I think it best if the poll answers are sent by private message.

What's the purpose of this?

Race? Sexual orientation? Why in the world would you need to know that?

I must say that I'm also curious why someone would want all this information. :?:

It's a study on internet society. I'd like to first know the demographics I'm dealing with. You're not the only community being asked this, so relax; nothing unscrupulous will be done with this information.

So what is this study for? A college course?

Perhaps, in the future, rather than just post up questions, be a little more informative.. Give us reason, purpose, background, etc. What you've done is no different than show up at my door and ask to go through my belongings.. Without a warrant, you'll get nothing from me.. Nothing I say.. :twisted:

I'm sorry; there was meant to be a brief explanation before the questionnaire, but I did not copy it properly.

That would definately help.. Especially for those people who are cautious with their personal information.. What with all the ways people can have their identities stolen and such.

That was precisely my reaction. Just sounded like some random data mining... "I'm going around collecting people's rather private personal information from various forums for possibly nefarious purposes with basically no explanation... so please, tell me all your personal details!"

No thanks. (No offense, but that's really how it came across to me at least.)

Put another way, I don't think I've even seen reputable polling firms or what not that have requested such an extensive list of personal attributes. It's not that I think any of the items are really a secret... but somehow listing them all off for someone like that just makes me really apprehensive for some reason. Sets my Spider Sense Tingling. ;)
