Only 8 more days till my 41st birthday.Bloody hell only a year ago i hated the thought of turning 40 now im okay with being the age i am.
Know the feeling. I turned 41 on 05 April 2006. I felt a day over 40 and I didn't have a problem with it.
One thing about polls like this is they will not accurately reflect the true age distribution of members. It should also be noted that of nearly 10,000 registered members, more than half have never posted. Then again, how many members who do post come across this thread. I did so by chance. This is no criticism of DavidB
, who started this poll. Media phone polls are similar, in that they rely on participants responding voluntarily and so are not always a true indication of what the population in general think.
The best way to get an indication of the age distribution of members would be if we were required to give our DOB when we registered, but even this may not be accurate as there is no guarantee that every member will admit how old he or she is...
Still, there's nothing wrong with having polls like this and I don't have a problem in participating.
