Notes on validation
- No responses were removed for trolling. Luckily, imposing sane limits on some fields eliminated a lot of them.
- Currency conversion is hard when no one indicates the currency being used. Right now, rows indicating a currency type other than USD are converted to USD and everything else is assumed to be USD. Salary analysis internationally is sketchy at best.
