Fwd: Re: SW geek/nerd/freak scale

Keilyn: I disagree with part of your implied statement. While I'm sure
there are SCAdians that wander through RL as though it were an event, I
don't think that your *average* SCAdian does so. That would imply that
there are a LOT of them wandering about RL...
We'll probably end up defining your average SCAdian by what he/she DOESN'T
do rather than what they DO.
