Green popup: "Are you enjoying FlyerTalk?" -- yes, this is from FT :)

There is a pop-up at the bottom of my screen that asks me whether I am enjoying FT...a green box with a yes/no button. Clicking Yes opens a dialogue box...

What is this all about?

Just a FT survey. If you say yes, you'll be asked if you want to naswer a handful of questions to help guide FT. If you don't, it'll disappear.

OK, it looked a bit creepy so I checked my defences and VPN!

When I clicked "yes" it just popped up a box with a phrase like "type here". No questions, so I closed it.

Text box was a mistake -- sorry! we removed it.

While this one may have been legitimate, I never respond to pop ups of any kind or anything which seeks a "click through." Next one may be malware.

So if I'm not enjoying Flyer Talk you're not interested in my opinion?

If it's meant to be an official FT survey, why not make if official with a site-wide announcement?

IB can't even have a survey on FT without a mistake?

What's going on with IB tech team? IIRC, almost every FT IT upgrade/downgrade/change/improvement, in the last 3 or 4 years (maybe longer), has been bundled with untested/unexpected errors and bugs?

...
This x2.
Looked like a phishing attack. Anonymous shortlink that could point to just about anything is a sure way to not get an answer from me.

Hmmm... possible you are using a different device and/or browser than the one you did the survey with?

Still going on...annoying. I feel like I'm in a Ghostbusters film.
