    The Age of Members

    I am curious to know the age ranges of our membership. I know that the profile allows us to list our membership, but not everyone does.

    And lo, let there be a poll!

    So if not everyone does divulge their age in the public profile, why do you think they will tell you in a poll? That might create an odd dynamic which will give you a scewed result. Wouldn't it just be better to hire ninjas to track down these secretive people and poison or at least publicly humiliate them?

    anonymous... maybe not. Right now there are probably government agents and right wing conservative groups tracking the movements of this subversive element known as 'gamers'. It is a plot to take over the world. Once they have found all the identities of gamers worldwide, they send e-bombs to them all. The coded messages work into your subconscious and soon they have an army of warriors like the world has never seen. The new age of darkness that follows will pave the way for Cuthulu's arrival...

    Okay, maybe it is relatively anonymous.

    If members dislike the idea of this thread, then they should feel free to use the report button at the top of my initial post to complain about it.

    The thread has not broken any rules, why would I report it?

    I never said anyone had to respond, the sarcasm is just insulting.

    Another revolutionary idea is to contribute to threads instead of posting random gibberish to get a higher post count, but some mods don't get that.

    I thought the meaning of my post was clear, but apparently not. Perhaps my attempt at humor confused some, because they have an irrational fear of ninjas. What I was saying is, most people that would respond have already put this information out there. Those that don't have it in their profile, probably will not respond. To get good information we would do something along the lines of Moritz's idea.

    You seemed to dislike the thread. I was simply offering you the opportunity to say so in the forum's official manner.

    While I don't see any great merit in the thread, I neither like nor dislike it. It might get better.

    What I don't like: Mayonnaise, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, the smell of rotten eggs, the sound of finger nails on a chalkboard, the feel of old dry newspaper, the color purple (the color, not the movie), rule without representation, war, the sight of a child crying, people who let a little power go to their head, and those who think they are superior for no good reason. There are a few other things, but for the sake of brevity I have omitted them. For a more complete listing, feel free to PM me.

    This thread is rated M for Marsha Marsha Marsha!

    I am 26 and some change! Seems there's awful high number of "fogeys" on the forums.....I got a couple more years till I get my fogey card. What benefits can I look forward to?

    Arthritis, blood pressure pills, mounting bills (mostly them mounting you), crotchety older relatives wanting you to care for them, and the ever increasing sense that you missed something earlier in life (or simply forgot your keys).

    I forgot to mention the kids. At some point, you're forced by the government to reproduce and take care of these tiny creatures that just won't stop growing. Sure they start small. . . but yeesh! And then they turn on you and eat you, which is called puberty.
