    Someone once told me that the creative types tend to fall in the
    normal range on most scales (I forget just what context it came out
    in) but it's just that they notice more.

    Either that, or you're just so darned normal you don't realize it<g>

    Or it could be that "normal" in this self-selected group of
    individuals, is a little on the (nicely) weird side.

    maxine in ri
    decidedly weird, hopefully nice

    Those age stats are a bit scary. Nobody under 36 is interested enough in
    cooking to follow the group? Perhaps this is why so many folks in that
    age range are expanding towards critical mass from eating all junk
    food...

    I think that most people under the age of 36 don't know about Usenet.
    AAMOF, I am constantly surprised by the number of people who know
    nothing of Usenet and think we are all posting to Google Groups <g>

    I think they are too busy working, taking care of kids and keeping the
    house from falling down that they don't do usenet. My son has
    interests, but he participates in internet forums.

    Back in the day, if we didn't do usenet in college we were still able
    to discover it later because our ISPs bundled it. Now that usenet
    isn't part of an ISP package, it will fall off in use. That's the
    nature of the beast. ISPs will kill off usenet. Say what you will
    about Google, but at least it's still making usenet available to the
    masses.

    Usenet is a "new" thing for me since I've been here for only a couple of
    years.

    What I've discovered with our ISPs is they don't advertise they have a
    news server, but they have one. Doing a quick search at said ISPs
    website and it's there.

    Many major ISPs have it cut off completely. I can't get usenet
    through comcast anymore.

    The ISP connects you to the internet. A newsserver is a completely
    different animal. I still connect via Comcast (and before that, Bellsouth).
    I've been using NIN as my newsserver for years.

    You should have added "hourly" to the posting frequency question. There
    is at least one here that would fall into that category.

    Comcast used to run their own news servers. After that, they
    contracted with giganews and the cost was included in the price we
    paid for internet access. Maybe you're too new to Comcast to remember
    that.

    Checked the survey results. One other person admitted to being bored
    and argumentative. Are you the same one with a gender identification
    problem?

    Just askin'.

    But, CC, very nice that you provided that answer choice.
    And the one about the SO reading.
