    While I'm naturally wary of "surveys" which do not state up front who is paying for them (or even in this case who is doing the data collection) it is a short survey and an easy chance to tick the Perl box, so reluctantly I'm in.

    There is only one text editor but you imply otherwise!

    I think I'm on board with the consensus thus far -- far too many questions unanswered to feel comfortable getting involved.

    Yes. What say about me, is true.

    Q: Which text editors do you use?

    Why is editor pluralized when the response form employs radio buttons?

    ...will be used for a scientific research...

    What science is being advanced by our participation? Whos banner is flying over the project?

    Hardly "scientific" ...

    One little anecdote:

    In one census the number of Americans who said to be of German ancestry jumped from ~50 to ~60 millions, just because "German" was listed first.¹

    I the next census "Croatian" was listed first, so Germans dropped and Croatians rose.

    You didn't even list "emacs", so which tool are you trying to promote?
