Today when I accessed the HAF forum, the first thing I got was a full screen popup that is a survey or opinion poll about HAF. It offered me a chance to win $50.  I closed that screen and later shut off the computer. Now that I have later restarted the computer, dialed HAF, the same polling screen popped up.

Q: is that something the HAF is doing or is it some kind of scam that preys on poor old slobs like me?  I suspect the latter.

Scam. Nothing to do with HAF. If HAF organised something like this we'd tell people it is happening before we did it.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Than you. I suspected some scheme that would try to sell me a bible, a penis enlarging scheme. or stock in a wildcat oil drilling venture.

No, Glos - they drill things using wildcat oil as a lubricant.  It is said to work well.
