    While I agree that the glimpse of diversity that has been provided by
    respondants to this thread has been
    informative, the responses most definitely do not
    constitute a random sampling from
    a statistician's point of view.

    It would be interesting to know the true distribution, or a statistical
    approximation of the true distribution, of people on the list. I doubt
    we are going to get that, though.
