Fandom vs. non-fandom impressions

I found myself interested recently in the sort of impressions people get of the fannish community on LJ, from both the fandom and non-fandom parts. (for reference, I use the term 'the fannish community' in order to refer to the community of people who consider themselves to be in fandom.)

So I decided to make a poll. Please answer questions 1 and 2, and then answer questions 3a and 3b if you don't consider yourself in fandom; questions 4a and 4b if you do consider yourself in fandom; or questions 5a and 5b if you're unsure about your status in fandom.

33(50.0%)
I don't really know.
6(9.1%)
No.
13(19.7%)
No, and people who do freak me out.
2(3.0%)
What's fandom?
3(4.5%)

2. Do you have any friends on your list who you consider to be in fandom?
