Let me first reassure you that I am, in fact, a graduate student at
Franklin University, and this survey is, in fact, for a class I am
taking in the graduate school program. When the instructor for the
course (Marketing Research and Theory, 601), handed out the assignment
to prepare a survey, she recommended we do the survey on behalf of one
of the companies for which the team members work to imitate a
real-world situation. Because I am an employee at Franklin
International, I suggested doing the survey on our HiPURformer
product. The group agreed that this would be an interested project on
which to do the survey. I worked on the survey on-line from home, I
happened to posted the survey on the web from work. As you saw in the
instructions, we were up front in indicating that the responses to the
survey would be shared with the manufacturer of HiPURformer. (We
didn't indicate who the manufacturer was only because we felt that
would sway the results of the survey.)
I apologize for any confusion around this. It's important for me to
tell you that, I, as all of us at Franklin, have the highest regard
for woodworkers. It is for you that Franklin International works. The
Masters program at Franklin University is aware of this research and
supports it fully. Thank you.
I googled Franklin University, found their site
and looked up the cited course (MCM 601) and everything the gentleman says
rings true. Maybe some here owe the individual an appology for assuming the
Identifying themselves as a student, while not also mentioning they
work for the company, is disingenuous.
Posting the same autoreply, what, 8 or 9 times to the group, isn't
going to smooth things over. Sending the same autoreply by email
to the people who post about it, isn't all that smart either.
I didn't try the survey, but I understand it's not compatible with
Mac, which means I'd have to go all the way downstairs,reboot the
PC into Windows, and take it. Not gonna happen.
Since you work for Franklin International and attend Franklin University
is that university like McDonald's "Hamburger University" where you learn
stuff like how much catsup goes on a burger?

Prediction: every person who posts to this thread will, or already
has, been direct emailed the very same autoresponse we've seen many
times in the group.

in Columbus, OH, which itself is in Franklin County. And Franklin
University predates Franklin International by about 33 years.
