Hi,

My name is Nitin. I am a graduate student at University of Illinois at
Chicago (UIC). I am conducting a few minutes short survey on "Patterns
in Userids" for my research project. We want to study patterns in
usernames or userids created by people when they register on different
websites, etc. I would be really thankful if you could participate in
this short survey. The link is:

The survey has been approved by Institutional Review Board of UIC.

I can assure you that this is not a hack or a spam. If you have any
doubts, you can also find the above survey link at the Department of
Computer Science's research page

Nitin,

Our forum rules don't allow such advertising. This is the second time you've posted this thread. While the first one was removed, I'll leave this one here so you can see what action has been taken. This is not like usual spam and may indeed be a real survey, but we can't just allow this thread to remain active. You may want to email or private message the forum administrators - Fraser (http://www.bautforum.com/member.php?u=2306) or The Bad Astronomer (http://www.bautforum.com/member.php?u=3) - and formally request that this thread and your survey be allowed to be advertised on the BAUT Forums.

Thanks for your understanding,

Josh.
