- It's a free forum - so no income bias
It's an Internet forum - so the media of delivery is generally used by both younger (school age) and older (working age) populations
It's an international forum, so no national/cultural bias
It's not single-vendor sponsored - so it's not biased towards one manufacturer's audience or marketing image
It's a popular forum that is well known - so it's not biased by obscurity
It's got Toby as a web master - so it has a reasonable level of tolerance with pretty minimal content controls
It's got lots of pictures of Susi Mai and that helps.
I 'd be willing to bet that this is the one of the most "typical" samplings of the kiting population that you would find at any gathering.
