Polls with silly questions

Over the last couple of weeks I have done a few surveys that ask silly questions.

Because of the topic, one survey company asked me if there was a child aged between 16 - 18, in my household, that could do the survey.

My answer was "No".

The next survey response was "Please enter a username or name for the child, so they could personalise the survey for them."

Er ... if I answered that `no', there wasn't a child aged 16-18 in the household, why would the next response be for me to name the non-existent child?

Do you get surveys that either ask silly questions, or seem to ignore what your responses are?

Have you had surveys that don't allow `Not Applicable', `Don't Know', or have no other negative options for you to select - or do you just select one of their responses, even though it is not your preferred answer?

I'm not saying these are Toluna surveys, as I do surveys for other sites, but I'm wondering if I'm the only one left wondering who makes some of these surveys up!

Your comments?

Or you get ones that make you answer a heap of personal questions and then get told the survey just filled up or.. sorry you don't fit the criteria that really annoys me especially when you have spent a good ten minutes on it..this has happened to me on Toluna too. Reply

Funny you should say that as some of the surveys I click on come up with a warning sign saying the site is not secure so I just shut them down. Have you had that happen? Reply

I agree. You question the value of the data collected when some of the questions are just silly. I do hate when you don't get a, none of the above, option & you have to choose something that you don't like. Just seems a waste of effort all round. Reply
