Comment (vaguely humorous, if anyone's in any doubt):

I'm in the process of doing a survey, partly using Usenet,
and after what I thought was a jokey reminder (I admit it
wasn't exactly hilarious), I got several replies like this:

>>1) I don't fill in questionnaires on the Internet.
>>2) 6 responses is about right.
>>3) Pointless whining is a mistake. Most poeple have already deleted
>>your silly questionnaire and will not be filling it in. Cope!

>>Do you have any idea how many people post survey questionnaries
>>to this list?
>>And do you think that chiding people for not responding will
>>make them want to respond, when there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
>>in it for them?
>>Forget about it. And make that MY Christmas present!

So I guess if you're doing a survey - don't remind people that you'd like
some response!
