I agree with John, I don't like being blindly "baited" into giving product feedback to a manufacture, guised as a member.
Not that my answers would be any less truthful, or frank.
Given the variety of people that can belong to a forum (newbies or even people without bees), I would question the 'value' and 'truthfulness' of any forum opinions (even my own) for the use of steering product development/marketing.
I also don't like supporting buying a product when the manufacture only cares about their product.
To me, it feels like the manufacture is all business and little or no practical beekeeping.
I like to see manufactures participate in the beekeeping community.
I have used the product with good acceptance and reasonable results (for as little time as I have used it).
I will likely continue to use it, despite being a little bothered by the survey beng taken here.
