Scif-Fantasy Fans - Help me out!

This weekend I attended Concomcon. There was a discussion that raised some questions in my mind, so I am presenting you with a poll about it. I'll explain further sometime soon, but meanwhile, if you consider yourself a "fan", please take my poll, and pass a link on to your fannish friends. Thanks!
