Communispace "invited" me to "participate in an online market research project".

Before confirming acceptance I will read their Terms of Use for members (participants), which is 7 pages long. In the meanwhile - I reviewed their website. They are a mass marketing research company with client corporations that span nearly every economic sector.

I assume they are building a consumer bank that can be accessed for any potential client research project.
Given the scale and value of their service/product (translatable data) - I hope they will offer payment as an option to gift-certificates (e-dollars) for the consumer participants.

Thought this was worth pointing out to UC forum members - that Communispace is a huge commercial marketing research enterprise.

Yes, as mentioned above they are a market research company. That doesn't mean it is not valuable to participate. And they do offer Amazon gift certificates to participants.
