    ---Any survey in which participants are self selected is not a valid 
scientific study. I hope it is obvious to all that any meaningful 
scientific survey requires a random selection of participants. That is 
why professional surveys are somewhat expensive. One of our local radio 
stations conducts a survey on a different question every day in which 
anyone can call in and vote, but they always state " this is not a 
scientific survey but it is only intended to give listeners an 
opportunity to express their opinions".
