You could win $100! Yes, it’s time once again to feed the PDD marketing weasel by taking a privacy-invading survey

PDDMarketingWeasel89457Every other year or so, Perfect Duluth Day conducts a survey of its readers in an effort to figure out who they are and what their deal is. To make up for the privacy invasion, we offer the chance to win $100 in a drawing, which convinces everyone to proceed without reservation or contempt.

The survey is now closed.

Why do PDD’s powers-that-be ignore their natural Minnesota Lutheran shame and prod you to disclose information that is none of their business? Because that’s how the vicious gears of capitalism work, you silly goose.

This survey will gather information that PDD’s marketing weasel can use to show other marketing weasels how this website is an ideal place to advertise certain products and services.

Rest assured, the intentions of this survey are entirely money-grabbing in nature, just as the rationale of participating in it should be. There are no plans to streamline content on PDD, based on survey results, in order to produce a highly targeted product that is perfectly tailored to your distinct demographic. PDD wouldn’t stoop that low. This is just about selling more of those little squares on the right of the page.

Your info won’t be shared with anyone, and you won’t be put on any spam list or further bothered in any way. It is Perfect Duluth Day’s policy to be as upfront and forthright as possible while taking advantage of you.

Thanks, and good luck in the drawing. This survey will run for two weeks; the drawing will take place on President’s Day.

I participated in the last survey with the understanding the aggregate information would be shared.  

It was not.

If you're feeding the vicious gears of capitalism, by all means, leave the goose out of it!  

I happily did the survey to help out good 'ol PDD and even enjoyed it.  I was almost tempted to click on "pick up dog shit" or "smoke pot" although I do neither with any regularity. Actually, I just plain do neither.  But when I click on the demographics I see that I'm right in there with the pack of PDD'ers.  Somehow I enjoy the fact that I fit in so well with the rest of you cliff dwellers.

I'm older than you, wildgoose, but then I take comfort in knowing that Frank Nichols is REALLY older, not just a paltry few years.

Asking people to disclose their name and then giving the "smoke pot" option is a little weird, but I like it and think maybe you can add some others like:

-make meth in basement 
-will be committing tax fraud in 2011
-enjoy trading kiddie-porn with Pete Townsend
-took college entrance exams under the name of high school athlete
-plotting government coup

Congratulations to Duluth's Michael Latsch, who won the fat check for $100 in our drawing.

Among the great achievements in Michael's life, he ranks winning this drawing somewhere between his bike trip to Iowa and falling into the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca when he was 5 years old. 

Thanks to everyone who participated in the survey; we really appreciate it.
