I'm doing a study on Twitch Chat, and I need your input!

Hey guys! My name is Jack, and I've been a long time member of MPGH. I've come and gone since the CA Rez Mods Section died (rip), but I'm here today looking for some input on a study I'm doing through the psychology department at my university. I am investigating the hyper-aggressive behavioral phenomenon displayed in select stream chats, as well as breaking down the constructs that make up the subculture that is Twitch.
All that I'm requesting is for participants to fill out a sur_vey through Google Docs. All information will be anonymous, untraceable, and all specific opinions will be automatically grouped into non-personally identifiable groups. I know all of that might sound sketchy as fuck, but what I mean is that because this is a college study, I have to account for possible liability issues.
The other reason I need to make it anonymous is because the previous data recorded from Redittors was all taken anonymously, and adding transparent data to the pool will invalidate the data. Even though the actual data isn't really effected, being a college level paper, they still get pissed when you chance independent variables for no reason.
Once the participant has filled out the sur_vey, they simply click submit, and then are taken to a thank you page where they are told they can safely exit. All information retrieved is whatever is in each field at the time of submission, and is automatically transferred and organized in an online (via Google Docs) xml file.
Thanks to Arunforce, the link to the sur_vey is at the top of the page, next to the ads. It should look something like this:
Just click on that link, and you'll be taken directly to the questionnaire. Thank you in advance to anyone who participates, with the data so far, this is already turning out to be a really cool study.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment below or VM/PM me!
Also: I KNOW IT LOOKS LONG, BUT THE ONLY QUESTIONS THAT REQUIRE THOUGHT ARE OPTIONAL, AND YOU CAN SKIP A LOT OF THE EXPLANATIONS!
EDIT (6/11): 50+ responses in one day! Thank you all so much for your input! Even some of the troll submissions are pretty funny, and still (to a very very very small extent, I'm not asking you to troll) provides some interesting information!
that isn't even a twitch joke, pretty much every site's used that joke since forever.
Yeah, sorry. I didn't put an explanation for the questions as it might effect honest results. The point of the questions was to help distinguish low-activity users and high-activity users by requesting information that someone who is a high-activity user should/could immediately get. If I added lyrics or audio, if someone didn't know the name, they could Google it, or if they recognize the song but aren't high-activity users, then it would be false data.
Sorry for the confusion, I know that one is a little bit troll, but I promise you, there is a method behind the madness!
Also, thanks again for everyone who is participating! Gotten 50+ responses in less than a day!
