Take your stupid survey, ram it, and then don't come back and tell us about it.

Hopefully surveys, questionaires, and phone solicitation will be the first to bite the dust. Find something constructive to do with your time.

Would consider answering your survey, but my boss expects me to work 2 hours/ 8 hours pay, and my other boss (wife) is even worse.

So ............... go away.

Minor little question or two here.

What is this questionnaire for? Ie. where is it supposed to be published?

What group is this questionnaire imputed to represent? Ie., world population? Internet users? English speaking internet users? Forum participants? Ed Yourdon forum participents? Ed Yourdon forum participants that reply to questionnaires?

Please reply and I'll be more than happy to take your questionnaire (unless other questions that I have occur to me, which I will assume you will be most happy and gracious to answer).
