Dear Friend,
A group of researchers at University of Nevada, Las Vegas, are investigating effects of Weblogs on “Social Capital”. Therefore, they have designed an online survey. By participating in this survey you will help researches in “Management Information Systems” and “Sociology”. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in this survey. It will take 5 to 12 minutes of your time.
Your participation is greatly appreciated. You will find the survey at the following link. http://faculty.unlv.edu/rtorkzadeh/survey >http://faculty.unlv.edu/rtorkzadeh/survey
This group has already done another study on Weblogs effects on “Social Interactions” and “Trust”. To obtain a copy of the previous study brief report of findings you can email Reza Vaezi at [email protected].


You know, spamming blogs isn't the best way to conduct a survey. Phil might even post you message if an actual human being asked him nicely (via email would be preferred so he gets to decide whether to publish it or not).

If you are an actual person, then join the conversation before dropping a request without preamble.


I guess they wouldn't have done it, if they hadn't already sent me two unanswered emails. The study might include a section of spam, social networks, blogs, and trust.


Yeah, and I'm guessing that their sample will be skewed towards spam loving morons. Do any of those exist?
