Comment surveys (Score 2, Insightful) 412

Not that I disagree with the assessment that nobody wants a $500 phone, but does anyone else really doubt how accurate these online marketing surveys are? To qualify (and get paid) you usually have to answer a question like the following one from a survey to gather information about enterprise class printers:

How many people work in your company worldwide?

  • 1
  • 2-5
  • 6-15
  • 16-100
  • 101-10000
Well, you know that if you don't answer with the last one, you don't get to participate or get paid. You know that people lie their asses off.
