BRL did exactly what is required of him and he has given the reasons for the delay in letting you know.
The policy was created to prevent 'response fatique' to surveys placed on the site. It is our editorial decision and we don't allow surveys that are purely for academic qualifications and/or the furtherance of a single career.
Like it or not, them's the facts and that's the policy. Like it or lump it.
I wouldn't push the air of hurt disappointment too much either. The option to start a new thread was given now that everyone has the same knowledge as you were writing with. If you are thinking of replying again consider your reaction if responding to a thread to later discover it had been started, and nutured by a journalist building, in your opinion, a negative story.
