Deliberate survey running on site (Qualaroo) 2/6/13

    While editing one of my hubs, a company calling itself Qualaroo popped up a question asking me about how I use HP. I hope this is HP sponsored, and not another malware problem looming on the horizon. Did I miss a memo?

      It absolutely is- this is NOT a malware problem. We're trying to gauge if some initiatives we're working on are going to make a dent, and to do so, we've got to test the waters (and Qualaroo is a good way to go).

      If it pops up, please submit a response! big_smile

        Not malware! Hurray!

        What with all our mutual previous experiences, many of us are a paranoid bunch these days. Glad to see that for once we are not being targeted again.

        I'll give it my regards

        I saw it very briefly as I re-published, but not long enough to click on had I wanted to.

    The company is legit, but they are selling some product that is to increase conversions.  Have not found cost yet.

    They sell an online survey tool that you download at only $49 per month.  LOL!  You download it on your site.

      Then this apparently is indeed not some internal survey that HP is doing of us Hubbers. So it looks like we are in advertiser malware land again. And the critter popped up while I was in edit mode! Oh, well...

        I've just seen the same pop-up as I began to write a hub.

    Sorry for any undue alarm this may have caused, y'all! Again, the survey is legit, and we'd really appreciate your feedback!

    Da critter popped up again. I gave it a worthy answer. big_smile
