I use different names too--maybe one of the names he uses was already taken somewhere else. Who knows.

I do think this is a bonafide student trying to do a research paper (ah, college--thank goodness Al Gore hadn't invented the Internet yet back then). If I'm right, he is certainly learning a free lesson or two about how to present himself, define his terms, find his focus group, and develop a thick skin all at the same time.

If I'm wrong and he's a spammer, I won't know because I didn't take the survey

Personally signing off in individual posts with different names, is unusual - particularly when trying to convince folks, your unusual request is legitimate. Signing up at a forum, specifically to gather personal information is also a red flag.

I don't consider the above paranoid, just common sense. But by all means...don't let me stop anyone from coughing up personal details or opinions for "Jaith" or "Gunner", or whatever else he/she wishes to go by.

I assure everyone that I'm no spammer. No smell test needed. I, of course, will not use my real name or even the same name. I'm simply trying to survey those who feel wealthy and would appreciate anyone's assistance that doesn't mind. Please note that judgments on my questionnaire are mute without knowing the specific goals that I'm trying to discern. What could I possibly scam you on by asking questions? I'm simply asking questions that I'd love participation on.

Thanks and have a wonderful day.
