Contributers to survey (14)



I decided not to add my own answers, as it seemed like a conflict of interests and my opinion usually doesn't hold that much weight anyway (I'm better at asking questions, not answering them). I'll also leave it to you to interpret the answers and add to them if your name is not on the list of original contributers. I'll repost with new results as they come in.
