Maybe we should guess the median age rather than mean age, as Gaines and I can skew it if we are both logged on at the same time and there are only another 20 odd 'hip' youngsters online. In these circumstances the mean age would shoot up...

...In fact this did happen one time, Gaines and I logged on simultaneously and the site slowed by 20% the font increased by 400% and the conversation turned to Charles Bronson...

winter's coming
Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

Excuse me, but that is a personal, and rude question.

I would never ask anyone their age, and I tend not to respond to rude people.

The question here was to estimate/guess, what the average age of the people posting on Writers Beat might be.
