Neilsen has been rating things other than television for some time.  While 
I didn't get the email in question, a few years ago I was part of an 
internet use survey.  Essentially there was a background program that 
tracked all web use.  I think I got $50 every 3 months or something like 
that.  Eventually I decided that I didn't  want any more spyware in my 
computer (at least that I was aware of) and removed it.  They have 
periodically bugged me to reconsider.
