Those "surveys" are purely for marketing purposes so they can make statements like "9 out of ten dentists recommend...." There is no intent or claim that it is a scientific survey. Where do you think the claims in ads come from? Just ignore it, no reason to get upset, and get on with your life.

It's OK - I'm not really upset.;-)

However, before I retired I ran an industrial market research company; lectured on marketing at a business school, and feel that questionnaires like that - presumably not even tested across a range of browsers - merely contribute to the poor reputation of 'Marketing' as a profession. (As evidenced by many of the replies in this thread.)

So I still try to do my bit.
