    That was a great thread Skaterboi started.
    I had suggested that it might be fun to see a poll of the results, so here it is.
    Nothing scientific about it, but I think I captured all of the areas where people are involved (besides, the board only allows 12 choices anyway!).

    If you don't mind revisiting this topic, or here for the first time, please point and click away (Check all categories that apply to you).

    BTW, the poll is anonymous.

    :)

    lol!
    I noticed that too.
    The maximum # of choices the poll structure allows is 12, or I might've added a "fan only" category in addition to "fan + another category".
    ;)

    The problem with this poll there is no "purple", "I am the oracle" or "all of the above" option.

    They're called ubers. :lynch::p

    Although it wouldn't be surprising if one of them was Ottavio Cinquata, who attends skating events just to appear bored. :rolleyes:

    Checked off fan, recreational and past competitive skater, member of a skating club, and to a much lesser extent, support a skater and attend competitions (since they involve $$$)

    Whew, that's a relief, 'cuz I'd hate for folks to know that I'm really Elvis Stojko!! ;)

    I wonder if there are many skaters we've seen on TV who post here under "regular" screen names. Not that it would make their opinions more special than anyone else's, but it'd be interesting to know.

    Anyway, I checked "all of the above." :D
