I agree too. Just because a person is not tech savvy doesn't mean they're stupid, they just don''t have any interest in technology or computer/network terms. If I took the survey I would pass because I've been a computer hobbyist for many years.

If I took a survey on science and chemistry I would failed miserably because I have no interest in that subject.

While I agree with previous comments about the unreliability of email (and other) surveys, I don't see what the problem is with people knowing that HTML is a STD. Last time I checked, it certainly was a standard. It may be violated by certain companies, and come in different versions, but it is still a standard, and a published one at that.

Catching HTML5 is worse. It's resistant to ALL antibiotics. It's God's punishment for using Linux.
Repent!!! Switch to Windows, and it's gone in a Flash.

Who took this survey, windows users! Can't be from Linux users because we are more computer literate

It turns out USA is not the only member in club. Happens around the world aswell. Fewer than half of young UK adults know butter comes from a dairy cow and a third do not know eggs come from hens, according to a survey.
