Polls can be done where the user is anonymous.

Totally agree.

First time I saw this post was on Tapatalk and the poll itself didn't show up. I figured it was just a harmless way for people to do the calculation by themselves and see how it came out.

Answer the poll? Never...not in a non-anonymous format.

And for a slick hacking group, even what appears anonymous could be non-anonymous. All kinds of identifying data can be gathered by participation in what seems like an anonymous survey.

That too. Being certain any poll is truly anonymous is another topic altogether.

The OP has more then 1000 posts and he describes his occupation as an accountant. He's a numbers guy. Nothing here can harm anyone. The bottom line is a number, nothing more.

Depends on your definition of harm. Information obtainable from such a simple poll may be limited, but if you think nothing useful can gleaned from filling out such a form, you are mistaken.

The response to the OP's question is that he is framing the question incorrectly. The most common mistake is that folks focus on the amount of income they need to retire. so called expert advise that you need to retain 70-80% of what you earn per year before you retire.

However, the critical part of this equation is what you remove from your budget that will comprise the 20-30% difference.

As o security concerns if you live in TV people of dubious intent already circled you as a potential client even if your not a member of TOTV. All it takes is a phone book. By the way if you are on Facebook, Twitter, etc they already know more about you than your spouse

almost tooooo true

One thing you may not be aware is with this software the person starting the poll can see who votes for what!
