Oh really

A very badly designed poll. The pollster makes the questionable assumption that every home user has only one wireless router or access point, uses only one firewall everywhere, and that if your answers do not fit in the list your actual situation can be summarized in 60 characters.

One does not need an Education degree (think having studied test design) to see the problems here.
The results will be determined by how respondents slice and dice their reality into the available answers, instead of on the true answers.
