Yahoo ebay and Amazon with Facebook leading the march already knows more than this survey will ever collect

 

Run your name through Google sometime to see some of the info that is out there on you. I just did it with my name and found all of this on a site called Mylife.com. Another site had my home address. There's nothing you can do about it so why worry about it?

 One of the things I find interesting in this thread is that the  majority of guys that rushed to answer the "survey" choose to use a screen name to mask their identity on a forum of like minded folks. Most offer only vague locations.

Also interesting is the number that felt it necessary to defend their decision to participate.

One chose to comment on my perceived mental state.

My next "observation" is there will be calls to shut down this thread.

Interesting stuff here....................Bob

...I'm just a high school student studying subcultures.

 

The Merriam Webster definition of "subculture": an ethnic, regional, economic, or social group exhibiting characteristic patterns of behavior sufficient to distinguish it from others within an embracing culture or society.

 

Granted, that we old car guys can be a bit eccentric, but I'm not sure that we actually qualify as a "subculture".  We're definitely a social group, but we don't seem to fit the rest of the definition.  Maybe if we could petition to become a "subculture", we could secede from the U.S. ... Oh wait, our members are from all over the world.  Never mind.  My friends say that I'm lacking in culture, so maybe I'm ineligible to become a member of a "subculture".

People who enjoy antique automobiles are a "sub culture" of the larger group of Auto Enthusiasts.

The Bums will always lose Mr. Lebowski.

 

This is a pretty interesting thread. On a scale of 1-10 I'd say Mark it 8, Dude... :o

 

(Since someone is already talking about getting this thread closed I suggest that we discontinue the Lebowski quotes so Ashley can get more responses to her survey.)

So, I'll stand by my original post. Even though it is, and was meant to be, benign it seems to have raised some hackles. I regret that, but my post has proved to be true.

Ashley, if you do exist I suggest a career on the West coast writing data mining software. You have talent. YOU GO GIRL!  ....................Robert Beck

 

 

Ironic that you have more "exploitable" information in your signature then this survey would provide.

 

I filled the survey out. Good luck with the project Ashley.

OK, once again.

The point of my post isn't whether Ashley is genuine or not or how much is already known about anyone.  It matters not at all to the point of my post. I was pointing out that by skillful  use  of the reader's "soft spots" their confidence and trust was almost instantly gained. It's a perfect mini example of how con games are run or folks are taken advantage of.

Was this a con game? Very likely not.

Was anything of great value given up? Very likely not.

Again, that isn't the point.

So, once again: I was only remarking on the ease of gaining some ones confidence by the skillful use of common bonds, interests, affiliations and their desire to be relevant......

Pretty interesting stuff.

I'm guessing if Ashley wrote her paper on the dynamics of the reaction to her post rather than the  dull minutia of the survey she'd get a far better reaction from her instructor............................Bob

Here is my final report. Thanks for all of the surveys you guys provided!

Very nice report.   Your awareness and grasp of concepts is way beyond your age.  Thanks for dropping by the forum and reminding us older folk that the younger generation will actually be OK.  Feel free to hang around. :)
