Perhaps unsurprisingly, Flayrah's regular contributors tend to want to "get the truth out there".

Wow, nobody showed up to harp about how Flayrah is a lying blog of GR sockpuppets; color me surprised.

I wish I had that much free time. :-)

I'm surprised there isn't an option for "Maybe, depends on who's asking." In fact the only maybe answer that's available implies greed is involved, while mutliple responses for both yes & no.

There are a lot of different types of media out there, how and where the questions are asked can play a major part in whether someone would feel comfortable in participating.

I was close to adding one at the start, but having more options felt crowded. You could perhaps view the more enthusiastic options as being less discriminatory about who they would talk to.

Incidentally, I'd really like to get a range voting system for some of our polls, although this question isn't suitable for it.

I think what can be more prominent to say though such a survey is how flayrah users define media. Such as how when you ask Americans what they think of Congress Approve/Disapprove their answer will not be of how their representative is doing but how they percieve the body as a whole. Which typically means that most Americans will think of a representative that's most polarized against their views cause lets face it, you keep those in power who you deem a threat most in mind.

As far as the word "media" furries will think of things like the Vanity Fair article, MTV, CSI, etc. Though it seems to have gotten to a point where it's working its way back to neutrality. This probably can be attributed to a combination of furries getting a little bit more wary of questionable venues, and the media also growing up a bit. First impressions are indeed lasting, but nothing lasts forever.

I had the opportunity to participate in the National Geographic episode of Taboo that focused on the fandom. I resigned that Nuka would be more than capable of providing whatever insight and information they sought and felt better not having my friends discover my interests via a television program.
