seems that I need to pack a list and only use one inlet for poly~ if I really want to turn off voice steal function. However, other info sent to poly~ through “in 2″ and “in 3″ in my patch is a list that keeps changing its content.

Question 1: Does “voice steal” only control the info flow of “in 1″ in poly~ instead of being able to stop the info flow from other inlets of poly~ ? If so, any better way to stop the message flow for other inlets of poly~ in addition to inlet 1 ?

Question 2: Are there any object or way to pack different lists as the way we use “pack” object to pack a few numbers in normal situation ?

Thanks.
