"Javafan mm",

We don't have many rules here at the JavaRanch, but we do insist that you use your Real Name and not some sort of "handle" or obvious alias. If you're not sure about this, see
http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp .

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
