My name is Keila and I am a student doing research on community preferences for renewable energy development in the Puget Sound area and am looking for people living near or around the Puget Sound to participate. I would be most grateful if I could ask for your participation with this study. Below is a link to the survey, it takes only 10 minutes. You can also choose to enter to win a $50 gift card of your choice at the end of the survey.
Thank you in advance for your help! Here is the survey link:
what area, Keilatron.spambot.uk? Just “the area”?
Apologies for the ambiguous terminology. I am looking for participants living near the Puget Sound area and the survey is on preferences for development in Puget Sound.
@frankie — It’s a real study, and she’s a real PhD candidate at U of Manchester. I won’t post her LinkedIn profile, but I found her there and on the University’s website.
But “spambot”? I’m not comfortable that this isn’t identity theft. There might be a PhD candidate by that name but what proof is there that this is her?
I am not sure where it says “spambot” on post…
I am indeed the PhD candidate and I emailed Jordan and he suggested I post on this forum.
I am a bit confused where the ‘spambot’ is coming from I just saw it for the first time in @frankie ‘s post… I registered with my email. Is ‘spambot’ showing up somewhere?
No, Keila – it’s probably more that it seemed weird that a .ac.uk address would post a survey link on a Seattle-based site. @frankie was just being suspicious.
And Frankie was also just being clever when he said “Keilatron.spambot.uk” – both “spambot” nor “keilatron” were figments of his fertile (not to say febrile) imagination. 😉
I took the survey, it seems totally legit.
I also have some ? about it. there is a thread with over 200 responses re opinions abotu development in this area. You didn tpost there. You want people to take a survey which may reveal personal data.. and you are from across the uS. Why not do a local in your area study? Why not put ads for the study in UW paper? Why not study development in your area?
Sorry Keila, your original post was worded almost exactly the same way our frequent scripted Spambots would phrase something – complete with “your area”
