All this is very interesting, but I wonder if it is truely representative. I just think that older fans, say between 35 & 50 are less likely to join a forum. There are exceptions of course, like me!!

This is true. I have always thought that the opinions expressed here were not a scientific representation of the entire fan base. I know many good older U2 fans who just don't have the time to play around on the internet, but that doesn't mean they care less about the band. They are some of the best fans in the world. In all there are probably more 30+ U2 fans than anything, those of us who came to like them in the 80's as a teenager or young adult. But on the internet you see mostly college age or younger because that's who has more of a chance to be on the internet more. All fans of all ages are cool and important to the band, but you're right, the demographics of this site are going to be different than the entire fan base. This poll, if participated in by enough, will be a good way to measure the demographics of who comes to this site.

Yeah, this is true...My mom is 47 and a HUGE U2 fan (she got me into them!) but she doesn't use the net nearly as much as me. With Popmart and before, she was telling me what was going on with the band, now I tell HER.

I was the only U2 fanatic in my school...it's cool though because it's what I was remembered for. Everybody says they can't help but think of me whenever they see or hear U2.
