And the point of the poll is?
Accuracy issues too. Self selection and honesty.

I plan to live forever. It's working so far.

Nothing just fun, don’t be too serious

For myself I believe everyone one here is honest and friendly , so I’m a bit disappointed no one voted for ghost

Well, I'm 21 (22 the week after next), and I feel like I might be one of the younger members around. Though I think there are some who are younger still.

I'm sure we have Ghost Writers here. Their demonic publisher contracts forbid admitting it.

Amazingly even Leslie Charteris while alive!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leslie_Charteris
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Saint_(Simon_Templar)
In real life he was nearly as amazing as his character.

Nothing to do with Ghosts, but I always think of the "Instrumentality of Mankind" and "Cordwainer Smith" when I think of Leslie Charteris.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cordwainer_Smith
I only ever encountered "Cordwainer" in a book of Welsh Celtic Legends. The Welsh version of the Irish Lugh is described as a cordwainer and makes a saddle at one stage of the adventure.

Peter Fleming, Ian Fleming's less famous brother wrote two books and likely was a real spy in the field. Spies are sometimes called Ghosts. Ian was mostly a desk jockey and wasn't attempting to write realistically, unlike John le Carre (a real spy till his first book was famous) or Fredrick Forsythe.

Sorry ... there was a joke option so I clicked it ... I hope this doesn't invalidate the poll?

Seriously. Don't put a joke option. I will always click it.

It wasn't an overt age poll. It was a covert maturity test  ;D

The undead one is clearly Eclipse, returning to activity his long deleted account with his threadomancy.
Slow and steady wins the race.
