Demographics of this forum

Based upon reviewing the various poll results, it seems the majority of people on this forum:

1. Have a net worth between 500k and 2 million,
2. Are between the ages of 40-59,
3. Are still working, and
4. Have no mortgage debt.

I realize that the majority groups in each of the different polls do not necessarily include the same people, but I suspect this summary represents a significant number (if not a majority) of people who participate on this forum.

Lazy, I understand your cynicism, I am a diehard cynic myself. But, I can assure you that I initiated this discussion out of nothing more than intellectual curiosity.
