comment How can I ensure users don't fear the word TEST in the invitation for usability testing?
+1. I even stay away from 'evaluate'. "I was wondering if you'd be interested in trying out a new system and seeing what you think." Of course the usability test itself is more structured than that...

comment Asking for relationship status
If you have a legal requirement to collect this info, then that's what you have to collect. Otherwise, collect something else, probably allowing user-input (for example, none of those options correctly describes my relationship status).
