Xhi you are correct, I saw the "why am I being asked this?"
also but my question is: Why is HTG allowing this?
It seems as though it has to be a partnership or agreement between Google and HTG.
Unless Google is just highjacking the entire web.
Furthermore I did log in to HTG. I use HTG a lot but don't usually sign in and I had to recreate my account because it said I didn't exist. I also follow on G+.
The problem is that half of the page at HTG was unreadable. If this is not something HTG has agreed to, you would think they would be livid and ready for "Google world war III". I love Google but this is so wrong.
If it is a way to fund a site then so be it BUT set it up so that I have a choice of becoming a paid member of the site then I have options:
A) do the survey
B) become a paid member/subscriber
C) close the page and find the info somewhere else
as a note: I would pay for HTG The articles and how-toos are excellent.
Did a little trial and error,
the site works in:
does not work in:
Firefox (my choice browser), Chrome, Opera and IE.
