Phorm-filling

I participate in various online surveys, getting pennies, or prize draw entries in return.
Last night, I got sent the following invite – hands up who thinks it’s in some way linked to BTs Phorm experiment?

Hi Jennie,

We have a new survey available for you to take. You will also be asked if you would like to take part in an ongoing program run by BT in which you will be asked to take part in online activities. You will need to provide your e-mail address and register on the website so that you can be sent the details of how to take part. In exchange for taking part you will be entered into weekly prize draws. If you complete the survey but do not register to take part in the rest of the online program you will be rewarded 25p if you register to take part in BT’s online activities you will receive £1.00. You will also be redirected straight to a BT site at the end of the survey. Please be assured that your e-mail address will only be used to contact you about this study.

Or maybe I just have a mind that sees devious information-stealing software around every corner….
