    Hmm. I voted 0. Leaning more towards unknown (though I'm sure there's a fair share of dislike). I dunno, anonymity is just my lot in life. Not that I'm complaining. I actually rather enjoy it. Makes collecting information much easier when no one knows you're there.

    Actually, I think a better poll would be:
    Do you care if you are popular?
    I'd answer: No.

    I think it was Michael Douglas in the film Wallstreet who said:
    "It's not always the most popular guy who gets the job done."
    I can identify with that statement.

    Who would want to be universally liked?
    That would be as insulting as calling someone, "nice."
    Nice is a word that is used to describe someone,
    who lacks any extraordinary qualities, whatsoever.
    What are you left with?
    "Oh, he's nice."

    So the important question to ask, "Is this a good group or a bad group?".

    We might ask, "Why is almost everyone here anonymous?".

    And why are their physical anonymity so well matched by their psychological mask?

    We might ask, "What have they got to hide?".

    And the answer tragically comes back as, "Only themselves".

    They have never learn self respect in their families, their schools, from their peers, or in the media.

    But they have learnt to hide themselves and their shame.

    And they hide their shame behind a false bravado that only comes from belonging to a group.

    And it is the group that facilitates and hides their shame.

    This group has all the qualities of a dysfunctional family - mothered by Mrs Briggs and Mrs Myers.

    Fluff, old chap, that is a decidedly odd sentence.

    I don't know, but my favorite people tend to be 4's, 6's, and some 7's (and 10's obviously, but that's just too much to hope for. It's more like I'm their fan). Hopefully I'm one of those numbers.

    Let's see... Three 4's plus four 6's, plus one 7's divided by eight. That averages to a 5.3. I'll round it up to 6 for fun. I have no other idea how to calculate this.

    Mine too except it usually involves a high score of 5. My post was referring to other posters who identify their popularity at 4, 6, or 7 in this poll. I was being random.
