I don't have a problem with people surveying us for research purposes, even if they do not contribute to the project.
What harm does it do?
Obviously surveying us for marketing purposes is rather more iffy, and any survey made for that purpose should be clearly warned as such.

Speak for yourself. I engage with OSM because I believe that open geographic
data should exist, and the best way to fix that is by creating it. That's
I think Dominik's request is entirely reasonable and I'm a little hacked off
with the negative-verging-on-paranoid response here. If you don't like it,
move on to the next thread and just don't answer the fricking questions.
