My daily input from Amazon in addition to want to flog stuff included a request to write a review of everything purchased in past three years.

This is entirely separate from the regular purchase review.

So I with time kill waded through it all,simply giving an OK to this and 'Does what it says' on that.

One item was a Kingston MSD 30gig card for my tablet.

Another mail from 'Amazon help'. A query asking if the MSD would fit his Samsung Galaxy. I referred him to the manual or the box it came in or Google.

Then a news statisic on BBC came up with fact that Tablets have overtaken phones as stolen items.

Hmm does this 2+2 make a5?

Yes I've just received an email from Amazon with the message "Peter would like to know how many flash guns can you control from this unit ?" referring to a YongNuo YN-622N-TX i-TTL LCD wireless flash controller

Never answer a survey or market research or "review" about anything about anything is my sad opinion based on experience.

"Never answer a survey or market research or "review" about anything...."

Why on earth not?

I frequently get asked questions by Amazon potential customers about items I have bought.

Who better to ask?

I am always very pleased to help if I can.

I frequently get asked questions by Amazon potential customers about items I have bought.

In my experience an awful lot of these questions are totally superfluous as people just haven't read the information on the item where what they are asking is already provided.

*"Never answer a survey or market research or "review" about anything...." Why on earth not?*

Because the moment you do, especially on the phone, it just gives 'them' Carte Blanche to call you even more. Real Market Research organisations aren't bound by the TPS rules and tell you so, and the number of cold calls I get asking me to do a survey far exceed any other type. I just tell them I don't do surveys but still they call.

Due to possibly pestering more than anything, I use to do quite a number of product surveys on items that I had purchased through eBay, Amazon and similar companies.

I soon gave that up, as a waste of my time and effort. Simple seller feedbacks are something that I do use, because at least that serves a true purpose for others to possibly follow.

I suppose at the end of the day, it all comes down to one's choice, on how they think and react!.

I agree with BT the question asked is often missed on the goods they are buying on Amazon, however I do answer the monthly question sent by Amazon to help someone.

Sometimes fill in on-line surveys but keep out any personal information.

Telephone never answer any questions on surveys.
