Re: [agileDatabases] Survey on Enterprise Architecture and Software Development
I found the wording of at least one of the questions to be objectionable.
Also, those "you must prove that you are a human" spam filters
are a much worse solution than the problem.

Only the one? I found the content parochial, somewhat racist and
offensive. As well as blinkered. To take but one example
" In your opinion, which country contributes the least to the
success of open source?
European Union Countries
No space for the home of Microsoft, Oracle, Apple etc. What could
be going on? And what exactly does the above have to do with
Enterprise Architecture or Software Development?

found it too dodgy to bother filling in.
(For the author of that survey: Ruby on Rails is not a language. It's
a framework. It's parallel to, say, EJB and Servlets, not to Java. And
while I'd use Ruby for an Enterprise app over anything else you listed,
in most cases, I would almost never use Rails. So how am I supposed to
answer the question?)
