Would you mind answering a few quick questions? We're a Microsoft Partner doing some research on who's still using VB 6

I suppose it is one way of getting a load of commercial addresses of people using Visual Basic so that can inundate them with Spam.

If this was a genuine survey I could think of quite a few more relevant questions than the few that are there. Who the organisation is wanting the information would go a long way to eliciting a favourable response.

In this day and age I get very wary of people asking for personal information for no apparent reason and not knowing where it is going to end up.

What's more alarming is the level of defensiveness and paranoia from people ESPECIALLY in these forums. I'm sorry you feel the way you do, but you're way off. It should also be noted, if you just put your name, that would suffice. Last time I checked, you can't send an email to just John Smith.

paranoia n. 1 mental disorder with delusions of persecution and self-importance. 2 abnormal suspicion and mistrust.  paranoiac adj. & n. paranoiacally adv. paranoic adj. paranoically adv. paranoid adj. & n. [Greek: related to *nous]

Definition 2: Nothing abnormal about being distrustful and suspicious of anyone asking for personal information on the Internet for no apparent good reason.

If the request is genuine how about a bit more information. A company name that can be checked out. Microsoft Partner means nothing. Some idea of what you want the information for. Without that information it is little more than a whiz-kid fishing for information.
