: : We need scale to measure Indy fandom, rather than a cutoff.
: Really, there should be no stages of Indy fans. That is cruel and whoever has a twisted enough mind to think that needs to wake up and realize that we can't all know every bit about a subject. ok? ok.
I didn't express myself very well. I wasn't proposing a caste system whereby persons outside your circle would be ridiculed for being either too obsessed or not enough. I thought a scale would be interesting to see the range of Indy fans out there. However, Michaelson's words ring true. Different aspects of Indy inspire each of us to a different degree. A scale couldn't capture the true diversity of Indy fans.
We share a common interest. That should be enough. "I'm more of an Indy fan than you" is the wrong attitude. We've got to stick together, so we can fend off those nasty Star Wars fans. Just kidding... (I'm a fan of Star Wars, just to a lesser degree)
