View as plain text  
Problems again with the survey design and functionality. Page 4 asks 
questions about Falcon, and to be honest I don't know anything about 
Falcon, but you've required answers to advance and only offered "yes' and 
"no' as choices.  Without a "Don't know" choice as an option, your results 
will be totally skewed. I designed survey questionnaires in my past life 
as a psychologist, and this one is fatally flawed. I'm done. I won't try 
again.
