And yes, 80% of people ranked one of 4 options which I consider unacceptable
first. But then, 67% of people would have done so even if everyone chose
their answers randomly.
It was a terrible survey, and a terrible summary. And it was unnecessary to
have a survey in the first place. It's quite obvious to everyone that "a
significant majority of the community will be happy with attribution by
URL", despite the results of the survey, which doesn't actually show that at
all (the survey doesn't ask anything remotely close to that question). But
that's also completely irrelevant.
