A matter of taste

Original post made on Jul 18, 2014

Why does the Weekly persist in discussing Smith's survey as if it was a meaningful exercise? Smith's survey was a biased, non-scientific survey that means absolutely nothing. Yet the Weekly once again talks about it as if it really tells us something. Perhaps Gennady should familiarize himself with how surveys are supposed to be carried out before singing the praises of Smith's "survey"

Meaningless is right - nothing more than a distortion and propaganda. I'm aware of a number of folks who took the survey a few times just to record how foolish it was.

Yeah I started filling the survey out, but it was so ridiculous I never finished it.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
