Someone purporting to "research" fandom possesses shoddy methods and credentials, proves not to know what the fuck they're talking about and has dodgy ulterior motives besides? THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE IN RECORDED HISTORY!

Did you get a look at that thing? It totally failed even as a social sciences questionnaire. What the HELL use would it have been to neuroscience?

These guys are either totally incompetent scientists or totally incompetent con artists.

"Does Your Fandom Have a Sexy Brain?" Nobody was tipped off immediately by the fact that their come-on sounded like Viagra spam?

Think they're ever come back, or just quietly delete by the end of the day?

"Hi, guys! This is our new 'sock puppet' which we are using to research the fangirl cootie infestation, give us your Social Security and bank account numbers so that one Nigerian guy can use them for science!"

Seriously, did they sample everything in the pharmacy before they wrote that thing? Yeesh.

Oh, yeah, 'cause these guys come across as totally professional and some junk.

*snirk*
Mostly junk.

EXCELLENT. Ugh, it didn't even read as professional at all.

"Perfesser, they're being meeeeeeean to us!"

The last time I read questions like that, they were written on a cootie catcher with hearts dotting the I's.

LOL Absolutely! I was thinking Cosmo quiz, but, you're right -- those are more sophisticated.

I'm so out of the loop. :(
nitasee From: nitasee Date: August 31st, 2009 09:39 pm (UTC) (linkage)
You and me both. I have no idea what they're talking about, sadly, 'cause it sounds amusing.
goddessdster From: goddessdster Date: August 31st, 2009 10:43 pm (UTC) (linkage)
Still, I believe there some matter of pride in this not knowing.

That's the survey? You've got to be kidding me. Talk about loaded dice.

I always miss all the good stuff.

I've seen Cosmo quizzes and 'net memes that were more scientific than this.
