This is the most recent addition to the comp.lang.ruby Newsgroup FAQ:

If you are new to Ruby (or haven't previously taken the Ruby User
Survey), please take a moment to anonymously tell us about your
programming background and about your Ruby-related interests. The
results will be reported back to the Ruby community from time to
time. This helps us do a better job of helping each other, and to
more effectively expand the Ruby community for our mutual benefit.
The survey is at:
