How do people feel about surveys?

Discuss the LLORG's and HTLAL forum's past and its future here.

How do you feel about language-learning surveys from new users?

I enjoy filling out surveys! It helps scientists and students learn more about language learners.
They're not my thing, but sure, why not?
I only like some surveys. For example, ones that are meant for independent learners, advanced learners and/or polyglots. (Feel free to explain below.)
We've had more than enough surveys, thank you, and I'd prefer the mods to be a lot more choosy about what they approve.

I second all of the below.

Also, we need to stop calling this thread a survey. It's a poll. Forum polls are the greatest things since velcro. I would fill them out every day. I'd fill out several a day if the poll options were suitably snarky.

I don't mind surveys but often don't finish them when it seems apparent they are fishing. It doesn't seem like there are that many on the site though I've been away for the last couple of months so I may have missed any uptick.
