An online survey (rant)

That email came into my box as well. Despite the 20% carrot, I sent it directly to the trash. I'm pretty well done with "surveys." Thanks for letting me know that I made a wise decision!

There used to be a post here? I guess I missed it.

Your post was eaten..
But on general principles I agree. A waste of everyone's time, a glaring example of leading the public to say what you want them to say while avoiding any real question. Do it if you want the 20%, but don't feel deluded this could lead to any improvements, it's just a marketing thing to collect data on subscribers in order to sell their database more efficiently.

I read your post in my RSS feed reader, and I largely felt the same. Though I personally was more annoyed that there wasn't a General Comments box where I could tell them that I WILL NEVER EVER GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THEIR STUPID WEBINARS! Seriously, I wish there was a switch to flick to just never show me anything ever again that contained the word "webinar". Stupid name, awful concept, and extortionate price tag!
