However, I did commission the YouGov research that they cite. (The Economist uses YouGov themselves as a source of information.)
That's "research", though - nothing to do with the specific area which I asked whether you had researched. So why refer to it?

Funny, though - if I were proposing to create a paid post, but I expected that only to be a token salary, I would say
that it was only going to be a token salary. Because that's not what people usually expect in a paid post, is it?
Odd that you didn't say that.
