    Who here has actually ever been involved in a survey? There is no one I have ever met (been to 9 countries) and not a single person said they have participted. Where do the numbers come from? I could ask 3 friends if they support carrots and write a blog about 66% of Americans think carrots are fags". It doesn't seem to add up.

    I've been asked, and answered, in surveys, mostly in Seattle. I've even been asked to answer a Buddhist survey.

    Thread Starting
    - Do not post multiple threads in one day, particularly addressing the same subject. This tends to drown out other posters from bringing different ideas into the discussion. It isn't fair to monopolize the discussion. Posting two or three threads can sometimes be okay, particularly when they are on different subjects. But that is the exception, not the rule. If you are a relatively new poster in this forum, it is particularly important not to begin by spamming lots of new threads.
    -Don't post a thread with very little in it. A thread containing just a YouTube video or link is likely going to be dumped.
    -Do not continually post threads regarding the exact same issue. If you do not like nation X, that is entirely okay. It is fine to post a thread criticizing nation X. What's not okay is to post nothing but threads attacking nation X, day after day, month after month, obsessively.
    -Post replies in your own thread. Don't just post and abandon it. Keep addressing what others say.
    -Think a bit before you post. Do you really understand what you are posting about? Did you read it through? Is it really interesting? Don't just post a lazily written introduction to a link when you don't understand what the link actually says.
    -A thread title should accurately reflect a summary of your OP

    Shit, the media might have brainwashed me! I didn't really consider your response prior to making this thread. I suppose this kinda is a survey. Good on you for picking that up.

    I participated in a phone survey once in Brazil.
    They asked my education, family education, income bracket, family income bracket, if I owned property, if I had a car age, what party I voted for president in last election and a couple of simple policy questions(do I support the death penalty, life imprisonment and so on).
    They also gave me a code to their website(it's from a famous survey institute) so I could check it was not a bunch of kidnappers trying to steal my information.

    If you ever studied statistics you should know how surveys should be made in theory. Of course there is no guarantee they're not hacks that will mess with the data.
