Curious, Matt, if you or anyone has studied the distribution of membership: East-West; International; Age, Gender, and all that...

I don't have much interest in getting demographics from the membership.

I'm slightly curious, but since marketers ask the same questions, it might leave a similar bad taste in everyone's mouth.

I don't think it would bother anyone if you made the demographics questions optional. But then the statistics would be about useless, since they'd only be provided by a self-selected minority and would probably be skewed toward new members (since most people don't actually update their profiles often).

Knowing each other's demographics invites prejudice when reading comments.
