The war for online quality is being fought at respondent engagement. So far, the solution appears to be identifying offenders and eliminating them. However, not all satisficers are equal; we need rules of engagement that guide us toward eliminating those respondents who provide us with poorly considered data and have an impact on the deductions and decisions we might make from that data.
