Good grief, people, this is a questionnaire for creating personas to help with site redesign. Personas include demographic information and descriptions of behavior. It will be munched together to describe several fictitious persons that designers can keep in mind so that their needs aren't overlooked.
Perhaps Sharron could have provided additional context, but you all might have at least googled "personas" before taking her to task.

 Oh dear, Ginger 

I was going to write to you off list, but it seems that if you think "the W3C is in the spy business" maybe  others do too.

So let me be as clear as I know how to be.  
   - This survey was created by volunteer participants of the redesign Task Force. 
   - The survey was not reviewed or sanctioned by staff of the WAI, the W3C, or anyone beyond the TF.  
   - The data will not be shared outside of this group of five people who are trying to create personas for the redesign - not shared with WAI staff, with W3C staff, with anyone else.    

   - There is no identifying data to tie the answers to specific individuals.
Regrets all around,

Dear Sharron,

Well, I see this point competely differently and for me it looks like the W3C is now in the spy bisness or data trading business!

Here in Europe we still have something like data privacy and fight for it thus I will most certainly tell people not to take the survey!

Yours sincerely
