TB End Users survey - do not distribute

I wouldn't be that radical. We hit the +500 answers for each language 
within about 3 days after we launched it which means many users have 
seen it.
In fact,  the Start Page channel twisted the profile of users (we don't 
know which % of users change the start page), you will notice that the 
users profile, usage of IM and so on is not disconnected from the rest 
of the world.

The volume of respondents, the fact that data are really consistent 
across EN, Fr, Ger in particular shows that it's not 100% fantasy. Not 
having a database with the email of our users doesn't help ;-)
