    Hello,
    When I tried to start a new thread I got this Survey popup:

    Is this something that BHW staff have implemented or is just another VB malware???

    pretty sure its legit. I have had it before, and also created a thread, and got told it was legit:)

    To mods though, it would be good to make it clear its from BHW, if I had known I would have happily filled it in:)

    Im curious on why webmasters opt into this sort of thing. I have seen this on other major sites. It is annoying and I close it out when I am running with adblocker off. With it on it does not appear. Maybe mods can share some insight of the point. I visited their official site and there is no sign up that I can see. Maybe the company contacts you and offers incentives for the data?

    Interesting

    That is pretty interesting. I haven't gotten it because I have adblocker but I'll turn it off for a minute and experiment.

    I have not seen it at all. Looks like malware to me.
