The tab key will take you from item to item.  There are about 40 questions each with two parts, then some demographics and then some open-ended comment boxes.  It will probably take about10 minutes to complete this.  The form won't submit unless all the initial two part questions have at least a "0" in the box.  Those questions are coded and numbered so I can match the output with the questions (for the curious --  I: Internet; T: Tone; P: People: S: Social; D: Demograhics; O: Open-ended).

Please rate each phrase or idea  between 5 and 0 in both columns.
