    I require people to pay me to answer questionaires
    by KarlAuerbach on Wednesday June 30 2004, @06:19PM (#13836)

    I figure that people who send out these questionaires are getting paid, and the raw ore they are mining are my opinions. So I figure that I ought to get a cut of the action.

    I'll answer such a questionaire if they pay me. (And yes, some marketing research organizations do, in fact, pay.)

    [There have been several market research and political polling professionals in my family over the last couple of decades so I am familiar with how it is done by many different organizations, including some of the biggest and best.]

    As it is, when I gave my personal info to get a registration in .biz or .info there was no intention for that information to be used for any purpose beyond that of consumating and perfecting the business transaction and subsequent billing and renewal.

    For that information to be used for surveys regardng other new TLDs is a misuse of that data, it is an improper interference with my privacy rights and interferes with my business relationship with the registrar and registry that I have been working with and to whom I gave my personal information.

    Clearly, those who did the survey don't have a clue about what constitutes privacy. One can only wonder how they could possibly have the sophistication to write good questions, much less how to comprehend and consolidate the answers.

    I suppose you could report it to their ISP as spam. You didn't solicit it.

    "I figure that people who send out these questionaires are getting paid"


    Doesn't anyone remember this nugget:

    http://www.icann.org/general/status-report-31mar03 .htm

    In order to further focus and accelerate these studies, ICANN has retained the services of Mr. Sebastién Bachollet through FINAKI. Mr. Bachollet, who has significant experience relevant to the task, will coordinate the conduct of this study. Mr. Bachollet will be working internationally on this project; on the basis of his qualifications and motivation, it can be expected that he will immediately establish a work program and follow up on it thoroughly.

    And who can forget this gem:

    http://www.dnso.org/clubpublic/ga/Arc12/msg01660.h tml

    I look forward to Sebastién conducting a through and professional job so
    that ICANN can move forward with the responsible growth of the name space
    without further delay.

    Best regards,

    Michael D. Palage
