    'Twas the day before Christmas and all through the hub,
    no turker was posting, they were all at the pub.
    The scrapers were running, the pandas were crazy,
    but even St. Sergey was being sooooo lazy.

    @Randomacts was up, though and posting like mad
    Complaining his sleep schedule was screwed up, so sad.
    The mods, were all sleeping, fed up with the pay
    with visions of being on payroll someday...

    When from the servers there arose such a clatter
    @ChrisTurk ran to the datacenter to see what was the matter
    A riot had started, it was quite clear
    with pitchforks the members of the forum drew near.

    There were animals involved, birds, bunnies, cats and more
    Some llamas and pandas with a polar bear at the fore.
    Their signs they held high, showing that this was no lark;
    They marched towards the servers singing the refrain of baby shark.

    "We have these reactions, we add to each post,
    But what's the point if we have no way to boast?
    Except for the panda, we want no badges, no bling,
    but please can you bring back the weekly post thing?"

    @ChrisTurk considered this, but he decided to nap,
    he yelled out to the mob "I don't have time for this crap!
    There's data to harvest and servers to run,
    I don't have any time for these things that are fun"

    The mob -- how they surged! Their anger so thick,
    It was as if somebody compared mayo and whip.
    But on this eve of Christmas, never fear, don't be mad,
    The weekly post is returning again, so be glad.

    As the contract negotiated one riot subsided,
    the forum united where it once was divided.
    Joe Sno rose up, his nose a red most bright
    and he shouted "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"

    Placing bets: over/under on how long TPG is able to keep up the cute poems on a weekly basis.

    My bet: this is the end of that adorbs & short lived tradition.

    Smart money is on 2 weeks, this one & the one he'll spite write to make sure I'm "wrong"

    Pros:
    It mentioned popcorn and candy.
    Cons:
    Repetitive checkbox hell with the same set of questions for multiple pages.
    This survey could have been designed in a much better fashion and yield the same data for the researcher.
    A holiday travel cavity search by a TSA agent might be considered an equivalent to enduring the process of filling out this survey.
