That's fine, but Usenet is not the Internet. And general consumer
market "surveys" are generally not welcome in special-topic Usenet
newsgroups, regardless of whether they are legitimate or just tools
to build mailing lists. By presuming to publicise your "survey" in
inappropriate venues, you are as likely to generate irate complaints
and/or deliberately false survey responses, as you are to gather
real information.

In the future, please restrict such posts to the biz.* hierarchy.
