An interesting point, but did you really think I intended the e-mail addresses 
submitted to be published? I've never taken, let alone seen, a survey that 
disclosed the identities of participants, but many collect e-mail addresses. 
At the risk of sounding too sarcastic, ahem:

   "unless you mean that we should see the results at the end"

Yes, that's what I meant when I said:

   "it's important that survey participants be party to the results"


Most surveys offer to e-mail the published findings to participants as a 
thank-you for their contributions. I'm suggesting this one might see a better 
response rate if it did, as well.
