As someone who has written test banks and surveys -- that survey was horrible and biased. However, it is nearly impossible to write a survey that is balanced and without bias of some kind. People's opinions are complex, and after you ask them one question you have influenced every answer after that. :)

There's a whole profession dedicated to this sort of thing...

Not defending anyone, just putting it out there for those on both sides of this discussion. 

Everyone, I have sent my comments to the BOD, have you?

Thanks,

Maerwynn
