If so, help me with my graduate thesis!

My name is Marion and I am a student at Cal State East Bay. I am trying to interview some current and former fans of the Smashing Pumpkins. If you are interested in possibly participating please fill out this survey Smashing Pumpkins Survey (http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFJRRV9rdnVVbUdYbXFGaFp6NGdHTmc6M A)

Thanks for your help!

If you were an intelligent graduate student you would know that you are not going to get a normal distribution by simply interviewing people from a website that hates Billy Corgan for the simple fact that he decided to grow up and not be depressed about things that were pointless being depressed over, and they have not.

If you were an intelligent graduate student you would not be wasting your own time and money and the time of others by writing a thesis on this "topic."

also the options you provide for your very first question of the survey are inane.

the question asks "On a scale of 1 -5, how big of a fan of the Smashing Pumpkins would you currently consider yourself? " and we are told 1 represents "never a fan" and 5 represents "the biggest fan".

how would you like me to vote if i hate the band now and used to be a big fan?

also seeing "the biggest fan" as a quantification makes me want to shove my head in a bucket full of jello and suffocate

I agree, it might have been better to have two bipolar likert scales, as it is not good to combine/confound two concepts (especially that have the potential to be mutually exclusive) within one question.

Question one could be: "On a scale of 1 to 5, how much of a CURRENT fan are you of the Smashing Pumpkins, where 1 is "not a fan" and 5 represents "a big fan".
Next question could be: "On a scale of 1 to 5, what was the greatest level or intensity of fandom you have EVER experienced for the band, either now or in the past" with the same options. (I believe a question further down basically addresses the second question, but it would indeed be less confusing if it was presented in this way, I think.) I assume she may be doing research on changes in attitudes.

Like James and D'arcy (and probably Jimmy), I'm waiting to be wooed back.

Wait, I think I need to change my "current fan" status on the first question, after hearing that steaming pile of shit song. Dock it a couple of points from 3 to 1, OK? Thanks!
