If you couldn't be bothered to participate in the survey, I don't think we should be bothered to listen to your complaints about the results.
It isn't a vote......it was a PDGA survey....
Everything I have learned about surveys says that you want to achieve the highest response rate possible and creating a survey which is too long can create more variability in the results when an election occurs.
All I heard about the survey was "I took that PDGA survey and the friggin thing took like an hour and all the questions were the same as the one before".
BTW the response rate of surveys outside of those on the phone rarely exceeds 20% so we shouldn't expect high participation but the PDGA should have made an effort to state what issues may have been covered instead of just saying "Take the PDGA survey NOW!!!"
