    lol'd at "If the selected winner is a Canadian resident, he or she must correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question in order to claim prize." What's up with that?

    For example the used email address.
    Sans for the giveaway part, the email addresses aren't used for anything and I don't even see them. All the results that end up getting sent over to me and to any other potential advertisers are just some simple pie charts and such showing breakdown of Phoronix readers' demographics, interests, etc.

    Once, just once, I would like to see a well written survey.

    - under "Mobile Carriers" the only choices are "I use it", "I would consider using it, and "I am not aware of it", and only one of the carriers even operated in Canada

    - you're not allowed to say "I don't go to any of those social media sites at least once a week", so I had to click "other"

    - under employment, the survey choices have management track but no technical track (truly bizarre for a survey aimed at tech readers)

    - maybe it's just me, but I bet it would be a 5 minute survey rather than 10 minute if it wasn't for having to click "neither" a few hundred times

    - that's just what I remember

    Seeing as IDG TechNetwork is the one hosting it, who else would it be?

    Apparently it's only for people in the US or Canada. Fair enough.

    Agreed.
    I never married but I'm not single and have a child. I'm not religious so I wouldn't participate in a ceremony I don't believe in.

    Also am I blind or is the purchase of audio hardware not present in the "purchase for your work" part? Video cards not in there either?

    "Please check "Currently in use" for this row" Is this a bot check?

    I didn't have the option to check more than 1 type of employment.

    The cell phone carrier service has consider for future or not aware. It's missing the I wouldn't use that bull**** with a 10 foot poll option however even tho I am aware of them I clicked this option since I don't plan on using in the future.

    I must be tired I missed the computer code monkey option for job titles too, also again the ability to select more than one here would of been useful.

    Hey Michael, completed the survey. Since there is sensitive info (like age, ect), this information is being securely held and transferred right?
