With all the jokes about eldergays and gaylings made me realize there hasnt been on of these in a couple years. Stand and be counted and lets see how old the DL is these days. All you straight female lurkers go ahead and vote also, we know a ton of you are out there.
Time for a how old is the DL poll

And a bump back to front page

So far most are middle age and late middle age. Surprising.
|by Census Bureau||reply 3||02/01/2013|
So far 70.42% of DLers are 40 years old+. That about explains everything, really.
|by Census Bureau||reply 4||02/01/2013|
Well time flies. I'm 32 and being technically middle aged hasn't really sunk in yet.
|by Census Bureau||reply 5||02/01/2013|
A full 25 percent of DL is AARP eligible.
Seems low to me.
|by Census Bureau||reply 6||02/01/2013|
There is no way that that is surprising, R3. The DL has always skewed ancient. Only now are we finally getting some new blood, someone to combat the eldergay stranglehold.
|by Census Bureau||reply 7||02/01/2013|
Too many fortysomethings.

I wish this site had a sale & trade section for walkers and scooter and potty frames. I bet the prices would save us beaucoup bucks.
|by Census Bureau||reply 9||02/01/2013|
This isn't a fair poll. Many of us eldergays have died and there's no one to vote for us.
|by Census Bureau||reply 10||02/01/2013|
Speaking of how old DL is, hasn't it been longer than 16 years that it's been up?
(It always says 16 years of being more fabulous than last year...)
|by Census Bureau||reply 11||02/01/2013|
R4, It does NOT explain JANBOT.
|by Census Bureau||reply 12||02/01/2013|
R8, the 40 category actually contains 15 years not 10. That category should have the most response.
|by Census Bureau||reply 13||02/01/2013|
I didn't find DL until '99. I don't know when the site first hit the net. I believe DL was local bulletin board before going on the internet. I was already in the "waiting to die" category in 1999. I was 57 then and 71 now.
|by Census Bureau||reply 14||02/01/2013|
If you fucking 20 something assholes who think the God Damned world revolves around you hate it here so much, start your own fucking message board and get the fuck out.
|by Census Bureau||reply 15||02/02/2013|
Time to change your tampon, R15.
|by Census Bureau||reply 16||02/02/2013|
R15 is an eldergay pedo.
|by Census Bureau||reply 17||02/02/2013|
Not surprising that the smallest category are those under 20 though that is common for a lot of other internet boards. DL definitely does skew older than most internet communities.

"Too many fortysomethings"
You will be forty-something too one day... and it will arrive before you know it.

DataLounge, in one incarnation or another, has been around since 1995 on the Internet. It was originally hosted by out.com. They got rid of it about 1996 or 1997.
|by Census Bureau||reply 20||02/04/2013|
No one ever said otherwise, R19. You read into things way too much... There really are just too many fortysomethings here, and it's killing the DL (Lisa Whelchel? Golden Girls? Enough!).
|by Census Bureau||reply 21||02/04/2013|
This is a really poorly designed poll, OP.
|by Census Bureau||reply 22||02/04/2013|
Well, I'm sure many of the forty somethings aren't exactly over the moon about the justin bieber threads.
If you don't like Lisa Welchel, then scroll, bitch, scroll...
|by Census Bureau||reply 23||02/04/2013|
Curious what you think is bad about it R22?
|by Census Bureau||reply 24||02/04/2013|
|by Census Bureau||reply 25||02/04/2013|
Well, for a start, OP.... "40-54" when all other options (except 65+) are in neat 10-year strata. That's bad design. Particularly when 40-54 is the leading category. You should have made it 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, etc.
|by Census Bureau||reply 26||02/04/2013|
Lots of twinkle-toes here!
|by Census Bureau||reply 27||02/04/2013|
Or the new generation will fight it, R23. Good luck living forever, turd... You can't post about Lisa Whelchel and her ilk forever.
|by Census Bureau||reply 28||02/04/2013|
The demographics here appear to mirror those of Bigmuscle.com
|by Census Bureau||reply 29||02/04/2013|
Agree w r22 / r26. Not a useful poll.
|by Census Bureau||reply 30||02/04/2013|
[quote]it's killing the DL (Lisa Whelchel? Golden Girls? Enough!)
I truly do not understand people who say stuff like this. If I can skip the One Direction threads, then you can skip the Lisa Whelchel threads. It's incredibly easy.
Also: don't see threads that interest you? Start one, then. Start two or five!
Be an active participant in the threads you like and skip the ones you don't like.
|by Census Bureau||reply 31||02/04/2013|
I don't post about Lisa Welchell but I do chuckle occasionally when I read them, you little bitch.
"new generation"? Get real, cuntie. If this poll proves anything it's that you're a minority.
|by Census Bureau||reply 32||02/04/2013|
34 here (ok, 34 in March but practicing it now). lez. cheers.
|by Census Bureau||reply 33||02/04/2013|
Please, bitch. Not even a narcissist like you can escape irrelevance and death.
Do you even speak English? Learn how to spell and punctuate, you old fart.
|by Census Bureau||reply 34||02/04/2013|
There's nothing wrong with my grammar, you pea-brained little douche. I'm posting on a message board not producing a white paper. You're boring.
|by Census Bureau||reply 35||02/04/2013|
Is there anyth particular more useful demographic information about breaking it down by 40s,50s,60s, 70s that you lose by how I break it down?
40-54 is a common medical grouping for middle aged people in studies. 65+ is of course the designation for senior citizen.
Don't see what was the harm about grouping it as I did but obviously I understand if people disagree. Still an informative poll.
|by Census Bureau||reply 36||02/04/2013|
42 here and I have little interest in the Golden Girls, Judy Garland, Joan Crawford etc, but I love the campy quoting and bitching
|by Census Bureau||reply 37||02/04/2013|
"I'm posting on a message board not producing a white paper."
I really hope R35 is not attempting to represent the eldergays. All the errors he's making are embarrassing.
|by Census Bureau||reply 38||02/04/2013|
Embarrassing to whom? This is an anonymous forum.
That's the problem with the DL children---they take themselves way too seriously yet know nothing.
|by Census Bureau||reply 39||02/04/2013|
Yawn less, R39. Write better.
|by Census Bureau||reply 40||02/04/2013|
Bump because of the new thread.
