Clicked on an SE ad from this site. Ensues a survey of my personal information which in the first 10 screens never attempted to talk about my view of SE or SE sites... Just mining personal details. Is the community OK with this? Definitely not a "pulse" survey. Probably one of the most invasive surveys I have seen since early Facebook.
This is actually the type of question handled for all SE sites on Meta Stack Exchange But the short answer is: No, the community is not OK with this, but the community has no control over SE's ads, surveys, policies, UI changes, etc.
