Hi, all! Often, when surveys come up at a number of sites, there's a little pop-up that asks whether or not you agree to have Google Gears track your activity. Do you think denying it reduces the chances that you'll qualify for a survey?

Although I'm kind of a survey buff, I've never had this one happen to me! I think that if it did reduce your chances of qualifying for the survey..That wouldn't be fair! In my opinion. Not that all survey sites operate by what we consider 'fair', but still. I always thought the process of qualifying for a survey just involved demographics and things like that, not whether or not you're willing to download an add-on for your computer (unless the survey in question requires it, but I'm guessing it doesn't.) So my answer? Hopefully not!

I hope you're right. I fail to qualify often enough because I'm 63 years old!

I don't know but I get asked if I will allow tracking and I always say no. Harris polls is the worse one for me.
