3. Your questions are also biased since relate to "marketing",,,once reader goes into final phase in which you ask for "private" information,,then we get into more "clear" marketing!,,
My suggestions to all site participants. Do Not answer such "thesis" or "research" ! It is not research as defined by the APA or any serious university thesis supervisors. So do not answer since at very end you are asked your email,,then more "personal information" !
I would recommend that site administrators "eliminate" such pseudo research on site!
Please,,,GWD ask your thesis supervisor if this is "acceptable"
Dr. H. Thorndike
It's just an online research site used by alot of people / students because it's free, it's just a small questionairy used in a paper as a small part of an assignment, it's a couple of seconds work, you don't have to fill out any stuff if you don't want to because that's not relevant for my questionaire and if you have huge amounts of time on your hands and you rather spend an hour on writing useless comments such as dear user Torlauf... Just click on your "back" button and don't fill it out. I just ask this as a small favour, you don't want to help me with this, just don't do it... No problems, no hard feelings
'My apoligies to Dr. Thorndike, I'm very sorry the questionaire is not living up to your golden standards, I'm sorry that you had to go through all this trouble
As the great economic genius Dr Thorndike already sharply noticed, they will ask you for more details, as the briliant and talented Dr Thorndike probably already tought of this might be the way that the FREE QUESTIONAIRY'S are funded, by collecting personal information. But again, you don't have to fill that out, that's optional.
Damned Dr Thorndike, I have trully enjoyed all the books you wrote, and I'm astonished that you, since you must be around a 100 years old by now, are still active on a ski forum. I'm also super glad that you're not some random other guy commiting identity fraud online, pretending to be the writer of my schoolbooks!
Now let's drop this, let me do my thing, and I'll let you do your thing, and hey ... who know's ... we might be best friends somewhere in the future
Thanks for the people who did help me out ;)
